Austin fast-casual Mediterranean restaurant MezzeMe Turkish Kitchen is opening its second location right on the Drag this year. It’s set to open at 2530 Guadalupe Street, taking over one of those recently shuttered Daphne’s Kitchen locations, sometime within the first week of September.
The menu features build-your-own grain bowls, pitas, or salads. Options include proteins like beef and lamb doner, chicken kabobs, falafel, or vegetables; additions like spreads (hummus, carrot yogurt), green beans, and feta cheese pastries; toppings; and dressings.
This new MezzeMe will feature a back patio and a dedicated parking lot. The restaurant will be found just a block away from D.C.-based Cava’s first Austin location, which serves up a similar menu of customizable grain bowls, salads, and pitas.
California-based chain Daphne’s Mediterranean, which took over all locations of Noon (formerly known as Verts), closed up all of its Austin restaurants last week. MezzeMe owner Moody Ugur opened his first restaurant on 4700 Guadalupe Street in the Triangle in June 2017.
