Mezze – a new Syrian restaurant close to us

This the most encouraging Lisbon story I’ve read in a long time…

Agree!

Start-up is important. So are big international events such as Web Summit. It not only attracts business & promotes Lisbon And even you sometimes doubt it tourism is good too.

But the new Mezze that just opened in Arroios Mercado (the coolest food part of Lisbon right now) is at least as important as the above business, events and Industries.

Why?

Because it shows that it’s still possible to find European cities with a human approach to refugees – Like Lisbon where Mezze is one of the first restaurants we have seen in a very long time that welcomes refugees.
