The kitchen at Maroosh Mediterranean Restaurant yields a menu of char-grilled specialty kebabs, seasoned meats, and 22 appetizers. Diners can recite incantations from the menu to summon starters such as moutabal baba gannouj or plates of three types of kibbeh served fried, baked, or raw. For main courses, flaming charcoals engulf skewered cubes of lamb and onion with savory heat for the Maroosh shish kebab, and scorch the peppercorns covering grilled sirloin steak. Indian spices dust the vegetable curry’s peas, carrots, and potatoes, as well as an optional add-on of chicken, lamb, beef, shrimp, or fish. The wine list comprises red and white shades, including La Crema’s pinot noir and Maso Canali’s pinot grigio, which diners can sip while watching belly-dancing performances on Friday and Saturday nights.
Maroosh Mediterranean Restaurant
There's a reason CBS Miami hails Maroosh Mediterranean Restaurant as one of the area's Top Spots for Middle Eastern Food—in fact, there are many. First and foremost is the food: everything from Lebanese and Armenian sausages to charcoal-grilled skewers of lamb and crispy falafel with sides of tahini. The chefs go the extra mile to make the meals as authentic as possible, too, pairing dishes with sides of homemade yogurt and topping their basmati rice with roasted almonds.
Yet when recreating the Middle East, Maroosh Mediterranean Restaurant doesn't just stop with the cuisine. The dining room's vibrant collection of pan-Mediterranean accents includes bright red and purple fabrics hanging from the ceiling, an ornate metal chandelier, and framed paintings of musicians and belly dancers. Those paintings even echo reality—the eatery invites belly dancers to perform for private parties, where they mesmerize families and re-inspire chiropractors who've lost their passion.
