L'autre

Look up or you’ll miss this intimate French-italian bistro in Hamra and the chance to impress your date with your savy inside knowledge of the secrets of Beirut!

This is a place you’ll likely stumble into and wonder about on a leisurely stroll in Hamra; a place whose name your friend-in-the-know will whisper to you fearing others would overhear; the quintessential anti-self-promotion place and that’s how we like it. Located in one of the oldest houses remaining in Makhoul, L'Autre combines tradition and trend. Known as the “Mokhtar house/office” for many generations (loosely translated into the “mayor”), the location is a historical landmark in the neighborhood and is deeply rooted in its collective memory. Go up the stairs and peak through the window to discover the space within. The intimate bistro is divided into three rooms and a terrace, each with its own character and mood; all seemingly intended to offer a unique ambiance and dining experience. With a wide selection of Lebanese wines chosen to complement their Mediterranean (read French-Italian) menu, L’Autre strives to offer a high-quality fare in a cozy environment. From their creamy mushroom risotto to their juicy poulet au miel (honey chicken), the only trouble you are likely to have is deciding on your order. Take your date on a night out or have lunch with your family and friends away from the hustle and bustle of main street Hamra. Just be sure to leave room for their homemade desserts.
