Mai­son Libanaise

HK Magazine - - DINING -

An­other open­ing from Black Sheep Restau­rants con­cep­tu­al­ized around a spe­cific place and mo­ment in time, Mai­son Libanaise takes us back to 1960s Beirut, with a three-story build­ing in SoHo burst­ing with color and vi­tal­ity. Chef James Har­ri­son shows his affin­ity with Mid­dle East­ern spices in the fla­vor-packed menu, de­liv­er­ing tongue-tin­gling dishes such as pan-fried hal­loumi with honey glaze and dates, roasted cau­li­flower with spicy harissa and fried chicken given an ex­otic bent with sumac and za’atar. The mezze starters and dips, from cumin­spiced baba ganoush to cool­ing lab­neh yo­gurt and earthy chick­pea hum­mus, have us hooked, and they’re per­fect for shar­ing over a few bot­tles of fra­grant Le­banese wine on the open rooftop ter­race.
