Zizo really needs no introduction , it's is all about good comfort food - food that you would eat in a Lebanese home , and now with modern times , some dishes with a twist ! Danny Elsoury assured me his grandmother fully approved of the few ' liberties ' he had taken with an otherwise authentic menu where French and Turkish influences play a role due to historic influences . He mentions with pride that they only use the highest grade Lebanese organic ingredients like pomegranate molasses ,Zaatar, Summac to keep flavors authentic.
Duo of Chicken and Mutton Kibbi with 7 spices was excellent . Chicken Wings in a Garlic Lemon Butter zesty and full of flavors . The big winner was the Mixed Grill Platter of Chicken and Lamb Kafta and Chicken Taouk. Mini Bites - Their take on Pizza didn't work for me though
open flat bread topped with Zaatar and Ilive Oil was yum.
Zizo is all about delicious comfort food - great energy, good flavors and a wholesome experience at very pocket friendly prices . Oh yes , vegetarians for once wont feel shortchanged here !
