Lebanon-based food concept Babel, renowned for its progressive cuisine since 2009, has launched its waterfront property at Meraas’s La Mer. The restaurant features a contemporary fusion of Lebanese flavours, with an array of seafood specialities.
Established in Dbayeh, Lebanon in 2009, the Babel brand can now be found in locations across Lebanon and most recently, Kuwait. Babel is recognised for its signature twist on Mediterranean classics, coupled with outstanding hospitality and sophisticated décor with a story in every corner.
Upon entering Babel La Mer, guests will find themselves immersed in an intimate fine-dining environment where food, service, ambiance and excellence through quality come together.
The Babel experience starts with warm and comforting home-made bread served with delectable dips. The olive oil is extracted from Lebanese green olives pressed on traditional stone mills, while sunny cucumbers are hand-picked and pickled in-house to ensure consistent quality and taste. Plates are garnished with authentic Lebanese pine nuts and sumac, a traditional Lebanese spice picked in season from organic lands.
A full mezzeh is available for guests to share with friends and family, which features reinvented classics such as Hummus, shrimps Beiruty and an artistic kebbeh selection, alongside famous Lebanese dishes. Using the highest quality ingredients, guests are treated to an extensive menu of cosmopolitan seafood dishes such as Sashimi Salmon, Fattet Shrimps and Calamari à la Provençale. There are delicious desserts too such as Astha bel Ashta, Knefeh and Jazrieh, to name a few.
The restaurant extends over two levels of different indoor and outdoor spaces, including a spacious terrace section, making it a perfect spot to enjoy a quiet meal over shisha and drinks. The interiors are chic and minimalistic with hints of history. The highlight of the room stands a seafood bar with sandstone walls etched with ancient Mesopotamian writings which lend the room a dramatic but welcoming atmosphere – perfect for experiencing Babel’s diverse dining options. The second floor features a prominent bar area and shisha terrace for the cooler months.
