We can’t rave enough about this stylish Turkish spot. We wolf down the manti (Turkish ravioli stuffed with bits of lamb in a creamy yogurt–and–chili oil sauce), whole slabs of juicy, salt-crusted bream and some of the best hummus around. Savvy regulars skip the filling entrées to fuel up on apps and sides like fried zucchini pancakes with yogurt dip and char-grilled calamari with diced tomatoes and garlic. Couple these dishes with homemade sesame bread, and you’ll have enough pocket change for a cup of Turkish tea.
