This past weekend, I checked out a small Lebanese restaurant in a shopping and dining center that I frequent. The area has many small restaurants, boutiques, yoga studios, Fleet Feet, 16 Handles, and most importantly, Whole Foods. As you can probably guess, I go there quite frequently.
On Saturdays, I like to go out for lunch with my brother and explore new restaurants. We decided on trying Kentlands Lebanese Bitro this week. The restaurant is small and has great outdoor seating overlooking a plaza where the Saturday farmer's market is held. There was also live music when we went.
The interior was decorated with a lot of artwork by the owner of the restaurant, as well as other local artists. It was pretty cute.
The menu had a variety of mezza (appetizers/small plates), soups, salads, kebabs, and pita sandwiches. I opted for a falafel sandwich with a house salad on the side.
Hummus and pita bread for the appetizer. I like the thin type of pita bread, though it would have been better if it were warmed.
I also got baklava for dessert that we devoured before I got a chance to take a picture of. It came free with lunch since we had a coupon.
Our check came in a tiny fez hat! What an adorable idea :D
On Sunday, after my long run, I came home to make my weekly loaf of sourdough bread, as well as some hazelnut granola (recipe coming soon). Then I made an open face sandwich with cheddar, chicken sausage, and peppers and a tomato, avocado, and arugula salad for lunch.
