Byblos review image


Perfect For:See And Be Seen

Byblos is a Mediterranean restaurant that feels very South Beach - but sadly not in a good way. It’s expensive, a place people mainly come to be seen, and you will be charged for water regardless if you’re actually OK with tap or not. There’s seating on the first floor, which just looks like a plain old hotel lobby. Upstairs is a better place to sit, though it still resembles a cross between a nightclub and ancient Egypt. The food here consists of things like manti dumplings, crispy artichokes, and a selection of tiny Turkish pides that really need to be bigger. None of it will make you furious, but it will leave you signing the check with a decent level of regret.
