reason to move back to Beirut

All good things come to Hamra, it seems:


The Galerie XXe siecle sells beautiful furniture that I can find for much less (if a bit more dinged up) at the Chelsea flea market – but I always loved window-shopping its goods as I walked by. And now I see that I could window-shop from the comfort of Olio West, enjoying its signature pizza.

Not that the pizzas in New York aren’t top rate: they are, but no Italian restaurant here yet has the same collection of sweet memories accrued to it that Olio does :).
