Hunger, unlike ambulance sirens, meningitis, and restraining orders, is not something you can safely ignore. Answer the mighty call of a bellowing belly with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Lebanese cuisine at Al-Amir Lebanese Restaurant, located in the historic Bishop’s House. This Groupon is not valid on December 31.

Al-Amir Lebanese Restaurant offers authentic tastes of traditional Middle Eastern cuisine in a setting that tactfully combines elegance and nonchalance like a tux-and-gown pool party. Place your pocket Ouija indicator atop the menu of items crafted from local ingredients, and wait for it to gravitate toward the kibbi sineeyé, a crispily baked bread pocket filled with ground lamb, beef, and parsley ($9). Alternatively, you can settle on the warak enab, which covers naked ground beef and basmati rice with grape leaves, and simmers the whole concoction in lemon, olive oil, garlic, and herbs ($8 appetizer, or $13 entree). Veggie eaters can sample an entree of batinjan, a pile of baked eggplant, potatoes, and tomatoes with sautéed garlic, onions, and tomato sauce ($13), while carinvarians can find meaty meaning in dajaj, a grilled and marinated chicken fillet ($17), or in kharouf mohammar, a slow-roasted, specially seasoned cut of lamb served with a side of cucumber yogurt sauce ($18).

A full-service bar whets the palate, with favorites like the Lebanese margarita, Almaza beer, and authentic Spanish coffee—which is served either cold or piping hot, just like fairytale porridge. On Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Al-Amir Lebanese Restaurant shakes with the mesmerizing wiggles of a belly dancer. Call to make a reservation, and enjoy a peaceful meal while surrounded by the restaurant’s stylishly exposed bricks, large art hangings, and copious amount of breathable oxygen.

Al-Amir Lebanese Restaurant gets a four-star average from Citysearchers and from Yelpers, with Gayot giving it a 12/20, and 79% of Urbanspooners liking it:

  • The food is always of the highest quality starting with the excellent bread & salad. The staff is attentive & friendly, while maintaining a professional bearing. – av88tr, Citysearch
  • Embark on a journey through the Maza Al-Amir, a tour among five appetizers (especially notable are the hummus and the smoky baba ghanouj), culminating in a tasty kebab and tender basmati rice. For vegetarians there are plenty of flavorful options as well. – Gayot

Al-Amir Lebanese Restaurant

Chandeliers glow softly within the historical Bishop’s House, throwing rays against the exposed brick walls that ensconce tables draped in white tablecloths. Servers march out with steaming dishes of authentic Lebanese cuisine, whisking succulent aromas of roasted lamb and grilled veggies through the air. Composed of locally grown ingredients whenever possible, the hearty helpings of marinated meats and fluffy basmati rice tantalize taste buds as diners bask in the glow of candles. Al-Amir's bartenders decant Lebanese beers and mix house-invented cocktails, lubricating mouths for cheering on traditional belly dancer Claudia as she undulates more gracefully than a greased-up slinky every Friday and Saturday night.
