Momo at the Souks Sketch/Momo restaurateur does impeccable Beirut eatery
In the center of Beirut located above the local jewelry souks, restaurateur Mourad Mazouz creates a bohemian wonderland of culinary prowess and effortless style. Teaming up with designers Annabel Karim Kassar and Violaine Jante, the result is an intimate and homey space of geometrical ceilings and walls adorned with floral wallpapers and collectable artwork. Bold gold leaf chairs are juxtaposed to bright red upholstered banquettes and Moroccan rugs in colors of scarlet red and black. An octagon-shaped bar offer high-backed barstools with red vinyl cushions and direct access to a large terrace with carved-wood awning and piped-in lounge music day and night.
