Hailing from Turkey, the Bozkurt brothers bring native expertise to the menu at Istanbul Bistro. A critic from Sacramento Magazine lauded the restaurant's authentic honesty and deemed their baked eggplant karni yarik "as comforting as a grandma’s hug." That edible embrace joins grilled kebabs, home-style vegetable casserole, and traditional Turkish desserts.
