NYC-based hospitality powerhouse group, GPG Hospitality, introduces a brand-new Modern Middle Eastern concept to the city of Miami with Mazeh. The restaurant officially opened its doors to the public on July 15th and brought a casual modern Middle Eastern experience to the vibrant Downtown Miami dining scene. With a relaxed yet refined ambiance, Mazeh’s unparalleled culinary approach will extend a unique modern flair to traditional Middle Eastern cuisine and introduce Middle Eastern tapas to the world.
Mazeh: An Authentic Middle Eastern Tapas Restaurant
Mazeh radiates the warmth of Middle Eastern hospitality as Miami’s newest culinary gem. The service style at Mazeh breaks the mold of a traditional dining experience and invites guests to pace the meal as they wish, ordering small dishes throughout the night while enjoying an evening out. The menu at Mazeh draws from the diverse and flavorful cuisine of the Middle East. Its offerings provide guests with an authentic taste of the region while highlighting the fresh local fare of Miami. The flavors of the Middle East are applied to these tapas in a way that respects and allows the main ingredient to shine.
Signature dishes include Arayes, ground lamb, or fish grilled inside the fresh pita and topped with amba; Falafel Cigars wrapped in brick pastry and served with tahini; Skewers: grilled octopus with labneh and za’atar; grilled steak in a smoked tomato sauce and bone marrow olive vinaigrette; grilled cabbage with green tahini and herb gremolata; and of course Mazeh’s specialty Tiffin Box which holds an assortment of seasonal Middle Eastern dips and spreads served with fresh pita.
The drinks at Mazeh are crafted to enhance the experience further and elevate the flavors of the tapas. Cocktails include the You Oughta Know, a mix of vodka, Lillet Rouge, grapefruit, dill, and honey; Doo Wop, made with silver rum, kaffir lime, passion fruit, lemongrass, and lavender; and the Hypnotize, a vodka-based drink mixed with bergamot, smoked pineapple, and grapefruit.
In the morning, Mazeh offers a selection of breakfast boards. The boards include the Greek Breakfast, which includes eggs, Greek salad, tzatziki, feta, and Kalamata olives; a traditional English Breakfast which includes eggs, baked beans, turkey bacon and sausage, tomato, and hash browns; a Continental Breakfast, featuring a selection of bread and viennoiserie; and the Middle Eastern Breakfast with eggs, Israeli salad, labneh, avocado, and tahini.
Along with the opening of Mazeh, the team is excited to announce the opening of Float, an elevated outdoor lounge, later this year.
Mazeh is located at 227 NE 2nd Street at Yotel Miami. Mazeh is open Monday – Saturday from 7 AM – 12 AM and Sunday from 7 AM – 10 PM. For more information and reservations, visit www.mazehmiami.com.
