This restaurant and cocktail bar puts a new spin on the small plates category by focusing on the flavors of Istanbul. Dimly lit romance seems to be the goal of the restaurant's design scheme. Red leather banquettes are lit by chandeliers and tea lights, while framed pieces of contemporary art from local artists hang on exposed brick. Signature dishes include mussels served in a saffron and hard cider broth with aioli and fries, lamb skewers with couscous and homemade meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce. More causal fare like an angus burger topped with cucumber-aioli mayo and a grilled chicken breast sandwich are also available. Shige, the in-house mixologist, concocts drinks using high quality ingredients such as chili-infused tequila, Earl Grey tea, fresh grapefruit juice and rhubarb bitters. The restaurant regularly holds events including electronica, traditional Turkish music and poetry readings. Stop in early for the happy hour before 7:30pm when you get a three-course for $21.—Keith Wagstaff
