Mezze & Dolce

Light Mediterranean Meals Paired with Ample Dessert

Inspiration: Kefi (New York)

Kefi is so simple and so good. This upper west side eatery is rich with traditional Greek flavors, but easy on the pocketbook for those looking for a low-key night out. We ordered the Kefi Salad, a more refined take on a traditional Greek salad with shredded greens and fennel, sweet tomatoes, dill, feta, olives, and a half dozen other herbs and vegetables. We also shared the pan-seared striped bass, which was loaded up with hearty veggies, capers, and olives, but still left ample room for some dolce – just the way I like it.

Kefi inspired me to be creative with the “form,” not just the taste, of my food. I’m going to try shredding and chopping my salad veggies in the future so that they soak up more flavor, but still remain hearty and nutritious. Looks like Jacque’s already ahead of the game – check out her shredded Brussels sprouts salad – it’s delicious. –jaime
