Unlike cinematic love scenes, Turkish cuisine can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of authentic Turkish and Mediterranean fare at Marmaris Restaurant in Brooklyn.
Marmaris Restaurant's menu of authentic Turkish and Mediterranean fare beckons grumbling bellies. Placate palates with an appetizer such as artichoke salad ($8), stuffed mussels ($10.50), or fried eggplant ($10.50). Carnivorous customers can chow down on the chicken shish kebab ($16) or the tender lamb chops ($25.50), and flora feeders can nosh on the portobello mushroom entree ($16.50). Marmaris specializes in whole grilled fish⎯including dorado ($21.50), red snapper ($20.50), and brook trout ($19.50)⎯that not only pique the tongue with savory flavors but also remind eaters of afternoons spent diving for quarters in neighborhood wishing wells.
Marmaris' guests can enjoy foreign fare at the dining room's linen-topped tables or amid the fresh air in the outdoor seating area. The eatery also proffers authentic, live Turkish music every Saturday to distract diners from building a lance out of leftover kebab skewers.
