During coronavirus, chefs and restauranteurs adapt by creating “ghost kitchens.” It’s not spooky, we promise.
A ghost kitchen serves food through delivery and pick up only. Former LHHS wildcat and vegan chef Troy Gardner opened TLC Vegan Kitchen in the neighborhood.
Now, Mezes & More serves “Mediterranean gourmet to go” in the neighborhood.
Baker and chef Anne Marie Cariotis started Mezes & More after her friends persuaded her.
“Everyone is stuck at home, and my friends and I have all been ordering charcuterie boxes,” Cariotis told CultureMap. “One day I threw it out there that maybe I’d put some Greek stuff together. They all ordered it, posted photos on Facebook, and suddenly I had a business.”
She has four boxes available:
- Small meze box with hummus, pita, dolmas, spanakopita, cheeses, and olives
- Large meze box with hummus, tzatziki, pita, dolmas, spanakopita, tiropita, cheeses, and olives
- Vegan meze box with hummus, pita, vegetarian dolmas, and spanakopita featuring house-made vegan feta cheese
- Dessert box with 6 baklava, 2 Nutella baklava, and 2 cookies
