Ali Baba

212 E. 34th St. New York, NY 10016 | Murray Hill | 212-683-9206

Location Description:

What looks like a fast-food joint from the outside turns out to be an excellent and rather formal restaurant inside, a perfect date spot with its convincing fake fireplace. The ambitious menu takes some time to read--there are 10 lamb entrées alone--and includes plenty of Ottoman stuff you've probably never heard of, like balik kofte (fried torpedoes of minced fish). The iskender kebab is heartily recommended: cubes of buttered pita bread topped with slices of doner kebab sauced with tomato and yogurt. There's even a section of vegetarian entrées, rare in a Turkish restaurant.
