From London to Dubai and now Lebanon, Mourad Mazouz, the famed restaurateur of Sketch in London, the 404 and Derrière in Paris, brings a new and fresh outlook on the Beirut restaurant scene with his newest venture, Momo at the Souks.
From the Souks, you will immediately notice the warm light emanating from the lanterns in the gardens on the second floor. If you have a coat or a jacket, surrender it to the impressive dry-cleaning rack smartly set overhead. Take the elevator up.
The restaurant is a blend of elegance and style. Designed by Annabel Kassar, it is adorned with hand-painted walls depicting flowers and exotic birds. The ceiling is an origami of planes that fold and meet at angles in a very unique and original way.
Opposite the restaurant, you will find the café-bar that serves French, Moroccan, Lebanese mezze from midday to midnight and afternoon tea. At night, the bar serves some of the best cocktails in town with some original recipes to try.
