"Based on industry research and traveler feedback, we've compiled a list of the 10 most loved and most talked about restaurants just outside of San Francisco. We are thrilled to announce that Amoura Restaurant has been recognized on our list of the "Top Restaurants Outside San Francisco Worth Traveling For!"."
"Here, classic Mediterranean dishes come with modern twists: tender, smoky grilled lamb skewers are draped over tabbouleh with butternut squash and arugula, while a perfectly cooked roast chicken is drizzled with garlicky basil pesto. The notable drink menu includes a wine list rich with unusual Lebanese and Croatian vintages, as well as an impressive selection of arak, an anise-flavored liquor popular in the Middle East."
“Amoura Restaurant, owned by the Shihadeh family, recalls Middle Eastern and Mediterranean fare in the fresh, modern vein of Ottolenghi in London. On top of that, they have the largest selection of arak—a traditional, Middle Eastern anise-based liquor – we’ve seen anywhere: 45 bottles and counting.”
“…Shihadeh is preparing to open a new, 6,000-square-foot Amoura restaurant in downtown South San Francisco, complete with a full bar, an open kitchen and a private dining room, just as the Peninsula city is going through a restaurant revival.”
“Sam Shihadeh, who has owned Schoolhouse Grocery in South San Francisco since 1969, bought a 6,000-square-foot building a few blocks from Grand Avenue. The site, the former Leaning Tower Restaurant, has been dark for the better part of 15 years, but Shihadeh plans to reopen it as a restaurant, bar and all-day cafe.”
