Enter a small success story: “SUD”, a restaurant settled in the heart of Mar Mikael in a courtyard with the touch of a small Mediterranean village. Michel Yazbeck has transformed a deserted location, composed of old houses in poor condition, into a small rustic gem.
This young entrepreneur, who came from the domain of hotel management, was dreaming of opening a small unpretentious restaurant, where it would be pleasant to meet up, share a meal, and have a drink. In short, a kitchen that would go together with conviviality. With the help of his sister, the young chef Rita Yazbeck who worked during 4 years in Paris with Alain Ducasse in most of his French restaurants, they created a menu reflecting their own image: genuine, generous and warm.
Following the outstanding success of SUD Mar Mikhael, Michel Yazbeck just launched SUD in Dbayeh, along with 2 new signatures: La Petite Table a French bistrot and Heights a classic bar. The 3 new venues are part of Gardens, a new cluster on the old Dbayeh road (under the Naccache bridge).
SUD Dbayeh, which offers the same menu as the original restaurant, serves lunch and dinner. The pastries produced by Charles Azar boast their traditional touch, combining flavors and textures to provide an unforgettable experience. The same applies to the bakery and sweet breads, which are kneaded and prepared according to traditional fermentation techniques, which remain secrets dearly protected by the Chef.
LA PETITE TABLE is a small restaurant which is extremely rich in details. Its chef and founder, Rita Yazbeck has created a menu which relies on seasonal produce, and fresh ingredients, as well as the richness of the Lebanese soil and the experience of the artisan/producer who knows his ground well. With the olive oil, fish, fruits and vegetables among others, the menu is rather a genuine tribute to the sun, sea and land. A kitchen of pure delicacy, reflecting the image of its chef, all in all served with a real attention to detail, bearing the legacy of her experience in major gastronomic houses. It is a real celebration for the eyes and palate.
HEIGHTS. is an architectural concept in itself, overlooking the other two restaurants. Welcome to our restaurant bar, suspended on a 13-meter height, perched on a post with a 360-degree panoramic view, consisting of a circular platform surrounded with glass.
The Asian-influenced menu is designed with a full sharing concept in mind, in addition to the mini burgers with fresh tuna. Here, you will enjoy various Japanese seasonings: sesame oil, soy sauce, yuzu mayonnaise (A citrus which rules the Japanese cuisine) and ponzu sauce.
