Layla Lebanese Restaurant Opens in the Grove

Layla Lebanese Restaurant is now open at 4317 Manchester Avenue in Forest Park Southeast's Grove district. (The space was previously home to Flavors BBQ Sports Bar & Grill; before that, it was the original location of Five Bistro.)

I have yet to find a website, Facebook page or even, alas, a phone number for Layla. However, a top-secret Gut Check operative did manage to procure a copy of the menu for me. It features a selection of hot and cold appetizers (hummus, labneh, falafel, the fava bean dish foul moudames) as well as soups and salads. Entrees include beef and chicken shish kebabs, beef kefta and marinated and grilled lamb chops. Most of the appetizers are under $5, most of the entrees under $15.

 We stopped at Layla for lunch today. It had been ages since I had Lebanese food and Tron had never had it. I have to say they do what they do amazingly well! Everything from appetizers to dessert was super awesome! If you have never tried Lebanese I would suggest getting the "Layla Mezza for2" it's a great way to try multiple things! We will def be going back!!


A small group of us just had dinner there. The food is excellent and the chef and co-owner were very nice. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be making it a regular spot.


The food are excellent very exotic menu, is very clean plus music and bellydancer make you feel like you overseas...great all the family enjoy
