$10 for $20 worth of Mediterranean Food

The dinner menu at the BYOB restaurant includes appetizers such as grape leaves stuffed with rice and pine nuts ($6.50), and main courses such as char-grilled chicken kebabs ($14) and baked eggplant topped with ground lamb, bell peppers, and tomatoes ($15). Vegetarian and vegan options include a falafel plate with fried chick peas, assorted vegetables, an istanbul salad, and hummus ($13).

Istanbul Cafe

The aromas of fresh-baked pita in clay ovens, char-grilled kebabs, and homemade baklava mingle and waft through Istanbul Cafe's bright turquoise dining room replete with Turkish wall hangings. To ensure authentic Mediterranean and Turkish flavors, the chefs do as much food preparation in house as possible, from spearing fresh kebabs daily to hand making desserts from scratch to carving gyros meat right off a spinning gyroscope. The baked eggplant comes stuffed with lamb, tomatoes, peppers, and and herbs served with sauteed seasonal vegetables and basmati rice. Seated around tables, patrons may sip steaming mugs of turkish coffee and tea or uncork their own bottles of wine toted from home.

Reviews

The pita pockets were nice and warm, too. All of our orders were delicious! Service was excellent.

It has a lot of space inside, with tables very well presented; incl. table cloth, cloth napkins nicely folded, and two forks.
