If it’s fish that you’re after, Turquoise is the spot for you. Simply prepared, the seafood here is always fresh and never too heavily dressed with any unnecessary sauces. We’re partial to the simpler options on the menu, like the broiled flounder with olive oil and lemon and the grilled salmon, along with the slew of great appetizers. Those include the homemade tzatziki, a whole fire-roasted eggplant with tahini, thick zucchini chips, and a halloumi flambée. One more thing: order the dairy desserts (Our favorite? The homemade biscuit cake).
