Mezza Mediterranean Grille
Baba ghannouj, an appetizer I sampled recently at the new (since March) Mezza Mediterranean Grille in Southfield, completely lived up to the restaurant group’s descriptive bywords: “Healthy. Fresh. Delicious.”
I’ve never enjoyed a better rendition of the smoky chargrilled eggplant dip made with tahini, lemon juice and garlic. It’s available a la carte or as part of the Mezza Starter, a trio of appetizers I recommend that includes wonderfully creamy hummus, a blend of chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice and hint of garlic, and tabbouli, a mixture of fresh parsley, tomatoes, scallions and cracked wheat tossed with a house-made olive oil and herb dressing.
