With the year coming to an ambling close, there is no better way to slowly unwind into the summer break than with a glass of Champagne. (Or at least we can't think of one.)
Cue: Beirut's Champagne lunch. Until December 22, the inner city restaurant is offering a $45 lunch which includes two glasses of Mumm Cordon Rouge, two breads of your choice and any two main dishes every day from 12 to 3pm.
Run by head chef Jacopo Crosti, known for working at Sid Sahrawat's excellent culinary Sidart, Beirut is a Middle Eastern cuisine-focused restaurant which weaves together traditional and contemporary culinary techniques in order to serve you with a new, nuanced slant on the classics. Menu options for the Champagne lunch include slow-braised goat, smoked yoghurt labna, leek and currant fritters, manoush and Afghan bread with burnt butter and rose petal jam.
Go on, you deserve a lazy lunch this week.
