On a rugged mountain peak nearly 1,000 meters above the red-tiled roofs of Bsharri in north Lebanon, a blissful summer getaway awaits those ready to make an effort to escape the stifling heat of the city. Far on the outskirts of the remote village of Hadath al-Jibbeh, the tightly knit Habshi family welcomes you to their simple restaurant, aptly named Jiwar al-Sama, or Neighborhood of the Sky, for its placement seemingly at the border between the Earth and the heavens.Rania Habshi, the restaurant's co-owner, says it is the highest eatery in Lebanon. But potential accolades aside, the awe-inspiring view and the fresh, vibrant food it serves make Neighborhood of the Sky worth the more than two-hour drive from Beirut.Neighborhood of the Sky sits on a ridge above Tannourine's majestic cedar forest, at one end of a bowl in the mountains that descends down to Bsharri and Hasroun, and up at the other end toward the Cedars ski resort.A small distance from the restaurant sits a low-lying church, "The Church of God," which Habshi and her family have been constructing for the past two decades.
