South Beach has a new Mediterranean restaurant called Mama Joon.
Mama Joon is located at the new Life House Hotel in Collins Park. On the menu, you could find vegetable-centric items and classic Mediterranean dishes with a Miami twist. The menu is inspired from the Lebanese background from Life House CEO, Rami Zeidan. Half of the menu is vegetarian or vegan.
Some of those classic menu items include labneh, chili feta, and tabbouleh served alongside traditional Turkish and Lebanese flatbreads, bazlama, and za’atar-spiced manoushe.
In the morning, Mama Joon will serve tea and coffee at Mama’s Cafe in the hotel lobby and at night, the cafe space will become Mama’s Bar featuring drinks such as low-alcohol spritzers inspired by the Mediterranean coast and containing ingredients such as falernum, kaffir lime, and herb-infused mastika.

Mama Joon is located at 2216 Park Avenue in Miami Beach inside the Life House Collins Park.
