There are many Spoon Restaurant’s around the world but none as illustrious as this pairing of the legendary Hotel Byblos in St. Tropez with international celebrity chef Alain Ducasse’s Spoon.

Spoon Byblos, a Patrick Jouin designed space, has a different slant on the chains’ ethnic dining concept and focuses on the Mediterranean rim countries healthy cooking especially Provencal and Italian cuisines. The large wine list includes globally produced selections of wines from both the new and old world. After it opened in 2002 the St. Tropez crowd gravitated to this bistro very quickly. Just a short walk from this bistro is the famous disco Les Caves du Roy, the original Beirut nightclub was built underground and survived bombings that destroyed the luxurious Exelsior Hotel it was housed in. The Los Angeles and St. Tropez branches were all orchestrated and built by the same interior designer who created the original club in Beirut, the late, Serge Sassouni. I flew down from London to attend the opening of the Byblos Hotel and the Caves du Roy where friends of Serge and mine were gathering such as actresses: Vivian Ventura, Barbara Bouchet, and Joanna Pettet along with so many others, perhaps Charlotte Rampling and Jeremy Lloyd—it has been such a long time I do not recall the entire guest list, although I do remember it was a fun night!
