This restaurant features Turkish fare that is delicious and authentic--it had better be, located half a block from the Turkish Mission to the United Nations! Many varieties of cold and hot appetizers, grilled meats, kebabs, and flavorful stews. Turkish and international wines and beer. Nice upstairs patio for outdoor dining, weather permitting.
The food was OK. Steaks were large, but the bone-in rib steak, which should be very flavorful, needed salt and steak sauce. Caesar salad was so-so. Truffle mac and cheese tasted great, but the portion, which the server said was big enough to share, really wasn't. Very noisy, discouraging conversation. Chairs had those uncomfortable, shallow mid-thigh seats designed to encourage you to leave--shameful in a high priced place. Go to Mortons.

Intensely flavorful, eclectic Asian fusion fare. We loved the spring rolls, shu mai, and rack of lamb. Decent selection of wines, beers, and signature drinks. Nice decor, not too noisy, attentive waitstaff.

Outstanding food; knowledgeable, pleasant and attentive French servers. Extensive wine list, many very reasonably priced. One of the best meals I've had. Try the foie gras sampler appetizer to share. Worth a trip to Boston--I will definitely return.
