For over 27 years, Mezzogiorno has been the gathering place for the Downtown art world and continues to attract a loyal, distinguished and eclectic clientele. In spring, summer and autumn, Mezzogiorno opens its doors for "al fresco" dining on the outdoor patio and sidewalk café. In winter, guests enjoy our large dinning room with it’s distinctive shadow boxes and prominent wood burning pizza oven.
One Hundred artists were commissioned to interpret the restaurant's theme of warm summer days. Their Cornell-like boxes -- containing paintings, objects and collages -- form an intriguing puzzle that is on display along the walls of the dining room. The dramatic centerpiece of the interior is the giant ceramic mask that adorns the wood burning pizza oven. All the interior furnishings were imported from Italy, including the antique Florentine bar.
Authenticity and simplicity have been the central themes of Mezzogiorno's cuisine and philosophy since the day we first opened. Our menus offer a selection of both classic and innovative dishes. These enticing recipes are prepared with the highest quality ingredients which follow the seasons, a culinary approach that ensures the produce is at its peak both in flavor and freshness.
