Wassef & Racha Haroun are the owners of Mamnoon, Manoon Street and Mbar. This is their proprietor story:

"Over the years we’ve expressed our cultures through a variety of ways, but the highest impact by far was when Racha prepared Lebanese, Syrian or Persian food and served at our dinners and parties. Our friends recall the visceral delicious sensations generated by eating the foods, taking in the smells and sights. There is a direct correlation between a positive visceral stimulus with an unfamiliar context, resulting in this context being familiarized in a very positive way. This was the “aha” moment for us and the start of the mission –  to be a progressive beacon that the local culture can be proud of." (Wassef Haroun)
