Almayass was stablished in 1996 as a small family run restaurant. Today it has sister branches in Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, Riyadh and New York. The menu offers both Lebanese and Armenian dishes where even the purely Lebanese dishes are somewhat twisted similar to how the Lebanese/Armenians prepare them at home. The atmosphere is very homey, where an oud/guitar player/singer performs every night a part from Sundays.
$25 - $45
