Liza is a wonderful Lebanese inspired restaurant serving up delicious Middle Eastern cuisine. Really think 'haute cuisine' as she takes all the dishes that we know and love from that part of the world and elevates mezzé you might find at street carts to gourmet status. While all the traditional ingredients are there--chickpeas, eggplant, lamb--they have been given a contemporary twist with a nod to their French environ. My lunch was a sampling platter at 18 euro served in a beautiful silver tray making the whole experience feel as though I was really no longer in Paris.
For those of you wanting something lighter or possibly to take along with you, there is 'L de Liza' right next door--a bakery that serves sandwiches, soups and salads alongside breads and sweets that have to be tried.
So there is a perfect little way to spend an afternoon in Paris--art outside the walls of a museum and food that will take you outside the French bistro. Enjoy.
