Just opened: An Italian restaurant with an ocean view. That’s new, even for Beirut.
Popolo is the new Italian place in town. If you’re like any salt –of-the-earth Lebanese, you should be hooked by now. We should have had you at “new”. You see, there’s something about an opening that drives the Lebanese a little crazy. The novelty, the excitement, the unknown, the bragging rights earned when you’re in-the-know…whatever the reason, we flock to all things new. Based on the above-argued premise, Popolo is sure to be the talk of the town this summer. The place is self-described as Beirut’s only revisionist Italian kitchen with an awe-inspiring seated terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. We can certainly vouch for the view.
Located along the renowned Beirut boardwalk, on the shores of its finest beaches, Popolo promises to bring a new concept of Italian cuisine to the Lebanese capital. The brainchild of ADDMIND, the management group behind renowned concepts like White, Iris and Caprice among others, the restaurant is intended to be an Italian kitchen designed to blend unique European historic features with authentic Italian pizzas, giving the place an identity of its own. If these previous babies are any indication, this one should be good.
Expect a menu that is a product of a tradition of rustic eating rather than just rarefied high-cooking; the majority of dishes are based on meat, poultry and fish, with fresh produce, imported from Italy for the most part.
The team behind Popolo includes key innovators in the hospitality industry, who embody the Italian spirit and culture, who are on a mission to personally take Italian food enthusiasts on a journey inside Popolo’s unique cuisine
