Mez takes traditional Mexican fare and turns it into a unique feast, using local and seasonal ingredients to create one-of-a-kind options. The menu rotates often and specials change weekly, but you can find staples like brisket taco, cast iron-baked queso, fajitas, steak and more anytime. Come by Monday–Friday, 4–6p to indulge in the Happy Hour Taco Bar, where all tacos are $3-4 and you can mix and match as you like. As for drinks, Mez is stocked with top-notch wines from all over the globe, a selection of craft and imported brews (including, of course, your go-to Negra Modelo), and a deliciously innovative cocktail list. Frozen Spiked Horchata, Mango-Habanero Margarita, sangria—your taste buds won't know what hit them.
Additionally, Mez stands out for the way it runs its business—they won the 2007 Sustainable Business of the Year Award, produce very little solid waste, compost all their food and use mostly recycled materials for their furniture and decor. When the ethics are as kickass as the food, it's hard to resist!
