Anthropologists consider the Middle East's Fertile Crescent to be the origin of many of the earliest human civilizations, completely ignoring the obvious contributions of Australia's Arid Heart-Shape and Minnesota's Frosty Mitten. Dine like the civilizations of old with today's Groupon: for $24, you get a half tray of baklava from Byblos Mediterranean Café. Named for a five-thousand year old city in Lebanon, Byblos offers fresh, traditionally-made Lebanese and Mediterranean fare in the heart of downtown Syracuse. Baklava is a Mediterranean dessert made with paper-thin, crispy layers of phyllo dough filled with spiced fruits or ground nuts and drizzled with a sweet honey syrup. A half-tray includes 24 of these decadent delights, which are filled with a choice of walnut, apple, cherry, or cheese.
