From the heart of Beirut comes a unique new Lebanese concept in the dining industry – a trend-setter offering traditional Lebanese food with a drizzle of novelty and modernization, setting itself apart from other conventional Lebanese restaurants.
Pink neon lights, swirly lollipops and a lit-up globe greet guests at the door. First-timers may find Laziz to be visually confusing yet never boring on the eyes. Kitsch wallpaper collage plaster portions of this interesting mish-mash of a restaurant; Laziz makes reference to a nostalgic past while embracing a trendy modern aesthetic.
Owned by the Boubess Group, Laziz invites Lebanese-food enthusiasts to enjoy their plat-du-jours and local dishes in a one-size-fits all casual atmosphere. For example, swing by on a Tuesday for the Chicken Moughrabieh (chicken with chickpeas) or on a Thursday for the Koussa Warak Enab (meat-and-rice stuffed grape leaves).
A generous selection of hot and cold mezza make for excellent group platters to be shared and enjoyed by all. Their filling selection of meats straight of the grill cozied up beside a side of vegetables and crispy fries can satisfy a growling appetite.
Notorious as an narguileh hot spot, smokers can order their favorite charcoal flavor and kick back with a piping shisha. If you’re sensitive to smoke, you may want to bear that in mind before choosing to sit indoors.
You may instead choose to sit on their outdoor porch which looks onto the busy hustle and bustle of Hamra where you can appreciate the city as it rushes past while you enjoy your meal.
