Locals are loyal to this jewel-red delight, where fragrant and flavorful dishes vie for attention with beautiful Turkish kilims, rugs and lanterns. Among appetizers (meze) not to be missed are manti, a steamed dumpling filled with ground lamb and fresh mint that's drizzled with a light garlic-yogurt sauce and fresh artichokes braised in lemon and olive oil. Lamb dishes, especially those with eggplant in the mix, are a standout. The restaurant offers both prix-fixe and à la carte options. Near the Museum of Natural History.
