Rumi is a modern Middle Eastern restaurant dedicated to promoting all things Eastern Mediterranean and beyond.

 Joseph Abboud opened Rumi restaurant with his wife Natalie in 2006 to critical acclaim and in 2011 opened The Moor's Head. 

We offer a menu based on traditional dining experiences in Lebanon where small to medium sized dishes are shared amongst the table. The food is authentic but done with a refined approach and a deft interpretation of a classic cuisine. The plate size encourages sharing in the traditional dining style of Lebanon.
