In addition to accepting donations directly to the Bulldog that’s what I do I read books I drink coffee and I know things shirt in addition I really love this disaster relief fund, Ilili recently added a vodka-based “Beirut Hope” cocktail to its menu, all proceeds from which will go towards relief, along with the profits from this Sunday’s brunch and dinner service. Just as traditional Lebanese mezze intends to bring a community together over shared plates of vibrant, fresh flavors, the last two weeks have given the cuisine an ever-deepening sense of poignance and urgency.

Considering the uncertain state of the restaurant industry in general right now, such an extraordinary amount isn’t lost on Massoud. But he’s seen the human spirit triumph in times of tragedy before, and knows that can happen again.Below, a recipe for Ilili’s bright and herbaceous vegan tabbouleh, a Beiruti favorite that’s heavy on the greens, lighter on the grains.
