The name is derived from the old French word “Mes” which is a portion of food, and portions here, are meant to be shared. Expounding on the social eating trend, The Mess delivers astounding plates in a homely yet stylish environment, that never cease to amaze.
Must haves on the sharing menu include squid and chorizo (charred baby squid, chorizo sausage, ponzu glaze, pineapple and red pepper salsa) and the Chefs recommendation, Beef tataki (seared angus beef tenderloin, ponzu dressing, mooli & cucumber salad). The service is attentive, yet low-key, allowing you full enjoyment of your company, the food and the extensive wine line list. This venue has established itself as a go-to spot for pre-theatre meals and drinks, as well as just generally being a damn great meal in a beautiful environment.
