Brunch Beirut

Why Join the Table?

Nothing brings people together like good food. Using ingredients straight from Lebanon mixed with fresh produce, we’ll be bringing the spirit of Beirut Sundays to our flat in London. I will be cooking up a storm of dishes to share with a dozen soon-to-be friends, while Malek keeps you entertained and hydrated.
All dishes are shared, with no starter or main, just an endless selection of colourful plates, mostly veggie. To wash it all down, we’ll offer you some Arak, and to finish it off, Turkish coffee, Lebanese tea and desserts.
Our airy and bright flat is filled with art, plants and more plants.
Seated around a communal table, this will be the perfect opportunity to meet new people, listen to some jazzy music, and rediscover Lebanese cuisine. With an open plan kitchen, delicious smell...

House Rules: We will offer complimentary Arak, but please feel free to bring your own bottle.

Smoking permitted in the garden.

We like to place our guests, so please make sure you let us know if you'd like to be seated with particular people who have booked separately.

In a Nutshell

Ribale here, the brains (and hands) behind Brunch Beirut. Growing up in Lebanon, I spent endless mornings watching my mom upturn our kitchen whipping up dishes one after another like magic. It was only a matter of time until I too attempted to cook up a storm. I love experimenting with traditional Lebanese recipes. I take great pleasure in preparing meals and sharing them peppered with stories, laughter and warmth to well-fed guests!

The Whole Hog

Picture this

A warm Sunday morning. Whizz through empty streets of Beirut. Buzz. Door opens. Kiss, kiss, kiss. Have a drink. Share a laugh. Fight for the best seat at the long table. Plates as far as the eye can see. Spreads, breads, meats, salads, tea. And the centrepiece – bottomless Arak.

Because honestly, what else would one do on a Sunday morning?

This affair never starts before midday, for sleeping in is a requirement to be able to endure such large amounts of consumption. Always lasts well into the afternoon, turns into a mini-dance off and ends with promises of a repeat.

I’m convinced the Lebanese invented brunch, and I'm on a mission to spread the word.

Fantastic food - amazing variety and great flavours. Really friendly hosts in a lovely apartment. Enjoyable company. Definitely the best supper club I've been to.

Thank you Ribald & Malik (s/o Damien) for the delicious food, beautiful presentation and wonderful atmosphere - we had a great time! 100% recommend!

Delightful experience, the flavours of Beirut, amazing hospitality, the gold standard of food. Definitely will be back!

This brunch was absolutely sublime. The food was amazing and better than what I’ve tasted in most Lebanese restaurants (including those in Lebanon). What made it truly enjoyable though was the warmth and friendliness of the hosts. I would definitely re-brunch here again and again!

Absolutely had the best time! Brilliant food, brilliant hosts and amazing home. Thanks so much for organising such a wonderful Sunday!

We had a great time at Brunch Beirut. Ribale was a great host, the food was interesting and very tasty (and lots of it), everything was laid out beautifully and they created a lovely ambience. Thank you for having us!
