Maman Joon (Persian) opened in Tenleytown, Check out the Menu

4531 Wisconsin Ave, NW

Back in April we learned that Maman Joon, Mom’s Kitchen Real Persian Kabob was coming to the former Beefsteak space next to Crisp and Juicy. You can now take a taste.

Check out the menu here.

“Here at Maman Joon, our philosophy is simple – food should be authentic, well-crafted, and delicious. We practice this in everything we create, from our homemade yogurts to our fresh-baked breads.

As for the restaurant’s name, the word Maman means “mom” and the word Joon means “soul, spirit of life.” Used in a modern day to mean “dear”, as a gesture of close kinship and hospitality.

So all together Maman Joon, means DEAR MOM!

Food is the language through which mom best knows how to express herself. Maman Joon is a place for family and friends to come together. You’re welcome to meet us there.

Mom’s food, Made with love!”
