Our Story

One Bite at a time…

The story of this intimate Turkish Restaurant began ten years ago when the Bolukbasi brothers opened Mezè in Adams Morgan. Shortly after its opening Mezè became a neighborhood favorite as a spot for authentic Turkish cuisine and lively entrainment. Mezè’s success and loyal customers inspired the Bolukbasi brothers to open a new venture in the Capital city.

The answer was not too far from Mezè in Dupont Circle. Dupont has always been an area focused on food, friendly atmosphere and healthier living. At Ezmè, our customers will taste this combined experience one bite at a time.

Upon visiting my newest venture, you will have the chance to taste the work that I have put into perfecting Turkish cuisine.

I have spent the past 15 years researching  regional Turkish cuisine in order to personalize Ezmè’s menu. Having begun my professional career almost two decades ago, I have enjoyed cooking from a young age.  My mother, an experienced cook, has helped me to build my repertoire over the years and many of her recipes can be found right here at Ezmè in Dupont Circle.

I have been building new bridges in gastronomy between modern cooking and old style recipes and  I am excited to have the opportunity to share my newest creations with you at Ezmè.

Food at Ezmè

The growing demand for high quality and inspired Mediterranean foods inspired the Ezmè menu. Ezmè is dedicated to the concept of healthier living with truly deep flavors.

The heritage of Ottoman cuisine, can be best described as a fusion and refinement of Central AsianMiddle Eastern and Balkan cuisines. Ezmè is hoping to be the favorite spot for people seeking delicious, ethnic and healthy Turkish cuisine with a signature wine selection.

Our mezès consist of the freshest and highest quality fruits, herbs, vegetables and meats. We use premium olive oil and no animal fats so our fine foods are better for you. Each dish is carefully prepared to give our diners small home-style cooked plates that are big on taste but low in saturated fats and calories.
