Turks & Frogs Tribeca


A Jewel Outside The Holland Tunnel 3/15/2008

Every month my siblings, wives, & significant others, choose a restaurant for an extended luncheon. This month my brother chose Turks & Frogs. I don't understand the frogs allusion, but from the delicious cuisine of Turkey this restaurant is a winnr. For starts, it's beautiful. Next, the service was outstanding. Neither too much or too little. Our waiter explained the dishes, made recommendations, and conversed with our table of 7 like we were old friends. Every single thing we ate was to die for - the creamy caviar dip and hummus on the crusty hot flatbread. The phyllo cigars of feta cheese. We ordered the lamb dumplings to share across the table as an appetizer. Everything we ordered was prepared to our specifications - medium rare lamb for myself to medium well lamb for my nephew. I had the lamb with eggplant puree. It was perfectly balanced. My nephew, however, made me jealous - his lamb with fresh oregano and lemon was moist, tender, and flavorful. As has been written, the desserts are humble. But you can't go wrong with the rice pudding. I finished my meal with Raki and Turkish coffee. The perfect end to a perfect day. One last thing - the bar tender wasn't there. But a brave waiter got behind the bar and with our supervision, created the signature Turkish Delight cocktail. He did great! We each had 3 apiece. The waiters told us it gets very crowded at night, but we had the restaurant to ourselves for most of Saturday afternoon. Outstanding! Pros: Food, Service, Decor, Parking Lot Next Door more
