What You'll Get
Mediterranean cuisine is renowned for the way its rich ingredients inspire innovative food-fighting techniques. Skillfully execute the Kebab Eye Jab or the Hummus Humdinger with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Turkish dinner fare at Rumi in Jersey City. Open every day of the year, Rumi specializes in the authentic tastes of Turkey in a casual atmosphere. Acclimate mouths to the Middle Eastern menu with an appetizer of garlicky hummus ($5), tahini-tickled babaganoush ($5), or expertly rolled grape leaves ($6). Unruly pangs of hunger can be placated with a hearty entrée, such as a gyro fresh from the rotisserie, a vegetarian-vindicating okra casserole, or mouthful of manti, delicate ground beef dumplings topped with garlic yogurt and paprika butter. Rumi also features a skewered bounty of 100% halal kebabs. Take advantage of Rumi's BYOB policy and bring in a brown-bagged bottle of wine or barrel of golden honey mead to enjoy over baklava ($4). Located in the Financial District, one block from the waterfront, Rumi is a convenient destination for postwork dinner or postswimming inoculations.
Six Yelpers give Rumi an average of four stars, and 71% of Urbanspooners recommend it:
