Hospitality at its prime.

In the past decade there has been a revival in interest in diners. Though fast food chains replaced many of them in the 60s, diners are now considered a classic example of American cultural history. Fifties-style diners, in particular, have become no less than museums depicting, what is considered by many, the richest of all eras.

The trademarks of a classic American diner, undoubtedly, include: chrome interior, homemade desserts, mouthwatering comfort food, and a down-to-earth fine dining experience conveyed through the friendliness of the servers.
Bob's stands out against any regional attempt to portray a genuine American diner experience. Originally established in Glendale, California in the 1950's, Bob's Diner has been considered significant to American history, culture, and architecture. The founder, Bob Wian, had, in fact, created the "Big Boy" as the first double-deck burger; the double-decker that no other than McDonald's later introduced as the famous 'Big Mac'.

What, primarily, puts Bob's Easy Diner on top of its game, is its authenticity in delivering a fine American diner experience that existed in the 50s. This notion is rather understated in others' efforts to carry on such an experience.
It is fair to say that Bob's serves the best burgers in town. Not only is it privileged to have the "Daddy of all Burgers" on its burgers selection, it is also known to superiorly grill its quality patties, as if prepared on your backyard. Everything else on the menu is nothing short of amazing.

The monumental Café Hamra catches your attention even when you're just drifting by: a paramount red hue fishes you into a regional museum of art, music and taste. A collection of rare posters and photographs from the pop culture familiar to the Beirutis of the 70's hang on a stream of cherry walls bounding the heterogeneous interior. The creators' heartfelt loyalty to the history of Hamra and its once bustling strip of cafés urged them to resurrect the culture of sidewalk cafés.

Like the residents, Café Hamra fuses the local with the international and the rural with the urban in the food it offers, the design elements and the mode of delivery. The menu is predominantly international with commercial favorites prepared to suit the local taste. Graffiti of Beirut's street scene is dispersed across the outlet. Interior elements of the Lebanese countryside are amalgamated with industrial material harmoniously crossing you over from section to section. What's become a local hangout from the moment it opened its doors suits everyone and anyone: fitted with leather couches for the coffee loungers, the striving students and the businesspeople. Dining tables are set up for the hungry patrons looking for a convenient variety and the biggest seated outdoor space in the area nestled in Café Hamra's backyard housing the narguileh puffers, backgammon lovers and those yearning for a true al fresco experience.

If you happened to be strolling down memory lane, make sure to make a stop at the new landmark: a destination that will be celebrated as the initiator of the backyard cafés movement in Hamra for generations to come.

Le Relais de l'Entrecôte is one of the landmark restaurants of both Paris and Geneva. Le Relais de l'Entrecôte offers a set menu of a salad starter followed by a double portion of delicious meat and fries. The meat is served with the secret sauce that has become internationally famous.

The first Relais de l'Entrecôte opened its doors in August of 1998 on the corner of Abd El Wahab and Monot Streets in what was then still an area of ruined buildings and unpaved streets. The renovation of the building in which the restaurant is located led to an explosion of cafes, pubs and night clubs in the area which has since become recognized as the leading entertainment area in Beirut.

Following on from the success in Monot, the second restaurant was inaugurated in Verdun, one of Beirut's most active and vivid areas. Both restaurants are dedicated to maintaining the authentic French atmosphere which is epitomized by the restaurants in Paris and Geneva and which has found its own niche in Beirut.
