The bold aromas of the Eastern Mediterranean emanate from Byblos’ bar on the first floor of this two-level stunner. The restaurant’s mission is to revive authentic Levantine cuisine using modern techniques—expect flavorsome meals, served family-style—and the same ethos guides the cocktail menu. Check out the tableside spirit-infused cold tea trolley—it represents the most sophisticated and attention-grabbing component of the beverage program (order this baby and everyone will be looking on with envy). You essentially get to play adult tea party with an antique Persian setup! The Edgware Road cocktail—London Dry Gin, citron vert tea, Moroccan mint, and lemongrass—is especially invigorating (hello, lemongrass stalks!). It’s aptly named after London’s Middle Eastern, specifically Lebanese, foodie mecca.
