ilili is New York’s premier contemporary Lebanese restaurant offering inspired Mediterranean cuisine. The menu mixes authentic Lebanese dishes with modern Mediterranean influences to create a culinary journey for the palate and senses. Complementing the international cuisine, ilili offers an impressive wine list that includes wines from all over the world and features favorites from Lebanon and the Mediterranean. The restaurant’s decor echoes the diverse menu, combining the architectural richness of Old Lebanon with an attitude and style that is unmistakably New York. A DJ sets the mood with music from around the globe and soft, amber lighting punctuated by candles create a sexy, sophisticated atmosphere in which to enjoy a relaxed meal. The cuisine, décor and ambience come together to create a new world for your senses to explore, whispering gently in your ear, ilili.

"What a treat. We had so many delightful treats... unique prep on the brussell sprouts, delicious lamb meatballs in a cherry glaze, well-prepared octopus, great breads and dips. Who knew Lebanese food could be so marvelous. Attentive service, hip-looking people, festive vibe for foodies."

"Great salads, good variety of choices, professional service, and daily special is a good deal. BUT IT'S VERY LOUD. Of course, loud translate into a fun, energizing, hip vibe. Just be prepared."
