Despite its nondescript façade and modest interior—furnished with tile floors, small tables, and colorful paintings—this casual midtown eatery is a local go-to for authentic Turkish cuisine. House specialties include the stuffed vine leaves and baba ghanoush, along with flavorful meat dishes such as grilled fish and lamb. Ideal for diners who are new to Middle Eastern cuisine, the meze platter includes a variety of traditional dishes, such as hummus, grape leaves, and tabbouleh. Turkish coffee and tea complement signature desserts like baklava and baked rice pudding.

Insider Tip:

Feel free to bring your own bottle of wine for a relatively low corkage fee.
