So Sweet Lebanese and French Pastries
Much like Lebanon itself, where people speak Arabic and French, So Sweet Lebanese and French Pastries uses at least two "languages" to interpret decadence. Most visitors will be familiar with the French and European sweets, including croissants, truffles, tiny tartes, mousse, tiramisu, and traditional cakes. Perhaps most eye-catching is the rainbow of macarons, available in flavors such as vanilla cream, pistachio, and strawberry. You can even order a macaron cake, an over-the-top confection that's made with the same ingredients but 10 times bigger.
On the Lebanese side, there are at least seven varieties of flaky, honeyed baklava. Middle Eastern flatbreads, savory za'atar croissants, and cheese, spinach, and meat pies emerge fresh from the oven daily. The staff also carves slices of kunafa, a sweetened cheese pastry topped with crushed pistachios, and bags up handfuls of syrup-coated fritters—not unlike donuts—called awamat and mshbak.
