Eat Traditional Lebanese In Bay Ridge
Adorned with traditional Lebanese decor, you’ll notice Tanoreen’s unique aroma before you even enter the restaurant. We recommend ordering the Sayadiyya—two whole sole fish sautéed with caramelized onion, toasted almonds, and various spices. And for anyone preferring to not look their dinner in the eye, their Kafta tahini or kibbie offer up just as much Lebanese authenticity to make this visit to Bay Ridge worth the trip.

After dinner, go from bold flavors to bold design at The Owl’s Head. This wine bar wears its artistry on its sleeves (or its front facade, to be specific), offering up one of Brooklyn’s best variety of wine and beer selections, while consistently playing an active role in Brooklyn’s artistic community. Every year, they commission a local artist to create a new storefront mural (including some artwork inside as well), so enjoy the view over some drinks, indulging in the bar’s diverse eye candy.
