2013: Best Lebanese Cuisine Restaurants in Lebanon

Lebanese food is always a favorite. The country boasts a huge number of restaurants and each one has something special to offer - their food, their service, their variety, their interior design... while some serve authentic Lebanese cuisine, others serve Lebanese food with a twist while others are simply enjoyed for their sophistication and high-end experience - and the latter is what I have usually enjoyed the most. I have tried dozens of places this year and here's my list of favorites this year.  I have to mention here that I am aware that there is a large number of great places out there like Le Phoenicien, Burj El Hamam, Casino Arabi among many others; which I will be visiting in 2014 for detailed reviews.
