Mama Joon is a Mediterranean restaurant in the Life House Hotel in South Beach. The menu includes a lot of vegetables and seafood, and it’s all pretty mediocre - with roasted butternut squash that needs more time in the oven and slightly rubbery halloumi. But we could see ourselves coming back here to sit in the backyard - which is right on a pretty little canal - and drink Mama Joon’s very good spritz. Just treat this place more as a drinks-and-a-light-bite place than a bonafide dinner spot.
