Meza Mediterranean Deli in Houghton has closed. The proprietor of some of the most tasty hummus around since 1993 was seen on Wednesday packing up all of the fixtures, chairs and tables. The once cheery little restaurant across the street from Starbucks now sits empty. All that remains of Meza is mural on the wall. There no plans to reopen elsewhere.
Meze received generally excellent reviews from customers and it gained a reputation for good food at reasonable prices. One Yahoo Travel reviewer wrote, "They are so good! The hummus is the best I have ever had. They also have the most wonderful Falafel, that comes served with a couscous-type salad. Their baklava is excellent, too."
Meza served Kirklanders for 19 years. They will be missed.

Thank you to Carl Bryant for the heads up.
