I miss Bennie's on Columbus

AlisonB | Jul 29, 2003 02:23 PM

Bennie's Lebanese on Columbus Avenue was one of my favorite places in the world to eat. I had been going since 1986 - almost 15 years - and was devastated the evening I showed up last year and it was closed. The frame shop next door told us that the rent had gotten too high. Does anyone have any clue if these guys have turned up somewhere else? A million years ago I had heard that Bennie was actually a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, who knows? I do remember quite clearly though, the little old ladies who used to do the cooking...
I want to cry when I think about it.
