ilili means 'Tell Me' in colloquial Lebanese. For our guests, Tell Me means listening to and understanding each of their stories and creating new ones with them – ones of celebration and sharing, of long traditions and new beginnings. Every dish at ilili has its own story from the traditional recipes direct from Lebanon, to the modern updates that tell the history of our team, of our cooks and chefs who have left their mark on our kitchen, and our serving staff and managers who have been ambassadors of hospitality. Our menu is never done – we find inspiration all around, in new ingredients, new approaches, and fresh takes on old standards. ilili is a place where creativity abounds from the kitchen to the dining table, where each guest becomes an artist, creating his own palette of flavors with our dishes as the canvas and good friends as the audience.
