A Culinary Journey

The Menu

Each dish at Meduza Mediterrania is a canvas, painted with the vibrant colors and flavors of the Mediterranean. Freshness is the cornerstone here, evident in every crunch of locally sourced vegetables. Our chefs are artisans, handpicking each ingredient to ensure peak flavor.

The dinner menu sets the stage. With dishes ranging from a classic vegetarian falafel with chickpeas, hummus, tabbolueh, and Israeli salad, to a roasted lobster with red yuzu kosho-vierge, charred lemon, garlic butter, we have something for everyone.

Seafood lovers will find their haven in dishes like the Grilled Octopus, charred to perfection, it's a twist of texture and taste, elevated by a drizzle of lemon-infused olive oil. The half-shell oysters with diced olive and shallots, cilantro, lime, and chili-infused olive oil are another great option.

And what would a world-class, eclectic Mediterranean restaurant be without pasta? Take our Lobster Linguini, for instance. Each strand of pasta is a vehicle for the rich, creamy sauce, punctuated by generous chunks of lobster.

The Cocktails

The bar at Meduza Mediterrania is where mixology meets performance art. Each cocktail is a mini spectacle of dry ice and flavor, designed to engage more than just your taste buds.

The "Meet Me in Mykonos" transports you straight to a beachside bar in Greece. It's a refreshing blend of gin, cucumber, and mint, served in a glass rimmed with Mediterranean sea salt.

And our Amalfi lemon & rosemary transports you to the sun-kissed Italian Riviera with every sip. Vodka, dry vermouth, sel gris, preserved lemon brine, and rosemary lemon oil are the ingredients that send your culinary journey to new heights.

Favorites so far with our patrons

The "Blue Fin & Caviar" is the dish that has everyone talking. A luxurious mound of tuna tartare is crowned with a generous dollop of caviar, each bite a symphony of flavors.

And the "Pistachio Crusted Salmon" is another crowd-pleaser. The nutty crust provides a delightful contrast to the tender salmon, making each bite a textural marvel.


The dessert menu is a fitting finale to the Meduza Mediterrania experience. The "Olive Oil Cake" is a revelation, moist and rich, yet surprisingly light.

And our "Wild Berry Butter Cake" is a textural masterpiece. The feuilletine crumble adds a delightful crunch, perfectly complementing the soft, buttery cake.

Meduza Mediterrania’s menu awaits you in the heart of New York, promising a feast that tantalizes all your senses.
