Miami’s Mediterranean Hotspot: Byblos

I can’t remember the last dinner I had where every single dish I tried was incredible.  I was in South Beach with a big group of girls, and Byblos pulled off an incredible 4-course tasting dinner for 14 with every dish coming out at the perfect temperature and timing.  Our 3-hour dinner was a true culinary experience, and I would recommend everything on our menu.  The restaurant is small and intimate with food served on mismatched vintage china.  There is a small bar area which had a constant flow of people and good energy on a Saturday evening.  This restaurant is definitely about the food though and not the scene, which isn’t exactly the norm for South Beach.

Below are some of my fav dishes from the night!  For dessert, you MUST try the Strawberry Cheesecake Qatayef.

Roasted Red Beets: pistachio + caraway + labneh + barbari bread

Spanish Octopus: fingerling potato + biber chili vinaigrette + preserved lemon

Vine Ripened Tomato Salad: pomegranate + persian feta + pickled red onion

Turkish Manti Dumpling: smokey eggplant + yogurt sauce + molasses

Creamed Spinach Pide: feta cheese + toum + dukkah

Yogurt Baked Fluke: toasted bread crumbs + walnuts + brown butter

Hazelnut Chocolate Mousse: sweet cream + katafi baklava
+ coffee molasses + chocolate caramel tuile

Strawberry Cheesecake Qatayef: sumac strawberry + honey syrup + pistachio

Marrakesh Garden:  Bombay dry gin, cold pressed cucumber, celery, fresh mint & lime
