Mediterranean restaurant Byblos (www.byblosrestaurants.com) opened its fifth location (737 Octavia St., 504-291-2300) April 11. That space was home to the restaurant Flaming Torch until a fire forced it to close last year.
The new location offers an assembly-line ordering process, and grab-and-go and pre-packaged meals are available. Diners will find a familiar spread of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes such as hummus, falafel and beef and chicken kebabs.
The Mediterranean restaurant also has locations in Jefferson Parish on Metairie Road and in the food court at Lakeside Shopping Center, and inside Tulane University's campus food court.
