Lebanon is full of concept cafes, fusion food and innovative ideas, the latest of which opened Saturday evening at the Phoenicia Hotel in Downtown Beirut. Around 200 people attended the first night of "Aal Lebnani" (the Lebanese way), a modernized Lebanese menu in the hotel's Mosaic restaurant. The chefs created a delicious mixture of fresh Sajj, a live-cooking kibbeh station, and an eclectic mix of international food, said Thomas Figovc, executive chef at Mosaic.Even the drinks menu hoisted the Lebanese flag with nationalist cocktails like the Beirutini and the Red Lebanese – vodka mixed with Lebanese arak or rose water. For those who like to use alcohol to mix their cocktails there was even a Beerak – a mix of beer and arak.Aal Lebnani is hosted every Saturday at the Mosaic restaurant of the Phoenicia Hotel, Ain al-Mreisseh.
