Nerai has just introduced a new Meze Bar Menu – a collection of delicious dishes designed to make dining congenial and social. While in many cultures a “mezze” is simply a round of appetizer dishes, at Nerai the style is more Greek in fashion – meaning an entire meal can be enjoyed in shared format.
There are five categories of dishes on the Meze Menu at Nerai: cold, chilled, wrapped, crispy and grilled. By choosing at least one dish from each category, a full meal can be had by even a small group, with everyone getting the chance to enjoy a wide variety of tastes and textures.
Nerai is renowned for its fresh seafood. Enjoy half a dozen oysters (Bluepoint, Wellfleet, Kumamoto, or Kushi); a jumbo shrimp cocktail, or a lobster cocktail featuring half of a 1.5 pounds of fresh Maine lobster.
A traditional Greek salad, a Grape arugula salad, a fresh tuna tartare or a platter of pita bread with spreads including the ever popular Tzatziki, hummus or Spicy Feta is next on the menu, in keeping with Greek tradition.
Fin phyllo pastry and exotic fillings: choose from spinach pies, Brie cheese pies, or a decadent duck baklava. Nerai specializes in bringing modern flair to traditional Greek plates.
Some crunchy, savory samplings are next – try Saganaki sticks, zucchini Kefte, shrimp Loukoumades, or our very own Chips Nerai (zucchini and eggplant sliced thinly, fried until crisp, and served with a light Tzatziki sauce.)
Mediterranean cuisine at its finest: enjoy Alaskan king crab, grilled octopus, or lamb chop “lollipops”, all grilled to perfection and not a second longer.
Pair your choices with ouzo or mastiha based cocktails, or order a few bottles of authentic Greek wine from our select stock to enjoy with your meal. The Meze Bar is the perfect way to spend an evening with friends or family at Nerai.
