With his mother, Liane Farry, the chef hef Samir Allen is created a bubble of Lebanese hospitality that reflects the family’s 129-year history in New Zealand. Named for Beirut’s vibrant dining street, Gemmayze St encourages diners to order the Lebanese way. Say “jeeb” — Arabic for “bring” — and for $60, a selection of exquisite dishes will appear. Staples such as baba ganoush, hummus and falafel have smart-dining finesse — the use of pickled turnip in the falafel and Allen’s ability to present hummus elegantly are special touches — and sourness, the secret to comfortable feasting, is rightly appreciated.
