Al Bustan Restaurant Review

: There might not be a more satisfying place for lamb, falafel, tabbouleh and the dips, salads and tangy cheeses of the Middle East than at this Lebanese restaurant. A lavish appetizer known as the Royal Meze comprises more than a dozen small plates, a meal for three or four tasters. From there, move on to a mixed grill of lamb, lamb sausage and chicken, or simply grilled fish. Al Bustan's Lebanese desserts are among the city's most unusual and recall the days when Beirut was the Paris of the Middle East.
