BRASS IS BACK
If you’ve ever been to Brass in Beirut, you know the food is entirely worth the visit.
Now picture this: Brass is bigger, better and exceeds all expectations of any reopening. In keeping with its old identity, the restaurant still sports its burgundy chairs, odd-shaped mirrors, bar concept and a general air of coziness, except now it’s more spacious and the food menu is significantly larger, for which we’re very grateful. Start with their poutine, possibly the best thing on the menu (the secret? Red wine for that extra tang) and follow with the seafood orzo: shrimp, calamari, mussels and, of course, orzo, topped with a delicious pesto sauce and parmesan cheese. For something simpler but just as good, go for the poulet frites (grilled chicken drenched in mushroom sauce) and the quinoa smoked salmon salad, best guzzled down with a glass of white wine.
