LAist is going on a delicious spree around LA from A to Z. This week is brought to you by the letter G. We learn that Lebanese is indeed Mediterranean at Gaby's Mediterrenean on the Westside.

Back when Trivial Pursuit was first created, blue was Geography. But then U.S. gamemasters took Trivial Pursuit over from the Canadians, and must have realized that Americans just don’t know enough about world geography if we’re educated through the U.S. public school system. In the newer versions, blue is now People and Places, because, well, does anyone really know in which body of water is Christmas Island? What about which two countries the Himalayas serve as a border? And did we all know that Lebanon touches the Mediterranean?

No, we all don’t know that Lebanon is Mediterranean, at least some of us at LAist didn't. Which is why we were wholly enlightened when we went to Gaby’s Mediterranean on Venice Boulevard in Culver City and ate Lebanese. No wonder we could never sweep the board in Trivial Pursuit.
