NeoMeze replaced Sol y Azul - a place I always liked going, although their quality declined over the years - a few years back. I went there with some friends a couple times at night but it wasn't my scene at all. I laughed with delight when I read Jonathan Gold's beautifully succinct description of NeoMeze's customers: "[their] neo-clubber clientele could be cast in a remake of A Night at the Roxbury."
I would still duck in every once in a while over the years, but never thought of it as a destination. The other night, though, Eliabeth and I were going out for a drink, wanting to do something different than we normally do, and I suggested we try NeoMeze. It turns out they have a happy hour seven days a week with some excellent bargains.
We enjoyed hanging out at NeoMeze and I made a mental note to return soon and try some more food. I would only have to wait a couple days.
"These are so good," Murph said, "that I don't even care that there is a container of ketchup on the plate." (Although Murph dislikes condiments of any kind, he has a particular hatred for ketchup. He once took a bite of a McDonald's cheeseburger that had ketchup on it and immediately threw up.)
I imagine I will continue to go to NeoMeze every once in a while at night when I'm in the mood for a drink somewhere outside of my normal routine, but I don't think it will become a regular dining spot for me. But I will gladly go back any afternoon for another bucket of those fries.
