WINNER: The Beirut

Toledo is a true melting pot of culinary cultures, but we take a lot of pride in our Mediterranean options. That makes The Beirut’s victory in this category all the more impressive— but anyone who’s eaten there knows why it came out on top. With an eye popping assortment of authentic Lebanese cuisine, with some very good pizza for good measure, The Beirut’s soothing atmosphere is the perfect compliment to your meal.
