The Inside Story



Zikrayet is Arabic for “memories.” And memories are what started this restaurant...

Two Lebanese couples, who emigrated to the U.S., were discussing how much they missed home. Lebanon, a picturesque country on the coast of the Mediterannean Sea, is known for its world-renowned cuisine, entertaining nightlife and hospitable spirit.

So, they decided to bring Lebanon to Alexandria, VA.

The gift to you

Zikrayet offers the full Lebanese experience -- exquisite homemade food, live entertainment and traditional hookah.

Lebanon continuously makes best-travel lists. But at Zikrayet, you can skip the travel -- and experience what a night is like in one of the most fun-filled countries in the world.

The Phenomena

Lebanon’s food is not only renowned across the Middle East -- but worldwide.

That’s why Zikrayet is proud to serve authentic Lebanese cuisine.
Chef Samer, who’s been with Zikrayet for more than a decade, uses imported spices, fresh ingredients and true passion -- to celebrate dishes that have been enjoyed for generations.

NOTE: all meat served here is halal.
