Saturday Brunch at Secteur 75!

Two weeks ago I attended with a couple of friends a Saturday brunch. It was such an amazing experience; we spent like 3 incredible hours enjoying the place, atmosphere and of course the delicious food.  Sharing the experience, here’s a full blog post!

1 Friends at Secteur 75

An old traditional Beiruty house turned into a must try artistic resto-bar. It’s located in the heart of Beirut, Mar Mikhael Street. Its name refers to the area where it is located “Secteur 75”, which means district 75.

2 Secteur 75

The atmosphere is very artistic with graffiti decor and wall paint along with old style rustic chandeliers, doors, windows and unconventional furniture. The music is so nice, not too loud and not too low, you simply enjoy the stay while chitchatting peacefully with your friends.

La Cave de Joël Robuchon Wine Tasting

I’ve attended a wine tasting session last week. It was held at La cave de Joël Robuchon – The Wine Library in Beirut Souks.

Cave de Joel Robuchon

We tasted the two types of wine: Chateau Marsyas Rouge 2010 and Marsyas Blanc 2012.

Distinguished for their amazing color, flavour and after taste you simply wouldn’t want to stop.

Red and white wine

 Moreover during the tasting session, they were introducing a special edition wine designed by Nada Debs (special coffrets).

Special Edition by nada Debs

La Cave de Joël Robuchon, is part of a concept store based in Paris. The boutique is the creation of Joël Robuchon, one of the most esteemed chefs in France and includes a fine selection of wines pre-approved by Robuchon himself. So if you get to pass by Beirut Souks don’t miss the Wine Library, it’s just next to TSC Signature. When you’re there, give it a try and let us know your experience.
