SquareMeal Review of
Given the seasonal influx of Middle Eastern residents hereabouts, it’s hardly surprising that there are plenty of eateries designed with them in mind – although this friendly Lebanese was doing great trade before London became such a summer destination for the super-rich. Families dropping in for lunch and supper tend to take up most of the large terrace and ground floor, but the richly decorated alcoves downstairs are ideal for private dinners and liaisons. There’s a huge array of mezze to choose from, but their moutabal topped with pomegranate, and creamy hummus kawarmah with diced lamb and pine nuts get our vote. After that, progress to some charcoal-grilled kebabs or a home-style stew served with rice, before rounding off with a lip-sticking baklava. Though most customers stick to water and tea, there’s a decent wine list for those who want it.
