About  Us

An escape from the dreary restaurant grind, St. Elmo’s is aNew England Brasserie that serves elevated pub grub in a retro-urban seaside setting. Located on Beirut's Zaitunay Bay, the restaurant owes it’s name to St. Erasmus of Formiae, the patron saint of sailors who is affectionately known as St. Elmo’s. The space is slavishly decorated with the kind of carefully distressed nautical vintage stuff scavenged at back alley garage sales and flee markets, creating an atmosphere that is loved by the younger generations and the adults alike. ALL ABOARD.


The cure for the common meal, St. Elmo’s serves round-the-clock comfort food accompanied by a slim, unpretentious wine list at very reasonable prices.


Packed with ‘crowd pleasing fare’, like the rich and gooey mac-and-cheese, the New England lobster roll, the classic fish & chips and a plethora of salads, burgers and other pseudo-traditional foodstuffs.Don't forget to reward yourself with our famous 'soft center chocolate chip cookies' with the variation in added flavors, our home-baked 'nutella cheesecake' or sample our selection of ice creams and sorbets at Elmo's Ice Cream Parlor on your way out.


The bar lounge scene at Elmo’s is a phenomenon unto itself, rising to a fever pitch, as diligent boozehounds work their woozy way through bone-warming specialty drinks, like 'St. Elmo's Fire’, our margaritas, daiquiris and our famous ‘Bloody Marias’. Our famous Sunday brunch parties are the talk of the town and have introduced a new kind of party to a city that was not yet exposed to this sort of experience. Open since December 2011, it is safe to say that Elmo’s has managed to capture the elusive mix of style and spirit of ‘the perfect day at the bay’.
