A young girl on a long and lonely voyage, a beautiful stone house by the sea, and a book of fiercely guarded recipes. These are just some of the elements which compose the fascinating history of Mayrig restaurant.
Tucked away at the far end of Beirut's Gemayzeh quarter, Mayrig restaurant is an Armenian restaurant that adapts the popular classics of Armenian cuisine, while generously borrowing from Lebanese and other Mediterranean restaurant influences, in order to feast restaurant guests on a dazzling array of flavors.
The restaurant's "haven of dining perfection", as food critics have hailed the restaurant, uses spicy ingredients and dewy-fresh harvests from all over Lebanon, delicately hand-crafted creations, and a charming restaurant setting that still evokes Beirut's glory days.
Somehow, what you get at the restaurant is even more sublime than the sum of its parts…not surprising for a restaurant which still believes in serving food, and welcomes, very warm.
