Meaning ‘tell me’ in colloquial Lebanese, upmarket Ilili is all about sharing plates and breaking freshly baked pita to get the conversation flowing. Hot and cold mezza include hummus with various different additions, such as jalapeño and pine nuts, as well as baba ghanoush and warm eggplant. Sharing mains range from seared lamb chops to house-made semolina gnocchi, with some recipes direct from Lebanon and others reinterpreted with a New York accent by chef Philippe Massoud. There’s a prix fixe lunch and à la carte options at lunch, brunch and dinner.
