We’re invited to a reception at Habtoor Hotel in Horch Tabet (here) this evening but I’m too sick from the weather change in Lebanon… So I wanted to tell you about a beautiful Italian restaurant right in front of the hotel: Margherita (here). Their main branch is in Gemmayzeh, a wooonderful little restaurant with one of the best pizzas in town, but it’s so little that it’s always overcrowded. So better go to Horsh Tabet! They introduced a non-smoking rule in February already, while other restaurants are still trying to find ways not to comply with the new ban (in force since September). Yes, shishas are getting veeery scared in Lebanon at the moment… Oh, and the cigars too!
