Fast-casual Mediterranean concept Mezze Me opens at 4700 Guadalupe St. Suite 9 in the Triangle on Friday. The restaurant from Moody Ugur, a native of Turkey, will source from area farmers and producers to create a menu of customizable bowls that use pita, spring mix, brown rice with quinoa or basmati rice. Diners then choose beef and lamb doner, chicken doner, braised lamb, kofta balls or falafel and can top their dishes with a selection of Mediterranean mezze (appetizers) such as red pepper hummus, zucchini yogurt with dill and walnut, and spicy tabouli. Bowls cost less than $10.

“It’s been a longtime goal of mine to open a Mediterranean restaurant, and Austin is the perfect city and community,” said Ugur, who graduated from college in Austin before operating two restaurants in Instanbul. “Though we have an abundant amount of restaurants, an authentic, quick-casual Mediterranean restaurant was lacking. I’m very excited to be back in Austin serving the food I grew up on.”

Mezze Me is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
