The culinary conversion at 161 East Houston is complete. Oliva has completely vanished, and in its place, Mezetto.

This transformation from Spanish to Mediterranean cuisine happened seemingly overnight by construction standards. Roughly four months elapsed between the initial DOB filing and actual launch. Now the joint is ready to rock-n-roll. Last night was the obligatory soft-open, and the dining room was totally packed. But you’ll need to wait until tomorrow for the taste testing, according to the Facebook page.

From their About Us:

Mezetto was inspired from the word ‘Meze’ which refers to a selection of small dishes served in the Mediterranean as breakfast, lunch or even dinner.

If you’re looking for a flavorful tapas-style meal using fresh ingredients, Mezetto is the perfect place for you. Mezetto restaurant is focused on simple cooking, healthy eating and preserving the traditional flavors and cooking style of the Mediterranean by incorporating fresh fruits, vegetables and grains into most dishes.

The on-premise liquor license is now active.

How do you think Mezetto will fare at the corner of Houston and Allen?
