In Ithaca for the day, and stopped by for a late lunch. The restaurant was clean, pleasantly decorated, and playing Turkish music. Ordered the Cay and it arrived in less than a minute in a tulip glass on a brass charger, with a little bowl of sugar. Delivered by a very nice young lady who taught me how to pronounce it properly. A bowl of complimentary yogurt soup was then brought (light and refreshing). My entree, chicken sis kebap was very quick to follow, was very nicely plated, and quite tasty. Cooked well, and still very moist. Accompanied by a parsley, tomato, and onion salad as well as bulghur wheat (which is tastier than it sounds!). For dessert, homemade pistachio baklava which was nice and crisp, not too sweet, not soggy at all. And to finish, kahve! I have wanted to try Turkish coffee for years, and had to get it. Served in a magnificent little brass cup - sort of like a miniature Russian podstakanniki. Very thick, very rich. Think a very thick shot of espresso. All very quickly served and very hot and fresh. Service was delightful, and I thought the prices were quite reasonable for a three course lunch in a pleasant sit-down restaurant. I will be back!!
