At Thievery, Head Chef Julian Cincotta serves up modern takes on classic Lebanese dishes. The narrow restaurant sports edgy neon artwork, dark furnishings, exposed brickwork and a gritty approach to wall treatment, along with a rocking soundtrack on play. It’s loud, brash and irresistible to the couples and young locals who linger over the varied menu, with every plate designed for sharing.
Perhaps start your Middle Eastern culinary experience with the delicious hummus, served with a puddle of iridescent red paprika burnt butter or the Thievery nayyeh, a tumble of hand-cut beef dressed in tangy pomegranate molasses then topped with crunchy fried shallots and garlic. Lebanese Fried Chicken, dubbed ‘LFC’, arrives golden brown, with a crisp crust revealing tender soft meat and a garlic–oregano dipping sauce. Finish with creative mains like chargrilled lamb cutlets with a salad of parsley, red onion and Medjool dates – exciting, creative and totally delicious.
PSST! Groups are especially catered for with feast menus, including one with arak.
