Beirut: wineries, markets, bread
I will be in Beirut over Christmas and I would love recommendations especially for the following (more general recommendations on best restaurants also welcome, but saw previous postings got few replies):
- winery to visit. Massaya (http://www.massaya.com/) seems cool. Anybody been there? Other suggestions?
- I will have an apartment so I can do a bit of cooking and I love anyway to go to markets. Which ones do you recommend for best food? There is apparently now a farmers market--is that any good?
- I love all sorts of bread and baking. Any bakery (meaning baking bread, not pastry) that I should visit? I read about wood-fire ovens used for various types of flat breads and I would like to go to traditional ones and be able to talk to the bakers.
