Lebanese Liveliness: Maison Libanaise serves up Middle Eastern classics amidst a stylish space in the heart of Soho.
Look & Feel: Located in Soho’s nightlife scene, right next to the Central—Mid-Levels escalator, the two-storey space immediately grabs your attention with a wall mural on the side of the building. Slip past the take out counter on the ground floor and head up to the first floor for sit-down dining. Here, the colorful patterned tiles and arched windows evoke the fashionable stylings of 1960s Beirut.
On the Menu: Maison Libanaise offers plenty of sharing plates — mostly classic hot and cold mezze such as hummus shawarma ($88) and falafel ($118). There are a few more daring options as well, like sawda djej, which is pan-fried chicken liver ($128). A number of meat and vegetable-based mains are available, too, from eggplant moussaka ($148) to mashawi (a mix of char-grilled meats, $378). An extensive list of Lebanese wines complements the food.
Great For: Dinner with friends before a boozy night out, with plenty of sharing.
FYI: The rooftop is perfect for a casual alfresco meal. It can also be booked out for private events.
