The Beirut Restaurant - PTC

Susan and I had dinner at The Beirut restaurant in Peachtree City about two weeks ago.  We went there with our good friends Jim and Mary Ann Macie.  Mary Ann can be seen in the picture below between the two umbrellas standing just out of the rain.  The metro Atlanta area has been under epic thunderstorm conditions for about a month.  It has literally rained every day for the past four weeks and frankly, we are sick of it!

The small but well patronized restaurant is located in a retail space near the Target department store.  My cycling friends would say it's located near the Peachtree City Trek bike shop.  In fact, Susan and I learned of the restaurant from some of our cycling friends.

We all opted for the popular La Grande - Lebanese Style dinner which was served family style.  It featured salad, falafel, lebanee, hummus, sautéed mushrooms, baba ghannouj, stuffed veggie grape leaves, spicy potatoes, and fried cauliflower.  The shish kabob (beef), shish tawook (chicken), and shish kafta (lamb) were served later on a separate platter.

So, The Beruit was really good.  The owner, Hadi Rabai, and the staff were knowledgeable and attentive.  The food was flavorful but not so different from "American" fare that it might be off-putting.

I'm sure that we'll be back!

Thanks for reading.
