Our Family

      The Phoenician Garden Mediterranean Bar and Grill is a family-owned and operated restaurant proudly run by the Hmaidan family, consisting of Mounir (Mo), his wife Bebe, their son Tarek, and daughter Lana.
      Mo's passion for cooking and love for making people happy stems from his childhood in Lebanon, where he worked in a Mediterranean restaurant and discovered his love for the cuisine. He honed his skills in Los Angeles by working in a Greek restaurant and a lobster house, before opening his first diner in Turlock, California. However, he moved to the Fresno area to be closer to family and opened a Mediterranean restaurant in downtown Fresno.
     In 2003, Mo realized his dream of creating a unique restaurant concept and opened The Phoenician Garden Mediterranean Bar and Grill. With a focus on presentation and taste, Phoenician Garden serves classic Mediterranean dishes with a few American twists, and Mo continues to innovate and create new dishes that embody the best of Mediterranean cuisine.

Culinary Legacy

The Phoenicians were known not only for their skilled seafaring and shipbuilding, but also for their delicious cuisine. With their expertise in marine science, they made contributions such as dividing a circle into 360 degrees and having reliable celestial reference points. These ancient mariners also developed treasured recipes that were renowned throughout their land. At Phoenician Garden, we pay homage to their culinary heritage by reviving these recipes and bringing these authentic dishes to your table. Indulge in the taste of the ancient Phoenicians and experience a journey through time with every bite.
