Mama Joon Brings Veg-Forward, Mediterranean Fare in a Chic Setting

Posted by Maryanne Salvat On November - 4 - 2019

Set in a beautiful atrium with a backyard waterfront patio on the Collins Canal, Mama Joon features vegetarian-forward, homestyle Mediterranean cuisine with a strong Lebanese influence.

Located in the sprezzatura atrium of the hotel, Mama Joon is a refreshingly inviting, family-style restaurant that draws inspiration from the Lebanese background of Life House Founder and CEO, Rami Zeidan. When creating the menu for Mama Joon, Rami sat with his stepmom, who is like a mother to him, and handpicked some of their favorite family recipes. The new recipes, now with a Miami twist, came to life collaboratively with the local culinary team, Executive Chef Harry Capacetti from Matador Room and Bar and Restaurant Director, Hakien Pagan, from the EDITION Hotel at the helm.

“We take great pride in creating and delivering on elegant, high quality food and drinks, and seek to serve the people, not just the elite. We’re really excited to partner with Rami and the Life House team to make Mama Joon an accessible experience,” said Chef Capacetti.

From the same brand that brought Miami Life House, Little Havana and Cuban-inspired Parcela Cafe, Mama Joon continues to showcase the brand’s refreshingly authentic and creative approach through the development of another locally inspired restaurant and bar.
