Asian in Beirut

Beirut's love affair with all things Asian is elevated to new heights (and prices) with this new small plates fusion lounge-restaurant. Inventive cocktails feature Asian herbs and spices like yuzu and shiso; the small plates (including sous vide beef short ribs and cumin lamb) are unique in Beirut. The red lighting, evocative of an Amsterdam X-rated show, is a strange choice.
