The food is largely traditional Middle Eastern fare, but each dish is surprisingly subtle, complex and full of flavor. The lentil soup is lighter than you’d expect and resonant with lemon. To get a good idea of what Al-Amir is all about, the Lebanese Tour comes with hummus, smoky baba ghanouj, impeccable grape leaves, tabbouleh, falafel and a choice of entree.
