Editorial Review of Turquoise Cafe

Turquoise sits pleasantly west of the area's mild hubbub, making the outdoor tables as private a choice as those in your own (hypothetical) backyard. It dishes up contemporary, authentic Turkish fare in a sleek but minimal environment; the menu, however, isn't so understated.

Start with a simple eggplant salad or sogurme, a more sophisticated combination of smoked eggplant, creamy yogurt, garlic, walnuts and crushed red pepper. Those looking for a Turkish experience can choose from a roster of Mediterranean dishes that includes cop sis kabob (marinated diced lamb with flat bread) and su boregi (homemade dough with feta cheese and fresh dill).

The less adventurous will be equally as pleased with more familiar entrees like salt-crusted sea bass and filet mignon.

Average cost: $10-$20
