A Mediterranean Affair That Ends With Cannolis in Dyker Heights
It’s a lovely evening in Dyker Heights when you start with a Mediterranean affair at Meze. Expect classic Greek food in a quaint dining room with exposed brick walls and stringed instruments hanging from the wall. While hummus is a solid dip to start with, try some other favorites like the cucumber, yogurt, and garlic dip, or the tarama, a whipped caviar spread. There's a robust list of mains, from Greek specialties like Moussaka—a bechamel-topped casserole with eggplant and ground beef—to simply prepared whole-grilled fish and other fruits of the sea. With its welcoming vibe and attentive servers, you’ll feel right at home.
Follow up dinner with a little stroll over to Grandma’s Bakery for some coffee and cannolis. Housed in a space that has been a bakery since 1919, Grandma’s is a family owned and operated shop that supplies the neighborhood with Italian, Danish, and German baked goods. Don’t skip out on the cannolis—some say they rival those found in Little Italy.
