General manager Michael Strati wants everyone to know that Meridian 54 in Canton is open. A few weeks ago, Meridian’s phone was temporarily disconnected, raising questions about the status of the restaurant. The phone problem was a fluke, Strati said.
The restaurant is also tweaking its menu with affordable, under-$20 dishes that will be more Italian-inspired. "We’re leaning toward more neighborhood fare," he said. (This seems to be a trend among restaurants these days.)
There also will be $19 prix-fixe specials, featuring items like New York strip steak, and crab-cake deals on Wednesdays for $11.95. Brunch continues on Saturdays and Sundays with unlimited mimosas, sangria, and bloody Marys.
Formerly called Red Fish, Meridian opened about a year ago. We’re glad to know the restaurant remains viable.
