Comfortably ensconced at the south end of Maria Hernandez Park, this bar and restaurant sprang from its manager's passion for his native Lebanese cuisine. Formerly Café 280, Ali’s can serve as a perfect shorts-and-sandals spot or as a low-key prelude to a more ambitious night. It’s also a restaurant, its airy back space playing the role of dining room and its shaded front patio allowing for breezy evening banter. The menu doesn’t forgo the standard meat and potatoes, but many options go beyond average drunk grub.
