The word “moona” or “mouneh” in slang comes from the Arabic word mana or ma'oona, meaning "storing." In other words, it’s the English equivalent of the “pantry.”  In the past, especially in remote villages in the Arab World, the moona was prepared during the bountiful harvest for consumption during winter's harsh days, providing fundamental nourishment for the daily meal, having transformed perishable produce into food with a long shelf life. Things such as olives, pickles, preserved lemons, cheese, spices, herbs, jams, etc. Moona cherishes the culinary tradition of nourishment, sustenance and purity in the Arabic and Eastern Mediterranean tradition. Dishes will be served in a sharable format.

Moona leaves you elated, and wanting more
— Boston Globe
This intimate Inman Square Eastern Mediterranean makes great use of housemade spices, dried herbs and jams (also packaged for sale) to brighten every bite of its hot and cold mezze, as well as mains like Cornish hen tagine. Lively mosaic tiles and copper accents complete the transporting meal.
— ZAGAT
The grilled whole fish is a ‘showstopper.
