Minaâ€™s Mediterraneo brings a variety of Middle Eastern treats to Miamiâ€™s Upper East Side. The menu built on authentic family recipes from Egyptian-born owner, Yasmine Kotb, reflects a wide range of Middle Eastern, Italian, Greek, French, Turkish and North African flavors in their newly opened garden patio.
They have a Middle Eastern brunch on Saturdays and Sundays has been dubbed â€œBest Brunchâ€ by Miami New Times, brimming with exotic breakfasts like marscapone pancakes and mergez benedicts and shashuka along with classic French croque madame. Some of the favorites are the Besara, a ground fava bean dip served with house made pitas served straight from the oven and stuffed cabbage with rice and meat and onions in a tomato sauce and the main course was moussaka, a baked eggplant layered with potato and bÃ©chamel and beef ragout. So yummy!
The garden patio is beautiful during their Saturdayâ€™s in the Garden live music series featuring local talent, starting every Saturday at 8 PM. It is a great place to have a house dip and an eclectic brew or yummy cocktail while relaxing on the patio with friends. They have a weekday happy hours. You can dine in their loft-like space filled with travel posters and with lots of benches and daydreaming that youâ€™re in a Greek taverna or a Moroccan cafÃ©.
This Upper East Side restaurant is a fun place to spend an evening in the garden while eating and drinking with friends. The staff is helpful and attentive offering suggestions. #MinasMiami @MinasMiami
