Byblos, the Eastern Mediterranean eatery at the Royal Palm South Beach, is a good time. It begins with the space: a high-ceilinged, two-story affair themed to transport you to a chic isle in the Mediterranean. The focus, however, is on interpreting dishes from Levantine culture, found mostly in Jordan, Lebanon, Israel, Syria, and parts of southern Turkey. The original Byblos is in Toronto, and as is often the case with Miami outposts, this location boasts a more extensive seafood selection than its northern sibling. It's also equipped with a wood-burning oven, used to bake pide (Turkish flatbread) and barbari bread (Persian flatbread) each morning. Pillowy and perfectly golden, the barbari bread is dusted with the kitchen's personal za'atar spice mixture. Order it with a plate of roasted red beets and organic labneh — a thick, tangy yogurt-like dip that's cultured in-house. Another must are the lamb ribs dipped in dukka, an Egyptian spice blend of toasted nuts and seeds that lends a lovely crunchiness to the delicious protein.
