Restaurant Week Lunch Prix Fixe $24.07

Sunday窶認riday 01/23/2011 to 02/06/2011 Sample a Tasting Pour of Arak with our Restaurant Week Dinner Menu


ARAK “There are drinks to get you drunk, and there are drinks to be savored with food” Arak represents the latter. This smooth, cool, refreshing liquor, tasting of licorice with a hint of peppermint washes the taste buds refreshing the palate for each new dish. Arak makers also tout it’s holistic properties, claiming that the aniseed aids in digestion and relaxation. Arak is not drunk straight but is mixed in approximately 1/3 arak to 2/3 water, tradition requires that water is added before ice. Be adventurous and mix yourself or allow our servers to mix for you. “The first glass is for medicinal purposes, the second glass makes you happy and with the third you eat the wind” Ksara Massaya Razzouk Touma
