Upon entering Byblos, we were escorted to the upstairs dining room and sat next to the bar. The atmosphere was quiet (we were their first reservation) but quickly geared up as dinner reservations were checking in. Both of our drinks were incredible. My husband and I ordered the downtown signatures:
bulleit bourbon + house bitters blend + orange oils
tanqueray gin + pistachio orgeat + apricot + orange blossom + lemon + egg white + sumac
For dinner, we tried:
wagyu beef ragu + syrian seven spice + pine nuts + barberries + pearl onion
roasted lamb shoulder for two
slow braised lamb + sumac + pickles + house lavash
lentil + hung yogurt + fried shallots
We could have had 2 more people at our table for the amount of food we recived. The dishes were recommended to us by the servers and they exceeded the expectation. The flavors were phenomenal and it was the best meal I ate while visiting Toronto.
