About Moona Restaurant:
Moona is the first collaboration between seasoned industry alums and restauranteurs, Mohamad El Zein and Radouan Ouassaidi. The word “moona” or “mouneh” in slang comes from the Arabic word mana or ma’oona, meaning “storing,” or the equivalent of “pantry.” Historically, the moona was prepared during the bountiful harvest for consumption during winter’s harsh days. It provided fundamental nourishment for the daily meal and transformed perishable produce into food with a long shelf life.
Located at 243 Hampshire Avenue in Cambridge, Massachusetts’ Inman Square, Moona is an intimate 30-seat Eastern Mediterranean-inspired restaurant that specializes in hot and cold mezzas (small plates) by integrating local sourced seasonal ingredients with house made aromatic spices, dried herbs and jams from their own house-made pantry.” For more information please call Moona at (617) 945-7448 or visit www.moonarestaurant.com.
