Bigger isn't always better. I've never been a fan of enormous restaurant menus. So, this was good news. Lebanese Taverna, a family-owned restaurant group based in Arlington, Va., has recently unveiled a new "modernized" menu at its six full-service restaurants, including the one in Harbor East
The new, streamlined one-page menu showcases Lebanese Taverna favorites and some new dishes like Shrimp Arak, Chicken Shawarma Salad, a Halloumi Sandwich Platter and a Chef's Tasting Platter. The new menu a multi-page affair, which was referred to in-house as the "bible," because of its overwhelming size.
In a press notice announcing the menu change, Lebanese Taverna vice-president Grace Abi-Najm said that the old menu "was almost daunting as guests didn't seem to know where to start."
Along with the new layout and the reduced selection, the new menu features the restaurant's selection of local and craft beers. The restaurant has also revived its weekday happy hour, which features special menu promotions from 4 p.m.-7p.m.
