Village Voice's Description

What looks like a fast-food joint from the outside turns out to be an excellent and rather formal restaurant inside, a perfect date spot with its convincing fake fireplace. The ambitious menu takes some time to read--there are 10 lamb entrées alone--and includes plenty of Ottoman stuff you've probably never heard of, like balik kofte (fried torpedoes of minced fish). The iskender kebab is heartily recommended: cubes of buttered pita bread topped with slices of doner kebab sauced with tomato and yogurt. There's even a section of vegetarian entrées, rare in a Turkish restaurant.

    Very friendly staff. I love lebne as appetizer, beyti kebab as entree. For dessert, worth checking out the seker pare.
