$45 for a Three-Course Turkish Dinner for Two ($90 Value)
Each diner chooses one appetizer, main course, and dessert from a prix fixe menu of lamb and beef doner, kebabs, and sweet puddings.
Cazbar’s chef distills the culinary traditions of Turkey's Bolu region into the kebabs, grilled meats, and salads that fill his eclectic menu. House specialties such as the char-grilled lamb shish kebab and baked okra entertain taste buds with a symphony of flavors and a break dance of textures. Other dishes bring veggies into a starring role, such as the stuffed eggplant, which the Baltimore Sun called "a lesson in delicate flavor." The complexity and care common to the kitchen's savory dishes carries over into the desserts; 50 layers of phyllo dough enclose blankets of toasted pistachios and lemon syrup in each serving of baklava.
With belly-dancing shows throughout the restaurant on Friday and Saturday nights, Cazbar has the power to impress a date or a cardboard cutout of yourself. The restaurant's Middle Eastern decor delights eyes with vibrant walls, patterned canvases, and hanging lanterns.
