Turkish Cuisine owner Engin Cardak invites diners to watch an open kitchen where six Turkish chefs flame-kiss shrimp, eggplant, lamb, and beef into an array of sumptuous Turkish dishes. Amid red-brick walls and kilim weavings, groups can sop up chickpea and eggplant purees with fresh, oven-baked breads from the in-house bakery. Diners unskewer charcoal-grilled meats and peppers from shish kebabs for ease of dunking in yogurt sauces. The 100-seat dining room pulses to the tunes of Turkish pop music, and belly dancers fill weekends with a jangling of hips unheard of since Elvis took the stage with his pockets full of butterscotch candy.
