Venue says: "Al Bustan features private dining areas that cater to sophisticated tastes and sensibilities. Host your party or corporate event with us."

Middle Eastern fare has enjoyed something of a rebirth in recent years as internationally savvy consumers clamor for new takes on the millennia-old cuisine. But while some restaurateurs have responded by fusing global flavors into Levantine cuisine, Midtown stalwart Al Bustan has doubled down on the traditional Lebanese dishes it has been serving for over 20 years. Fitted with crystal chandeliers and an expansive bi-level dining area, the opulent restaurant sets a lavish stage for dozen-plate mezze dinners of classic fare by chef-owner Elias Ghafary.

Al Bustan says
For over 20 years, Al Bustan restaurant has been synonymous with Lebanese fine dining. Elias Ghafary executive chef/owner and Norman Hobeika /owner take the cuisine and culture of their homeland to the next level with a breathtaking restaurant that recalls Beirut’s standing as “the Paris of the Middle East.”

Al Bustan encapsulates the timeless elegance of Lebanon. The dramatic 150 seats dining room is the perfect backdrop for the menu that showcases authentic Middle Eastern cuisine ranging from the simple to the sublime. The Chef mastery of traditional spices and flavors makes each offering an opportunity to experience classics and delicacies in new and exciting ways. Every plate becomes a culinary journey that ignites the senses
