Mezes is one Danforth restaurant where you can usually count on a wait. That’s because the spot is often packed, buzzing with activity and chatter, as well as lots of authentic Greek dishes big enough to share. Mezes has a great wine list and roster of homemade desserts, which include Baklava and Chocolate Baklava, Galaktoboureko, and Yaourti Me Meli.

What distinguishes Mezes from other restaurants is consistency where it counts. They began with a few select family recipes, dishes that would be served in any traditional Greek home, and every one of those remains, unchanged, on their menu. Fresh, quality products are the base of every dish, and are certainly the best promoters of taste and texture. They encourage liveliness by emphasizing spirited, gracious service because your enjoyment is about more than good food, it’s about good company.

Byblos, located on the first two floors of the Storys Building, is the latest venture from Charles Khabouth and Hanif Harji, the same pair behind Weslodge and Patria. This restaurant is highly stylized and intently themed, this time drawing inspiration from Eastern Mediterranean regions.
