Updated November 19, 2020

Proclamation presented April 23, 2012 to Mezza Mediterranean Grill at Cerritos City Council Chambers.

Mezza Mediterranean Grill

The Jessa family opened Mezza Mediterranean Grill in Cerritos on January 15, 2012. The menu consists of Mediterranean staples such as marinated kabobs, homemade hummus and baba ganouj, and a variety of fresh salads. Head chef Najwa Massoud was born and raised in the mountains of Lebanon.

Upon entering the restaurant patrons will feel as if they are in the Mediterranean region. The first thing guests will notice is a large window inviting them to watch the cooks carefully preparing each meal. The décor is a mixture of traditional artwork mixed with modern styles. The room is completed by a beautiful bar featuring wines from around the world.

Mezza Mediterranean Grill owner Jake Jessa is excited about the opportunity to operate a business in Cerritos and is looking forward to cultivating a long relationship with the community.

“We sincerely thank the City of Cerritos for the opportunity to be the Spotlight business this month. Anything we can do to contribute to the city or schools within the city we would be more than happy to!”
—Jake Jessa, Mezza Mediterranean Grill owner

Mezza Mediterranean Grill is located at 11435 South Street, Cerritos, CA 90703 in the Cerritos Promenade shopping center. Call the restaurant at (562) 860-8818 or visit
