      What do you recommend there?

        Do they have good esme?

        I've been craving it lately.

        That, and really gigantic artichoke hearts served upside-down in garlic and olive oil.

      2. Although I haven't yet been, I've heard good things from Turkish colleagues about a couple of places mid-Penninsula:

        Gyros Gyros
        498 University Ave., Palo Alto
        Tel: 650/327-0107

        Ephesus Mediterranean Bistro
        2639 Broadway St., Redwood City
        Tel: 650/365-1223

          Miss Deb! Nice to see you again.

          I've not been to either restaurant yet. Ephesus is now Sultan's (link below), and I understand that Gyros is run by Kurds from Turkey who felt that the Greek terms for their menu would have more market acceptance.
