Fodor's Review

This sophisticated urban dining room with soaring ceilings is a local favorite for meeting friends or dining with a group. Zaytinya, which means "olive oil" in Turkish, devotes practically its entire menu to Turkish, Greek, and Lebanese small plates, known as meze. To get the full experience, make a meal of three or four of these, such as the popular beef-and-bulgur kibbeh fritters with finger-licking yogurt to dip in, or the hearty fattoush shepherd's salad in bright

pomegranate dressing. So many options make this a great choice for vegetarians and meat lovers alike. Reservations get snapped up quickly here, but those who practice their pouncing technique can be rewarded when a roomy bar table open up.
