Restaurants, French Furn Al Hayek
Bergerac, Restaurants, Beirut

As the oenophiles among you may have worked out, Bergerac is a traditional French restaurant with a south-western spin. It's what they might, back in the motherland, call a "restaurant de quartier": the sort of rustic joint where hearty meals and casual vibes come before haute cuisine. The dining area is rather cramped and the service can tip into Gallic impatience during peak hours, but this is all part of the #authentic experience: Bergerac doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't. And when the food is this good – the cheese this creamy, the duck this succulent, the (ahem) snails this tender – it doesn't need to be. If you can nab one of the limited outdoor tables, do.
