Although the space was extensively renovated when the restaurant first opened, the intervening years had taken a bit of a toll, so Mesh has recently undergone extensive cosmetic work without significantly altering the layout. With numerous seating areas available both downstairs and up, guests can decide whether they would prefer to dine in romantic seclusion, enjoy the bustle of the constantly hopping bar area or experience the urban oasis of the patio beyond. In addition, three private dining rooms are available for parties or business gatherings. Now finished in contemporary earth tones and grays, the vast two-story space feels more intimate and welcoming than ever, a real achievement considering the restaurant's sheer size. In addition to the physical overhaul, the menu has undergone a few changes, too. Scaled back and more focused than before on freshness and seasonality, it is clear that a lot of thought has gone into each dish. "Our goal for the menu is to regain the feel we had in the beginning," explains Roberts. "e food now has grown up right alongside of me, and I'm really proud of the menu and how it has come together." Mesh's menu is strong on freshness and flavor, combining sophisticated technique and a lightness of touch, delivered with confidence and verve. Small plates are priced sensibly, and main courses are sufficiently generous to encourage sharing, which is definitely the way to go if you wish to experience all the pleasures this talented team has to offer. slmag.net 83
