Behind a wall of windows shaded by white curtains, Cedar House’s staff corrals the diverse flavors of Middle Eastern cuisine to craft traditional Lebanese dishes from fresh ingredients. Gird stomachs for main-course conquests with a practice round of tearing through hot appetizers, such as hummus topped with chicken shawarma or chilled starters of grape leaves stuffed with tomatoes, rice, and herbs. Rigid kebabs keep rowdy rows of tender, marinated beef and lamb from cutting in front of polite bell peppers and onions, and schools of tilapia and tiger shrimp flip onto smoky grills in preparation for tableside trips. House wines that hail directly from Lebanon soak taste buds with flavors tasty enough to refresh palates yet bold enough to cleanse the saltiest of vocabularies.
Wall-size murals of Mediterranean scenes and cathedral ceilings beguile guests with an illusion of al fresco dining in an exotic setting, and an open floor plan ensures private conversations free from outside guesses during games of I Spy.
Cedar House Mediterranean Restaurant
Under the canopy of cathedral ceilings, platters of Mediterranean specialties arrive either hot or cool, seasoned with traditional Lebanese spices. Patrons sample Lebanese fare from a menu that includes chicken or lamb shawarma, kebabs, and hummus mixed with meat and pine nuts. Desserts such as cream caramel flan, rice pudding, and baklava are made fresh in house. The restaurant also offers catering for which the staff will plan out a menu tailored to each event, be it a wedding, baby shower, or baby’s first Lebanese word.
