Turquoise Turkish Grill Restaurant Review

: Take your taste buds on a Turkish tour in this brightly hued space with elaborate wooden screens lending a touch of Anatolian authenticity. Most of the appetizers come with an enthusiastic thumbs up: ezme (a spiced vegetable spread); baba ghanouj with sesame oil; phyllo stuffed with feta and parsley; herb-y falafel---all show just enough difference from other Middle Eastern preparations to set Turkey apart. Lebni, an appetizer of yogurt with walnuts, dill and garlic, is especially good with the traditional, leavened breads. Turkish shepherd salad can fail to charm if the tomatoes aren’t at their best, but the red lentil soup is exceptional year ’round. Also fit to be tried are entrées such as the imam bayaldi, a stuffed baby eggplant, and various kebabs such as the iskender. Come dessert, the ultra-dense and creamy rice pudding is an absolute must-have.
