Despite the recent troubles the country has been facing, and the political instability which adds to the uncertainties about the future, Lebanon is a country with a lot to offer. Historically the country, due to its unique geographical position, and the many cultural influences left by the various conquerors throughout its history, has always been a melting pot of different ideas - be it religious, cultural and even culinary.
On my last visit to Lebanon I did experience some of these differences positively I might add, most notably through excellent places that offer everything your heart and wallet might fancy. I was largely pleased with many of these, but most impressed by Tribeca, a New York style restaurant.
The first thing that you notice about Tribeca is the atmosphere. It is a cozy little place that the moment you step in, you feel a welcoming and warm ambience. The walls are decorated by works of art by aspiring new artists, that I am told are for sale.
The food in Tribeca is mainly bagels & Ciabatta sandwiches and salads, with a choice of excellent desserts. But what is most impressive and something you rarely find in restaurants the world over, is how healthy and tasty it is.
The mood of the place is laid back, friendly, and has an intellectual air to it without being overbearing or stuffy.
