The stylish decor is offbeat and whimsical: flower-painted orange and lime-green walls and tasseled curtains draped across the top of the floor-to-ceiling windows. Light kofta, made with lentil, red pepper and cracked wheat, are perfect with a squeeze of lemon, and the tender chunks of calf’s liver are terrific rolled inside a hot pita. The lamb has a mild tomatoey tang, and the grilled whole branzino is nicely charred. Squares of buttery baklava are deceptively small but immensely filling.

Situated in a quiet park of the Upper East Side, Beyoglu treats you to fine Turkish cuisine. The brightly decorated restaurant has two floors, and lots of outside seating. The best things to try are a variety of the mezes or small plates. They have everything from fried calf's liver to falafel. Some stand out mezes are the freshly grilled shrimp, filo dough stuffed with creamy feta cheese, mixture of chopped spicy vegetables, and the mashed eggplant salad. You get fresh warm Turkish pita bread with these appetizers. There are great salads, chicken, beef, and lamb kebabs, and fish dishes as well.
