– The story of Albi is my story, a Lebanese national born and raised in beautiful Beirut, living as an expat, first in Paris, and now in San Francisco. I have always considered myself my country’s ambassador, all the while embracing the culture of the cities I live in. My dual identity is a mirror of Beirut; oriental and occidental, traditional and modern, elegant yet popular, colorful yet melancholic, eclectic and full of contradictions. Albi also looks like me because it gathers all of my favorite dishes, from the ones my grandparents and parents make at home, to the ones I devoured in the small eateries of the streets of Beirut. Albi was born from my eagerness to share them with you.
See through Albi and you will see through my heart!
From Albi, to yours!
