Al Mankal-Cuisine Lebanese



Dine à la Lebanese in elegant surroundings, perhaps with a view of the Eiffel Tower.

Antoine selected a 2013 Lebanese red from Clos de Cana (Cabernet sauvignon, grenache, syrah, censault)-a bad year in Bordeaux (too much rain) but in sun-filled Lebanon, no problem. We allowed him to select a mezza that included hummous, fromage blanc with basil, keftah and crunchy, tart, taboulleh.


Everything was freshly made and we had an endless supply of pita for dipping and filling-everything we expected and more.



This is a restaurant that provokes sharing so we asked Antoine to prepare a mixed grill of lamb, chicken and kefta.





And, of course, a sweet dessert and mint tea.
