To Do: $5 Mezze for Zaytinya’s Fifth Anniversary
Next week, the five wallet-friendly drinks include the Pom-Fili, a spin on sangría made with white wine, vodka, triple sec, and pomegranate juice; the Lemon Thyme, lemon ouzo with thyme-infused simple syrup; and Mediterranean-influenced versions of the cosmo, sea breeze, and lemon drop.
Among the five $5 desserts is the Turkish Delight, a delicious sundae of walnut ice cream with yogurt mousse, honey gelée, and phyllo that has been a fixture on Zaytinya’s menu since the beginning. For something new, try the Black Cherry Yogurt—Greek yogurt topped with black cherries and cherry sorbet. Desserts aren’t mezze-size, so there’s plenty to share for just $5.
