A new restaurant with sweeping waterfront views and a focus on coastal Mediterranean cuisine has opened in Delray Beach.
The concept is the work of several New York restaurateurs who bring their successful Meso Mediterranean brand to South Florida from Rye, New York — this time with a riverfront twist.
Located at 900 Atlantic Avenue, Meso Beach House features both indoor and outdoor dining in a coastal chic setting complete with boat docking and private dining space. The 280-seat eatery — accessible from Palm Beach, Boca Raton, and Delray Beach — offers lush greenery and wooden accents for a tropical, Instagram-worthy backdrop.
"We set out to create a space that’s chic and sophisticated, while also being approachable and inviting," Dane Asermely, partner and creative director of Meso Restaurants, shares with News Break.
A James Beard Foundation Honoree, chef-partner Sean Olnowich created Meso Beach House’s menu, which focuses on seafood-centric dishes with Mediterranean influences.
Signature items include a house pain cuit (cut bread) served with seasoned butter and eggplant caponata; charred prawns; a local wahoo crudo with gooseberry, citrus, pickled chilies, and olive oil; and spaghetti topped with fresh uni (sea urchin) and lemon zest.
An ideal spot for sunset cocktails, Meso Beach House also offers a variety of beverage options. Signature cocktails include the Crystal Clear Margarita made with clarified ingredients, citrus and lemon-pepper salt, and the Pick Me Up, a unique twist on an espresso martini made with vodka, tequila and espresso.
For wine connoisseurs, the restaurant will also feature an expansive bottle selection, including unique and small batch wines. On weekdays from 4 to 6 p.m. guests can enjoy Sunset Hour specials, offering craft cocktails and select food items for $10.
Meso Beach House is located at 900 Atlantic Avenue and is open Tuesday through Sunday from 4 p.m. to midnight. For more information visit mesorestaurants.com/meso-beach-house.
