Houston, TX 77057
The name, Cafe Byblos, comes from the oldest inhabited city in the world.
Hot appetizers, or Mezzah, are served family-style. Signature dishes include Bastroma--thin slices of spicy Armenian smoked beef; Batinjan El-Rahib--grilled eggplant with lemon and garlic; Falafel--spheres of crushed chickpeas and spices fried and served with tahini. Large platters of grilled beef, chicken, shrimp and Bastorma are served along with rice, grilled peppers, tomatoes and onions. Enjoy desserts on the patio, or burn a few calories on the dance floor learning the latest moves from the professional belly dancers.
The restaurant’s main focus is the dance floor and bandstand, designed as a thrust stage, with seating on three sides. Entertainment generally starts 10 PM, and lasts late into the night. The large covered patio is more of an outdoor lounge, where diners enjoy aperitifs and hookahs.
