For over 20 years, Al Bustan restaurant has been synonymous with Lebanese fine dining. Now in its sprawling new location at 319 East 53rd Street (between 1st and 2nd Avenues) Elias Ghafary executive chef/owner and Norman Hobeika /owner take the cuisine and culture of their homeland...
Not the best lebanese but the atmospher makes it up to that. The service was great! The food was nice.
The lower level is great for private parties
Great food, and they even had Lebanese wine! Beautiful and clean too.
The tabuleh salad is the best I had in NYC. Try their kafta!!
Get the kibbeh and don't be afraid to try it raw :)
My favorite lebanese restaurant of all time, I have been coming here almost my whole life and the food is always fresh and amazing with service to match!!
Love it here! The food is traditional and delicious! Service is always great!
For a Lebanese restaurant,.they didn't have the best Hummus. The service was poor in spite of just 2 tables being served.
Beautiful chandelier and decor. The toasted lamb pita appetizer is amazing, as well as their grilled pita with cheese appetizer. Hummus is always fresh.
