In Lebanon, on any given weekend, when a group of friends or family meet over the dinner table, no matter what social class they belonged to, they always managed to share a bottle of Arak over a few Mezza dishes to be followed by a mix grill platter.

At TarBoush Lebanese Bistro & Bar, we have taken upon ourselves the task of reproducing those dishes, recreating those moments, with a genuine hospitality and warmth of our family restaurant. We ask you to relax in your seat and allow us to offer you our best in three choices of banquet in the hope you would create your own memories to share for generations to come.
