Chez Zakhia, a renowned Lebanese seafood restaurant located in Amchit, northern coast of Lebanon, has opened the doors of its first branch in Beirut, located on the seaside of the Riviera Hotel.
The restaurant, which is owned by Zakhia Moujahed, had started in 1984 in Jbeil, and then moved to Amchit in 2001.
The new branch has a seating capacity of 400 people, including 180 indoors. The restaurant will add a garden terrace next year, which will increase its outdoor seating capacity from the current 220 to 250. The investment in the project is over $1.5 million
According to Moujahed, Beirut has always been on their checklist but picking the right seaside location was difficult. “Riviera is the perfect landmark and our partnership made it the ideal spot for us,” he told HN.
The restaurant has plans to expand. “We are looking to expand in the Middle East and we have some projects that we are working on but nothing is confirmed yet,” he said.
