At long last — Mezeh is open for business in Leesburg

Just a follow up to our story the other day announcing that Mezeh Mediterranean Grill was scheduled to officially open today — Friday, March 29. We can confirm it has happened. We saw it with our own eyes.

It’s happy news to fans of the brand that have been waiting and watching for more than two years since The Burn first reported on the plans.

This afternoon, early adapters turned out in big numbers to give the new restaurant at the Shops at Compass Creek a try.

Today is just a soft opening. The official grand opening is next Thursday, April 4 and Mezeh fans know what that means.

To celebrate, the restaurant will be giving out a free bowl with the purchase of a drink.

The special grand opening deal — something they do at all their locations — is valid from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on that day.
