Established in the mid-1980s as Egypt's premier French restaurant, Justine has only improved with age. The daily specials are always great choices. Perhaps a shipment of fresh mussels from Alexandria is given a light, delicious broth and placed over pasta; asparagus, harvested in the morning, is steamed and on your plate by evening; duck- and goose-liver pâté is transformed into an array of delights. The à la carte menu is equally inspired. At the end of your meal,
prepare yourself for one last indulgence, because Justine is in a league of its own when it comes to dessert. Service is flawless.
