Kali’s Mezze is Kali’s Court’s sister restaurant. Like Kali’s Court, it is located in the heart of Baltimore’s famous Fell’s Point. Mezze specializes in traditional Mediterranean Cuisine, and has incredible ambiance. Located a stone’s throw from the water, the Mezze is settled amidst a busy area with plenty to do besides the dining. If you are there for the evening hours, you should find plenty of after-dinner activities, possible dancing at the newly renovated Kali’s Court.

This cocktail is Mezze’s play on the Old Fashion, one of my favorites, since I love bourbon. That said, I am always a little skeptical and nervous when someone has to play with the Old Fashioned. You know the saying “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. Since, fortunately, I have worked with Maryam before I gave her some latitude. It is exactly a fall fashion – the ingredients chosen for this signature cocktail blended with the Bulleit give it the perfect taste and color for a fall cocktail. It has just a little bite – the amount you would need on that fall day after raking leaves in forty degree weather when you need a little warmth.

Maryam Samadi is the creator of this signature cocktail and the lovely bartender in this video. Maryam has plenty of experience behind the bar and in the restaurant industry. She can make you some great cocktails and be very entertaining while doing it. If you are looking for a place with exceptional food, innovative drinks, and great service behind the bar, I suggest you stop in at Mezze.
