Baklava's owner showcases his Turkish roots and passion for the country's cuisine with a sumptuous spread of tasty meze, colorful sauces, and juicy marinated meats. Starters of flaky pastry and flavorful baba ghanoush spread out on white tablecloths to prime appetites for Old-World Mediterranean flavors before patrons skewer beef, lamb, and chicken or joust for their date's honor with kebabs. A cosmopolitan mélange of flavors and textures peppers the palate, with creamy yogurt accentuating meats and veggies alongside aromatic spices and rich tomato-based sauces. Baklava's captivating décor envelops guests in a rustic aura with murals of Turkish landscapes on the walls and high ceilings of timber beams, and an open kitchen invites diners to discuss Ottoman history with hardworking chefs.
