Private Bar for parties at Al Bustan.
Private Room at Al Bustan
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.
