Turkish Food

My husband and I are planning a visit to NY in a few weeks and I wanted to find out if there are any Turkish restaurants you would recommend that serve either kunefe or ekmek kadayif as desserts?

      Not sure if these restaurants serve what you are looking for, but Ali Baba on 34th street is great and Turkish Kitchen is good too.

    2. I like Ali Baba, but I'm not sure if they have either dessert you mention:

      1. You could try calling Peri Ela, on Lexington between 90th and 91st. 212-410-4300. It's a lovely little place.

        1. Via MenuPages, here is a list of Turkish restaurants. You can check the menus to see which ones serve the desserts you are looking for.

          1. Again don't know about the particular desserts, but Taksim on 2nd Ave around 54th is really super. And affordable!
