Out With the Old, In With the Nuba
With their freshly opened fifth location in Kitsilano, the city’s beloved Lebanese eatery is sure to become that neighbourhood’s hot spot.
The new location offers their well-established menu, with hot and cold mezze and heartier from-the-grill Le Meshwi dishes: try the revered Najib’s Special ($7) cauliflower dish from the former and the delicious lamb kebab ($23) or, for your sharing pleasure, Le Grand Feast ($50 for two) from the latter. Nuba’s extensive beer, wine, and cocktail list allows one to make the restaurant outing a full evening deal. The enclosed patio is picturesque, letting us pretend we’re somewhere far away in the Mediterranean.
Nothing wrong with a little escape. —Anya Georgijevic
