No need to wait for the clock to strike midnight to see its magical appearance, just drive to Trabaud Street in Achrafieh, where "La Posta" has its doors wide open all week through starting from noon (12 am) till its last customer.
As you reach "La Posta" and walk up the enchanted stairs, leading you to the restaurants entrance, a remarkable sight of an old villa, with a touch of eccentric Lebanese architecture, you find yourself in a beautiful big garden engulfing a fountain on your left, filled with lots of tables ready to seat you no matter if you're just two or up to twenty.
As you get seated the slight breeze lets you smell the fresh air carried from the greenery surrounding the garden, and just for a second you forget you're still in the middle of Beirut.
If you happen to arrive to "La Posta" on a Saturday, you're in for a delightful brunch, an open buffet for 35$ (no alcohol included) and 22$ for your kids or siblings.
If you happened to book a table on a Thursday you're there to enjoy the music of a live band (which is 15$ per entrance) plus with food and drinks "a la carte".
On any other weekday though "La Posta" doesn't lose its magic or hypnotizing touch, it invites you to its Italian "delicateses. "
Made for all Italian lovers, "La Posta" is always open and welcoming its "gourmets."
So dear Cinderella's and charming princes, reserve your tables and enjoy the tastiest Italian dishes, with all the romantic atmosphere there is to offer in the warm breezes of Beirut.
