Wow - so delicious! My husband who is 1/2 Turkish grew up on Mediterranean food, and both of us could not stop raving about the food at Pera. My husband has been to some top-notch kebab restaurants in Turkey, and Pera's dishes were some of the best he's ever had! We had THE PERA TRADITION tasting menu - the meats were seasoned perfectly, and the vegetable dishes were incredible...especially the roasted whipped eggplant which had a divine smoky flavor. We ended with a cool rice pudding. Hands down, Pera is the best Mediterranean restaurant we've been to - portions are generous and the staff was very professional. Be sure to try a glass of Yeni Raki, a licorice flavored liquor - it is the perfect compliment to your Mediterranean dining experience. Pera's in a great location on Madison Avenue (easy walk from Times Square) - I highly recommend you try Pera. You'll be a raving fan too!
Pros: Incredible food, great service, inviting decor
