John Gorham’s new restaurant, which was announced back in March, is just about open! I got to attend a really awesome opening party for MEC last weekend. Complete with a DJ, tons of happy guests, delicious cocktails and a sampling of the menu, it was one heck of an evening.
Though a wordy name for a restaurant, Mediterranean Exploration Company is just that, an exploration of the cuisine of Israel, Turkey and North Africa. (You can even see photos of John and MEC Executive Chef Kasey Mills’ research trip to Israel on their website/Facebook page.) Similar to John’s other restaurants, Toro Bravo, Tasty n Sons and Tasty n Alder, MEC’s menu features small plates that will be served family-style as they are prepared.
