Byblos Restaurant & Lounge Restaurant Review

: Byblos Restaurant & Lounge --- a Westwood fixture for 30 years --- has been remodeled thanks to new ownership. A sea of white linen-clad tables is surrounded by muraled walls and white banquette seating. As evenings progress, the dining room is illuminated by lights that alternate in a rainbow of colors. On one side of the room is an elevated stage for the live entertainment. Overseeing the kitchen is a Lebanese chef whose specialties include hummus, baba ghanouj and kebbeh nayyeh (Lebanese steak tartare). The menu is à la carte except for Friday and Saturday nights, which feature good-value set menus along with a band and belly dancing shows that start around 9 p.m. (The festivities sometimes last until 4 a.m.) The Friday menu ($38) includes 11 mezze (small plates like grape leaves and very tasty tabbouleh) and a main course of chicken, beef and kafta kabob, plus grilled vegetables and rice, while the Saturday menu ($45) presents 14 mezze plus the main course. An international wine list --- Lebanon, California, France, Italy and Australia are all represented --- is a nice bonus. Cocktails include a Lamborghini Margarita made with Patron tequila, Grand Marnier and fresh lime juice. There's also hookah available for those so inclined.
