Although its namesake may mean “small plates,” Mezé Greek Fusion delivers anything but a small experience. The variety and versatility of the Greek islands are felt in more than just the cuisine of Mezé – they inform the very core of what it means to be a guest. Tourists can enjoy the open-air sky-high ceilings of the full bar and chic lounge. A couple out in the Gaslamp for weekend brunch can take in the city from the sidewalk patio. A group of 100 conventioneers are limited only by their imagination on the third-floor private mezzanine and bar. Locals looking for great late night food and drinks can rest assured knowing that Mezé has them covered. Vegetarian, gluten-free, and unabashed carnivore alike can comfortably sit side-by-side in one of the two private rooms and know that they are all about to have the best meal of their lives.
Fusion strives to intertwine and strengthen the best components of any disparate parts. You will see that here not only on your plate, but also in our philosophy as a family owned and run company. While great food, ambiance, architecture, design, quality and service are all integral parts of any restaurant; we feel that a little Philotimo is what really makes Mezé Greek Fusion stand above the rest.
What is Philotimo? It is a feeling, a drive, a sense of true pride and good. It is honor, beauty, courage, and gratitude. It is family, sacrifice, and humility. It is a complex constellation of values that while nearly impossible to define could not be more apparent when experienced. This ancient Greek philosophy pushes us to always improve and strive for perfection. It is a core concept that lives in our spirits and DNA, from our founders Patrick and Raymond Davoudi, to our managers, employees, and friends.
It is by this standard that we arrive at the Greek word Philoxenia. One could simply translate it as “hospitality”—and that translation would woefully miss the true soul and character of the word. Philoxenia is the sensation of being truly welcome; as if one were with a long lost family they never knew they had. For Mezé Greek Fusion Philoxenia is a feeling of belonging and camaraderie. It is seeing our owners or partners side by side with our team or sitting at a table with our guests all with the same goal of executing the highest standards of excellence. We are all one big family, and we welcome you to our home. Welcome to modern decadence rooted in ancient tradition. Welcome to a dining experience that thrills all five senses.
Brothers Raymond and Patrick Davoudi along with Aleko Achitpes, are just as much a part of Mezé as the whole crew, together yelling “OPA!” as one of Mezé’s signature saganakis is lit on fire tableside. These are the owners and creators of this unparalleled venue. In mid 2015, Joe Santos, seasoned restaurant COO and Veronica Goodwin, Event Sales extraordinaire, became part of the dynamic team in preparation to expand the brand and turn Mezé Greek Fusion into our future flagship restaurant.
