Can’t tear yourself away from the fine dining options Beirut boasts? L’Avenue du Parc in Minet el Hosn definitely fits under that header, with mains running between 50,000 LL and 100,000 LL a plate! If you’re there on a budget—no shame in that!—order the calamari fritters, a generous bowl of lightly battered squid rings drizzled with a sweet-and-spicy Thai dressing and crushed peanuts. This dish is so ample, it could qualify as a main, and for 29,000 LL, it’s perhaps the best value dish on the entire menu. Together with the starter bread kit, carrots, and kernels offered with your meal, you’ll be all set.
