- For $15, you get $30 worth of upscale American cuisine at dinner.
- For $7, you get $14 worth of lunch fare.
The Zagat-praised Turtle Restaurant is the belly- and community-friendly byproduct of culinary dynamo Curt Sassak. As a protégé of celebrated French chef Yannick Cam at El Catalan, Curt is no stranger to stocking Euro-inspired foodstuffs including locally sourced eggs, veggies from nearby farms, and cheese from neighborhood cheddar trees—all in support of the restaurant's strong loyalty to Slow Food ideology.
During dinner, garlic-rosemary roasted lamb chops with wild mushrooms and luscious layers of whipped-potato napoleon ($28) compete for stomach space against oven-roasted chicken breasts stuffed with sweet sage sausage and cornbread ($19). During lunch, visitors can enjoy chef-d'oeuvres such as fried chevre salad, an herbed-goat-cheese croquette arranged atop baby spinach and below warm bacon dressing ($9.75) or the Turtle club, a BLT fancified with turkey, shaved ham, baby swiss, tarragon mayo and the sweet taste of homemade challah bread ($9.50). After any meal, scoops of gourmet gelato or sorbetto ($3 small, $4 medium, $5.25 large)—available in flavors such as vanilla, coconut chocolate chip, honey lavender, and exotic jalapeño peanut brittle—leave tongues shocked, awed, and eager to lick frozen flagpoles in the name of love.
