I went to Byblos looking for a few treats to serve at my book club meeting last night, as the book I’d chosen had a tie to the Mediterranean. The owner was so nice and so helpful, and I came away with some great treats and beverages to try, as well as the ingredients and instructions for a few easy things I could make myself. If I were planning a lunch or dinner, I’d definitely try the deli case, as the baklava was heavenly. They also have a lot of specialized cooking items, and a very tempting cookbook with beautiful photographs of recipes from different countries in the region. If you like to cook, and are looking for some new inspiration and ingredients, I think you’d enjoy this place. If you don’t like to cook, and just want to go to a great Mediterranean deli, I think you’d enjoy it, too.
