Throughout their capacious menu, New Kapadokia’s chefs recreate the flavor-filled cuisine of Turkey, marinating meats and stacking kebabs with a medley of sweet and spicy seasonings. Dining begins with a tableside presentation of appetizers, which tempts the senses with bright colors, savory smells, and promises of immeasurable wealth. Follow pre-platter bites with signature dishes, such as the succulent lamb chops ($22), which emerge from a 48-hour soak in a marinade pool of garlic and herbs to recline on a bed of rice. Lunch options range from pita-wrapped sandwiches ($7.95) to traditional kebabs ($9.95+). In the sarma beyti kebab ($9.95 for lunch, $17 for dinner), a grilled slice of lavash bread embraces spicy ground beef before homemade tomato sauce and a dollop of garlic yogurt flood the platter, washing away ravenous hunger and esophageal graffiti. Sweet finishes such as flaky baklava ($5.95 for lunch, $6 for dinner) rinse down with invigorating turkish coffee ($2.25).
