Charlotte Our New Favorite Restaurant in Beirut

Summer is near and so are the endless gatherings that will take place when families and friends return from abroad. One of the restaurants that should be number one on your list is Charlotte Beirut, a new beautiful place in Mar Mikhael that has a French spirit in its amazing decor and interesting menu. The guys behind Charlotte are experts in the food industry as they already introduced to us Nonna and Goutons Voir. 
They first serve fresh bread and a healthy eggplant mix with yoghurt and basil instead of the butter.
We started with the Croque Madame and it was a divine start; the best Croque Madame you will ever taste. It contained ham and an overdose of cheese and cream thanks to the Emmental, mozzarella and fresh goat milk. It was topped with a flawless fried egg and was served on pain de campagne with a side of green salad. We loved the taste and we "mmmm-ed" after each bite.
For main platters we had the Steak Frites and the Crevettes au Curry Rouge. 
•The Steak was exceptional! The meat was succulent; so tender and juicy and the sauce was finger licking good! It was very consistent and full of flavors with this spicy after taste thanks to the pieces of pepper. The fries were very crispy and not oily. We loved dipping them in the sauce with every bite of meat. It is a must try platter. 
•The Crevettes au Curry Rouge was exceptional. The sauce teleported us to heaven! It was made of red curry and mango chutney giving an incredibly impressive mix. The shrimps were perfectly cooked but we would have preferred if they were served without their unpeeled tail that was not practical to eat. They were served with basmati rice with raisins.

To make from our dinner a memorable one, the Crêpe au Caramel Beurre Salé made us drool. It was simply orgasmic! We can't express what we felt after each bite. The dough was perfectly prepared and the sauce was out of this world! Caramel lovers, it is highly recommended.

Our experience at Charlotte was phenomenal from the positive ambiance to the friendly service and of course the yummy food that will keep us coming for more.
P.S: we want to sign a petition so that they give us the chance to choose between shrimps or chicken for the Red Curry platter because we love chicken curry especially with this amazing sauce.
