Authentic Turkish decorations and music enliven this intimate restaurant. Boat-shaped pides are reminiscent of pizza, filled with cheese and all manner of toppings — think eggplant, ground beef, and even eggs. Most meals come with a simple but flavorful red lentil soup and a trio of salads. • Prices: $–$$ • Hours: Tu.–Th. 10 a.m.–9 p.m.; Fri.–Sat. 10 a.m.–10 p.m.; Sun. 10 a.m.–9 p.m.; Closed Mon. • Bar: Beer, wine • Credit Cards: Visa, MC, Disc. • Outdoor Seating: Yes
