Greek and Lebanese
Cafe Byblos Mediterranean Grill, at 400 N Corona Street, has been a neighborhood staple since 2013, but recently it’s gotten a new lease on life. New owners, a completely new menu, and a bit of a remodel have given the Greek/Lebanese cafe a cool new vibe.
Cousins Yousef (Joe) and Justin Khraim are originally from Jerusalem but had been living in Baton Rouge for the past five years. They grew up cooking together at family gatherings and moved to the U.S. ten years ago in search of new opportunities. After bouncing around the East Coast for a bit, they grew tired of managing other people’s restaurants and decided to leap running their spot. There was too much competition in Louisiana, and when a space became available in Denver, they found that the neighborhood surrounding it lacked good Mediterranean options. They fell in love with the city after just 24 hours, so they moved here and purchased the restaurant.
