Lebanese restaurant in Paris

gravelgertie Dec 6, 2009 10:14 AM

Does anyone recommend a Lebanese restaurant in Paris? I found As du Falafel for quick take out, but I'm looking for a classic, sit down, dinner. Doesn't have to be fancy, casual is good. I want to take friends that have never eaten Lebanese before so I'd like to be able to just order a large assortment of mezze and pass plates!

    This site lists at least 3 that I've been to. http://gridskipper.com/62254/best-leb...

    Al Ajami is high end best hoummous I've ever had. Noura is very busy and good and affordable, the Pavillion is higher end. Rimal matches Noura.

    There are lesser known ones s/a Mont Liban on Batignolle that are good and casual. I think your friends will appreciate Noura, Rimal, or Mont Liban.

      I happen to be partial to Noura, in part because I can visit the boutique and schlep home another meal and desserts.

      Faubourg Saint Honoré, almost Place des Ternes, just by La Maison du Chocolat, is an excellent mid-range Lebanese called Naî. One of the very fancy Lebanese in town is Fakhr El Dine, on Longchamp @ Bouquet de Longchamp.

        We usually go to Rimal (near Parc Monceau) because it is near our apt., I have eaten at the Noura restaurants many times also. They have a catering business as well and have several venues, including a restaurant at the Institut du Monde Arabe. Both Noura and Rimal are very good. There is also Liza, a "modern" Lebanese restaurant in the rue de la Banque in the 2nd, near the Bourse, which has a good reputation.
