Welcome to Mezze on the River

Mezze On The River (MOTR) is a new Mediterranean-inspired Waterfront Haute Dining concept from Merchants Hospitality. Situated directly on the water in the Battery Park section of Manhattan, diners will experience a fresh take on Greek and seafood dishes created by Executive Chef Antelmo Ambrosio.

Inspired by a trip to Oia, Santorini, MOTR is a unique and exciting addition to the Downtown restaurant scene serving shareable mezze plates in addition to fresh seafood and picturesque seasonal cocktails curated by a dedicated mixology team. 

The restaurant boasts two outdoor terraces with direct Hudson River views in addition to indoor seating with floor-to-ceiling windows, giving diners an unobstructed view of the passing sailboats and yachts leaving the nearby North Cove Marina.

Expect a colorful and energetic atmosphere at Mezze On The River with a vibe reminiscent of trips to the Mediterranean and Miami according to Abraham Merchant, owner of MOTR, "There is something special about dining on the water which takes people away from the daily NYC grind and creates an atmosphere conducive to sharing which we plan to highlight with our menu offerings around".
