Industry power couple Colin and Heather Lynch, along with partner Jefferson Macklin, welcome their first restaurant, Bar Mezzana, to Boston’s South End neighborhood. After a more than 30 years of operating Barbara Lynch’s internationally renowned restaurants, the team’s spirited journey brings the simplicity and beauty of coastal Italian cooking to a sleek, vibrant space at 360 Harrison Avenue. Aperol spritzes, an award-winning crudo menu, and a career steeped in pasta making are highlighted by genuine, warm service and hospitality.

Led by Heather Lynch and Beverage Director Ryan Lotz, Bar Mezzana’s wine program showcases a thoughtfully curated selection of varietals to pair with Chef Lynch’s food, with both widely loved bottles and lesser-known (but equally enjoyable) discoveries. A collaboration between bar veterans Ryan Lotz and Jenna Rycroft, the cocktail list displays a similar synergy with the food. Largely inspired by the seasons and traditional Italian cocktails, the list includes what the team deems the perfect Negroni, the perfect Spritz, a handful of seasonal cocktails, and a selection of amari.
