The Blue Mezze Bar
Upper East Side

The venue is the sister restaurant of A la Turka which is blocks away on 2nd avenue and 77th street. Our design team transported the best of the Aegean culture and aesthetics to NY through applications of glazed brick tiles, walnut paneling, custom upholstery and marble-clad built-in units, creating a high-end yet welcoming Mediterranean ambiance. ​

    The flamenco dancer print, designed and project managed by creative designer Kerry Robertson, complements the walnut column cladding, creating the ultimate focal point of the dining space. ​ Special thanks to Elif Fotocan for her design efforts from Izmir, Turkey.
