It might seem strange to say it's worth checking out the newly James Beard Award-winning Dearborn restaurant for the complimentary fresh bread alone. But it will only sound strange If you've never been there before. The service is always exceptional, and the food is some of the best Lebanese food one can possibly find outside of Lebanon. Be sure to try their specialty juice if you haven't yet (you might want to eat it with a spoon).
