Village Voice's Description

We felt lucky to stumble on this Turkish spot, whose doors were flung open on a warm afternoon to reveal an inviting pastel interior just below street level. We plowed through a half-dozen mezze, finding the fresh fried anchovies, octopus salad, and baba ghanoush especially tasty, served with a crusty round loaf rather than cardboard pita. The menu emphasizes seafood, and a whole Mediterranean sea bass arrived slightly charred, with the moist flesh falling easily away from the bones and the crisp skin intact. Sided with salads, it was a shareable bargain.

    I stumbled on this restaurant one night and decided to take a chance. Im really glad i did. They started me off whith a bowl of olives in oil and the greatest bread. I had the grilled calamari salad and grilled sea bass. Both were fresh and tasty. I had a few turkish beers and called it a night. Akdeniz is not fancy, just great food and prompt, courteous service. Give it a try.
