Mamey by Niven Patel

A Caribbean-influenced, island-minded eatery in Coral Gables serving up tapas-style plates from the James Beard nominated chef.

Mamey’s menu combines ideas from the cuisines of island nations with an emphasis on the Caribbean. Named for the tropical fruit native to Cuba and Central America - Mamey is a departure from Patel's other establishments,  including the award-winning Ghee. 

The concept is inspired by Patel's travels throughout Asia, Polynesia, Thailand, and the Caribbean and features an eclectic array of dishes with inspiration from Asia, Polynesia, and the Caribbean - with plenty of produce from Patel’s own two-acre Homestead farm, Rancho Patel.  Expect playful, bright-flavored food with dishes such as Bahamian conch fritters, corn and callaloo empanadas, Creole mahi and Brussels sprout pad Thai. The restaurant offers ample outdoor dining and takeout nightly.
