Village Voice's Description
Think of Bi Lokma as a weekday lunch hub or a cozy corner for chow just like babaanne--er, granny--used to make. Begin with hot yogurt soup, a tangy, rich bowl of herb-flecked stock that should get the rep as Ottoman penicillin, while stuffed grape leaves packed with pine nuts, rice, and currants translate to fun finger food. Appetizers lure the vegetarians, but herbivores are (mostly) out of luck come entrée time. Lamb reigns proud and loud, featured in most of the 13 options, including the smoky ali nazik and the stuffed cabbage dressed with a light tomato sauce.
Tips from foursquare
Recommended dishes: Hot yogurt soup, sautéed spinach, Coban salad, grilled lamb meatballs, ali nazik.
Winner of Best Use of Grape Leaves in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! No canned stuff here - just perfectly rolled grape leaves!
Excellent fast-casual Turkish lunch spot with rotating hot and cold dishes. The vegetables are the highlight of the meal.
