Welcome home! Here’s the motto that could suit Beyït Jedo, this Lebanese restaurant open late 2017, in Paris Avenue Daumesnil. As a matter of fact, Beyït Jedo means “At my grandpa’s” and Marie – the place owner – tells us the story of this small restaurant that’s a true family business!
If the (delicious) recipes come from her father, she turned to her grandfather to find the inspiration to imagine Beyït Jedo. From the colorful paintings to books, phones and pictures filling shelves, without forgetting tables, everything belonged to or is a reference to the patriarch!
Moving on to the food, we went for a mezze to share, perfect if you don’t know what to pick between a hummus (€6), kibbeh (€6), a Lebanese burger (€15 including Batata Harra) or grilled food (€9-13). For €40 for two, we’re served a huge and well-filled tray with traditional dishes from the country of Cedar! Eggplant caviar, tabbouleh (the one with parsley, not semolina), falafel, small cheese and meat fritters (samboussek), hummus, jawaneh (chicken wings with cilantro and lemon), the whole is delicious and finely concocted.
Encouraged by this wonderful mezze, we couldn’t resist but sharing a tea with gourmet desserts… And we don’t regret it! Mixing pistachio, cream and fig, flavors are really sweet, and we love how light these sweet delicacies are.
With small prices and wonderful plates, Beyït Jedo is likely to become our new HQ!
