This Midtown East Turkish spot is spacious, lively, and welcoming. Food-wise, everything comes out incredibly quickly, and we especially like the manti dumplings and the spicy lamb kebab with lavash bread. Service is attentive, the atmosphere is relaxed, and the bread in particular is so good you’ll probably want extra.
