If you're craving Mediterranean flavors check out MAMO in SoHo, the transatlantic sister to Cannes film festival go-to restaurant MAMO Le Michelangelo, two decades old French Riviera staple and a favorite among movie stars and socialites alike. MAMO, the younger SoHo sibling, is run by Italian restaurateur Mike “Mamo” Mammoliti (son of MAMO Le Michelangelo’s Herve Mammoliti) and maintains the same authentic feel and dedication to Provençal flavors as its Antibes namesake. Just like MAMO Le Michelangelo, MAMO attracts a wide array of celebrities, including Joe Jonas, Sophie Turner, Rhianna, Magic Johnson, Alexander Wang, Diane Kruger, Samuel L. Jackson, Gigi Hadid, Beyonce and Jay Z.

 

MAMO offers diners traditional southern Italian/French cuisine in an intimate yet elegant setting. The bi-level restaurant includes a casual lounge on the ground floor and a formal dining room upstairs. Both spaces capture the Riviera’s “sense of home” with original family photos and oversized vintage movie posters. The decor also incorporates classic New York-inspired touches such as exposed brick walls.

 

For winter, MAMO invites diners to enjoy a three-course prix fixe lunch for only $28 Monday to Sunday. Starters include new menu items such as Salmone Crudo made with raw salmon, avocado, cucumber, apple and lime; Crostone Parma with prosciutto di parma, mozzarella and olives;  Insalata di Pollo, a salad of chicken, lettuce, carrots, cherry tomato, parmesan and crispy bacon; and Caprese with burrata and tomatoes.

 

Main courses range from new seasonal menu options like Rigatoni al ragu (Rigatoni pasta with “ragu” sauce), Spaghetti al Pomodoro (spaghetti with tomato sauce), Branzino (roasted branzino with olive oil and mashed potatoes), and Pollo alla Milanese (chicken Milanese style with arugula salad and a mustard and tomato dip); to classics, such as Pizza Margherita.

 

To finish off the lunch on a sweet note, diners can choose from MAMO’s delicious desserts, such as the classic Tiramisu, Poached Pears, the untraditional Affogato with strawberries, and the Cheesecake alla Lavanda (lavender cheesecake).

 

To complement the flavorful dishes, MAMO also boasts an impressive cocktail menu from which diners can enjoy specialty cocktails such as the MAMO Negroni, the MAMO Spritz and their one-of-a-kind Truffle Martini. In addition to the cocktail program, MAMO also has an extensive wine list of carefully selected French and Italian wines to complement the cuisine.
