About Us

We bring you a little piece of France

Our History

My culinary experience led me to learn about high-end Lebanese cuisine first in Lebanon before transitioning to “la Ferme St Simon” in Paris where I learned about French Cuisine.

Upon arriving to NYC and working for the likes of Mamlouk and Moustache restaurants… the idea of recreating a modern Lebanese restaurant dawned on me; one that would take the concept of the French Bistro with its delicious food and fun atmosphere and apply it to Lebanese cuisine. So, I started experimenting with Lebanese & French techniques that led us to create a unique offering of Lebanese/French & Moroccan dishes.

Excellent various menu

Our chef recommends the Lamb Tagine as well as the Ouzi.
The Lamb tagine comes with caramelized prunes. It is a delicious combination of sweet and sour flavors, a special characteristic of Moroccan dishes.
The Ouzi is another favorite. It combines sautéed vegetables, caramelized onions with chicken tenderloin and basmati rice served in filo pastry. A must try.
