With the rare exception, Lebanese restaurants in Seattle tend to come in the guise of the falafel joint—quick and cheap rather than elegant and authentic. The cavernous Café Munir aspires to greater things. Chef-owner , Rajah Gargour, has concocted a menu that melds traditional Lebanese and Jordanian flavors, he grew up with. The Chef’s mastery of traditional spices and flavors makes each offering an opportunity to experience classics and delicacies in new and exciting ways. Every plate becomes a culinary journey that ignites the senses.
Everything at this Lebanese spot is fresh, authentic, and ridiculously delicious. It is one of those simple yet welcoming neighborhood places where you can feel very comfortable and get a great, cheap meal.The first time I happen to eat here was when I was scouring Loyal Heights neighborhood for a new place to eat and stumbled upon this gem. It was an exquisite dining experience. The cuisine, aromas and ambiance comes together to create a new world for your senses, whispering gently in your ear, to explore.
I went back on here twice at two separate occasions for dinner with friends and family. Dining at Café Munir is always a pleasant surprise and let me just say this is a great place for group dining. Each big table can seat six (if not more) comfortably. You dine family style and everyone can see and speak to each other. The small plates are sheer delight and attempt to create a culinary journey for the palate and senses.
Café Munir also, features Gargour’s (100+) seductive whiskey collection, that caters to sophisticated tastes and sensibilities.
Come join us on Sunday, the 31st of March at Cafe Munir for Chef's Choice Dinner at $17.50.
Chef Gargour will send you a balanced cross-section of the kind of food Café Munir serves, any dishes they are testing or introducing, and whatever their Farmer suppliers bring to the Market on Sunday morning. Also, they are happy to work around any allergies or dietary restrictions you may have.
Price: The price for this dinner will be pre-fixed and doesn't include gratuity, tax, etc. Please bring Cash! It will make it easy for everyone involved. The price is set to $17.50 per person.
There is a No Show policy (two strikes)
Please no ‘no-shows’ or ‘last minute cancellations’.
Please be considerate and update your RSVP if it changes.
Please note I have locked down the RSVP's 24 hrs prior, which means, no one on the waiting list moves up after that point. This is so that I can give the restaurant a final count at that point. Any member, who changes their RSVP after the set deadline, without contacting me, either by phone or email, will be marked as a No-Show.
This is a small restaurant and it will lose serious business even if one person doesn't show up. Food preparations will be done ahead of time for people attending. One person doesn't show up and that is quite food wastage.
NEW RSVP Code:
Please keep your RSVP up to date. To discourage no-shows & last minute cancellations, I will be managing the waiting list in manual mode. What this means? If you’re frequenter in RSVPing for events and backing out last minute, I will give preference to other members whose RSVPs are more reliable.
