Strange juxtaposition? Any thoughts?
yeah, it is intersting, isn't it? its part of a small chain of a half dozen resteraunts, and the first was in an old house with a garden and a huge fig tree. if you look through these pictures you can see the garden. http://friendseat.com/restaurants/Sa...ubaiyat-photos
I am guessing that the name comes from some type of assosiation with the garden. Brazil does have a large lebanese community, but I believe that they are descended from late 19th centurey christians, for the most part.
