our Standards

The MeJana Experience

1. Fresh Ingredients
Every morning we shop for a variety of locally grown vegetables, and we settle for nothing less than the freshest seafood and meats delivered to our door daily.
2. Spices and creativity
Lebanon is the land where the Mid-East meets the Mediterranean, and our spice blends will fill your senses with distinct aromas and fragrances from around the region.
3. Preparation ritual and marinations
Lebanese dishes are labor intensive. Our dishes are grilled, baked, or sautéed in olive oil until perfection.
4. Presentation and garnishment
Lebanese cuisine prepared at Me Jana is a form of culinary art that stays true to tradition. In Lebanese homes, dinner is a family undertaking, and we take the highest level of care to prepare and present our delicacies in the most authentic form.
