I tried Lebanese wine for the first time ever! And it was delicious. The one pictured above is an ’07 Château-Musar we had for dessert with cheese. The first bottle was an ’09 Corzes-Hermitage, a beautiful Syrah from Rhône. Cicada (the restaurant) is Mediterranean cuisine with influences from Morocco, Lebanon and Greece. The food uses a lot of ingredients and spices I love but rarely see in Japanese cuisine: fennel, harissa, farro, cous cous, Tzatziki, Tahini, etc., etc.
It’s a bit pricey (especially if you drink) but I extremely enjoyed my meal. I wouldn’t recommend this place to tourists, though, as Mediterranean is available and tastier abroad. Though the interior is stunning!
