"This is a love letter to you and how you brought us together. Only in a city as electric as this could we bring you a place as eclectic as this."
(BARON, 2016)

Founded by Athanasios Kargatzidis in Lebanon, BARON (Armenian slang meaning the man of the street) takes you on a journey from the seaside tavernas of Greece through to the market halls of Lebanon and the countryside restaurants of the levant.

Located in the Armenian Mar Mikhael sector of Beirut, BARON has a distinct dinning presence – The Chef Counter and bar to eat and drink with our chefs and our architecturally designed dining space, each offering an attentive but informal, simple but sophisticated hospitality.

BARON was awarded Best Restaurant in Lebanon 2022 & 2023 by “The World’s 50 best Restaurants” and ranked #12 in the MENA’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022, # 16 in the MENA’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023 & 2024
