In less than two years Labebe has established itself as one of the area’s best destinations for fine Mediterranean cuisine. Located on Route 130 in North Brunswick, diners enjoy the freshest spices, produce, meats, and fish that are at the heart of Labebe’s dishes. Run by Pierre Hage-Boutros, of Pierre’s of South Brunswick, and his family, Labebe places the same emphasis on the freshness and quality of ingredients as have his past generations. Guests enjoy dishes that have been handed down from his family’s Lebanese mountain village.
For diners who have experienced the cuisine of the region on their travels, dinner at Labebe will transport you back to the jasmine-scented hills. This menu will expand your tastes and explore authentic, traditional dishes. Favorites such as branzino, paella, and steak are also expertly prepared. No matter your preference, the helpful staff will guide you through the variety of choices. The menu is comprehensive, and food is created fresh for you.
Through a special menu, each weekend we highlight the cuisine of a different Mediterranean country. French and Spanish dishes are just a couple of the areas to be featured. Give your taste buds a tour of the Mediterranean at Labebe.
Feathery light tiramisu and the equally light asmaliye with hints of orange blossoms are perfect endings to your meal. Heartier appetites can indulge in a sinful chocolate lava cake. And who could resist house made baklava?
Our main dining room has a chic modern decor of rich browns, creams, plus the sparkle of sleek mosaic walls. The tables are well-spaced and large enough to accommodate the myriad of dishes that entice you. We have two spacious private rooms perfect for business, civic meetings, or personal celebrations.
New this year is outdoor seating on the first floor patio and second floor balcony. In keeping with Mediterranean traditions, these al fresco dining locations will be the perfect dining spots on soft summer nights.
Also new is the expanded Happy Hour, which will now be Sunday to Friday from noon to 7 p.m. Select wines from the Mediterranean regions will be half price, a perfect opportunity to stretch your palate and experience wines that may be new to you. Specialty cocktails and half-price beers are also on offer. Check out the appetizer specials. Labebe’s famous grilled octopus will definitely be on the Happy Hour menu along with mussels, the duck confit and other dishes.
The bar boasts the best Lebanese wines of the Bekaa Valley, bearing the scent of ripe berries. The full menu is available at the bar as well.
