When the weather’s nice, you can sit outside at Meme and live the West-Village life you’ve always wanted. The dining room is a little small, but there's more outdoor seating than you'd expect. The menu is Mediterranean in a very broad sense, with Moroccan, Greek, and Italian influences, and there are options that should appeal to any sort of diner. The prices here are affordable (especially for the West Village), and this is overall a nice-looking place to have a casual dinner or an outdoor brunch with friends. Meme isn’t a destination restaurant, but if all you need is somewhere to eat some pretty-good food while you catch up with friends, it’s a solid choice.
