Byblos Old Metairie 

The Byblos on Metairie Road was the first restaurant in the Byblos franchise to open its doors 14 years ago. It’s fun, casual atmosphere is matched only by the amazing Mediterranean food served. Ingredients are always fresh and high quality. Private and group dining is available, and reservations can be made at any time during business hours.

We at Byblos on Metairie Road are especially proud of our customers’ loyalty. A second generation of New Orleanians is now experiencing the dishes we serve thanks to being introduced by their parents, who have frequented Byblos for years.
