Byblos Restaurant Review

: Byblos’ original location on Metairie Road has long been a beloved outpost for Middle Eastern favorites such as falafel, fattoush salad and chicken shwarma, and this Uptown branch delivers the same food. Students and businesspeople alike gather for martinis, espresso and beer. The drunken halloumi --- warm ouzo-soaked cheese --- is an exciting appetizer, and we've never been disappointed by the interesting interpretation of Caesar salad. Among the various lamb preparations is a plate of barbecue baby-back ribs, smoked in-house. The wine list is respectable, if not terribly imaginative, and the requisite sweet baklava is available, too.
