THIS WEEKEND IN: BEIRUT
Craving a culture fix? Stop by Etienne Bastormagi’s first solo exhibition at Solidere’s SV Gallery. Entitled “Mental Landscapes,” it explores the artist’s experiences with Beirut, using urban and architectural references to elicit emotional responses. Runs until September 29.
Amid the pine forests of Bkassine, Tawlet’s latest branch offers a hearty ending to a day in the Chouf Mountains. With a menu cooked by women from the village itself, it’s a dining experience that places emphasis upon the local traditions and produce of the area. Tel. 01.448.129
Café de Pénélope serves up comfort food-inspired sandwiches, salads and sweets. Early birds can pop in from 8a.m., while night owls can revel in cocktail sipping. Tel. 01.390.987
