Restaurant Review: Bar Tartine

I had recently been to Bar Tartine in Mar Mikhael Gemmayze for a girl’s night out dinner. I wish I had clear photos to share with you, but this review isn’t about that visit. Anyhow, on my way out I noticed a little enticing bakery owned by the restaurant, I promised myself I would return to have my fix of bread some other time. Soon later I was delightfully surprised when I stumbled upon the bakery open in ABC Ashrafieh. The display counter was full of bread, pastries, desserts and sandwiches. My hubby and I sat down and the waiter handed out the menus; it was the same menu from the Gemmayze branch with salads, ┬ámain courses etc, so I asked if I could order from the displayed selection since they weren’t mentioned in the menu. He told me sure but I had to go order and come back and pay at my table. I figured he said so for the tip, so I agreed. I went and chose 3 items, the man at the counter handed them to me in a paper bag so I mentioned I was dining in and the waiter told me so and so. He then placed each of the pastries in a plate and sent them our way. Unfortunately, it looked as if they were randomly thrown on the plate especially in the first picture below. read more
