Fodor's Review

This bustling Turkish-owned café attempts to please every palate with a mixed menu of Continental and Turkish foods, but it's the latter that star here. Don't-miss items include lamb begendi (braised lamb shoulder with cherry tomatoes, red bell peppers, and eggplant), sogurme (a smoked eggplant, yogurt, and walnut dip), and homemade lahmacun (flatbread topped with ground beef). Vested waiters, white tablecloths, and wood-trimmed surroundings outclass the neighborhood lot.
