L’Ybane to Relocate to Hell’s Kitchen


Upper East Side Mediterranean restaurant L’Ybane is moving to new West Side digs. The new space for the New York outpost of chef-owner Al Rineh’s flagship restaurant in Nice, France, is larger, but the menu will be much like the original: Lebanese-influenced small and large plates, served in a wine-bar setting. Expect the usual suspects: hummus, grape leaves, and moussaka, as well as tuna niçoise salad, assorted pastas, and grilled meats and fish. The 50-strong wine list will feature several by-the-glass options and pitchers of sangria for the summer.
