"This is a love letter to you and how you brought us together. Only in a city as electric as this could we bring you a place as eclectic as this."
(Beastie Boys, 2005)
Just like you, we dream of ditching work to sip rose on the park (what park) and of hot summer nights all year long. We hope you'll come and be a part of what we are - a place to eat drink celebrate life with what we know best - food and drink (crazy delicious food and drink, to be exact) .
People keep asking who we are and where our name came from. Well, here it is - it was through a series of inspirations that are downtown Beirut: a history of street warfare, street art, design, music, our 20th-century brick and mortar, and an abstract approach to be whoever we wanted to be, without boundaries. We are cooking food that is meaningful to us and delicious, and we are careful not to label ourselves.
Sure, there are jazz roots in hip hop, graffiti roots in Andy Warhol, Basquiat and Ayman Baalbaki, and mediterranean roots in our space, but overall we hold above all else a deep-seeded ideal to be creative and provide a welcoming place for you all to eat. BARON means BEIRUT.
Our space is local, spreading from the inside out; we're organic in our approach and our delivery. Our team's background is complex and while we hail from some of the finest dining establishments in the world, we just want to be your favourite, neighbourhood joint.
The menu comes from Beirut's farmers markets, Tripoli fishing boats, Bekka Valley fields and the wondrous meanderings of our spirited travels searching out our passionate palates. We're crushing seafood, roasted meats, crazy good wine and creamy espresso. Our wine list is broad enough for you to come by and enjoy wine with us every night or, you can be a baller and order something you can't get anywhere else in the world. We're Mediterranean influenced, European executed and entirely Beirut.
Built For You,
