As Lebanese in Paris, we have long dreamt of a restaurant that resembles the Lebanon that we know and love; one that is modern, generous and audacious. It is at 14 Rue de la Banque, only meters away from La Bourse and La Place des Victoires that the liza resides. It is here that we come to grab a drink, have lunch on a brass tabletop, enjoy a candlelit dinner and eat brunch on Sundays. In order to portray this Lebanon and design a contemporary Beirut style home, the painter and decorator, Hubert Fattal, surrounded himself with the Lebanese creators of today. The simple cuisine affirms its origins, having invented vintage foods, logging all the classics; boldly proclaiming the fatherhood of Finger Food. Because after all, we didn't invent anything new; in Lebanon and its Orient, it has long been known that the Mezze is best eaten with one's fingers. Liza Asseily.
