Prune, Restaurants and cafes, Beirut

The sister of nearby favourite Acoté, Prune is another friendly, casual French bistro with a strong following among the Mar Mikhael yuppie crowd. With its wooden furniture and marble tables, it's a slightly more traditional affair than its sister – although the sleek black decor and dwarfing vintage photos of centuries-old European dilettantes on the walls lend a self-consciously trendy air to the proceedings. On the menu, you’ll find a comprehensive selection of classic French dishes, well prepared and eminently toothsome (we're especially partial to the onion soup). If you're feeling extravagant, know that Prune is one of the best restaurants in the city for oysters, which washes down well with a bottle of champagne.
