Founder of Comptoir Libanais, Tony Kitous, extends his family of restaurants to Birmingham, with the venue set to open on 20th March of this year.
Tony seeks to share the unique dishes and culture from his Lebanese upbringing, providing Grand Central Birmingham with a new taste. Fancy a alternate taste from the usual Chinese or Indian takeaway? Comptoir Libanais can provide you with just that, fusing a selection of authentic spices into their home cooking.
Not a fan of spices? Do not fear, as there are a variety of Mezze platters on offer, ideal for sharing and experiencing a selection of Middle Eastern flavours.
Serving dishes and light bites all day, the menu offers Halloumi and Zaatar Croissant and Shakshuka as an early morning snack, Lebanese Wraps and Marinated Jawaneh for a more substantial meal, and delicate treats, such as Dark Chocolate Orange and Cardamon Tart for those who want to indulge.
Comptoir Libanais translates to 'Lebanese Counter', a place for everyone to enjoy authentic food and relaxed chatter. In the hope to spread his love of good food, Tony always aspired...
"...to create a place for everyone to eat and drink in humble and friendly surroundings"
This is reflected in the welcoming decor of the venue, lavished with a bright and beautiful mixture of vibrant patterns.
Tony wanted to incorporate his joyful childhood memories into the venue's appearance. He has used genuine Arabic tiles to decorate the walls and floor, his grandmother's oilcloth chairs, harissa tins, and old family pictures to add to the ambience: a true Middle Eastern experience.
Food for on the go
Comptoir Libanais additionally offers a take away service, allowing customers to grab and go.
If you're unable to collect the goods, a delivery service will be launching soon, catering to customers on their way back from work or from the comfort of their own home.
Can't get enough?
For those who can't get enough of Tony's homecooked Lebanese dishes, his chain sells specialised goods that you might find in a genuine Middle Eastern market, known as a souk. Guests can buy fresh authentic ingredients, homeware and sweet treats, such as Nougart and Baklawa. Ideal for recreating your favourite Lebanese dishes.
To assist you in cooking your very own little taste of Lebanese, Tony and his team have created two recipe books for their customers and are about to release their third, Feasts from the Middle East, available to pre-order on Amazon Prime.
With an accessible and bustling venue location, Comptoir Libanais is sure to be a success, as commuters seek a bite to eat before heading on their way.
