THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mesopotamia Restaurant Review

: Colorful mosaic wall tiles and etched-glass light fixtures make for a Middle Eastern art deco look, but the menu is even more surprising. Thanks to a Turkish owner and a Belgian chef, Mesopotamia’s food is a little of both. That’s why you can get smoked eggplant dip or honey-baked goat cheese salad, followed by grilled striped bass with Hoegarden beer sauce or steak au poivre with Belgian fries. The early bird special features soup or greens, an entrĂ©e, dessert and coffee for just $11.95. But if you’d rather come late (the kitchen serves until 1 a.m. every night except Sunday), try the grilled lamb. The wine list is international menu and includes some impressive choices for under $20.
