Time Out says
An everyday Lebanese canteen located just off the escalator in SoHo, Maison Libanaise is inspired by the cultural renaissance of 1960s Beirut, known as the 'Paris of the Middle East'. The ground floor offers an array of takeaway items while the first floor restaurant offers a dine-in experience with a menu of traditional Lebanese mezze dishes. One of this venue's best (or worst) kept secrets is its killer alfresco rooftop. The rooftop dining space, dubbed La Buvette, offers an escape from the bustle of Central without actually leaving. The grilled lamb dishes and Levantine dips like the baba ghanoush, hummus and labne are on point.
