More at Mez: Mez (210 E. Trade St., 704-971-2401) may be best known as the place that makes the tasty snacks to enjoy in EpiCentre’s movie theaters, but now the chic restaurant is offering a chef’s table with seating for fourteen and a view of the kitchen maestros at work. Chef Anoosh Shariat serves five tapas-style courses, starting at $50.
