Best Turkish and Greek in NYC

Taking out our two teenage daughters who both love Turkish and Greek food - looking for a fun place - lively - a bit of a scene - good food and in the range of $30 to $50 per person.

        1. re: ShinjukuAce

          RGR had recommended Turkish Kitchen to me last week, and it was great. It's on Third Ave between 27th and 28th, a very hopping young area. The food was great, my friends I met there all loved it, and it certainly has a trendy look/vibe.

        2. My 2 favorite Turkish places are Sip Sak at 49th & 2nd and Beyoglu at 81st & 3rd.

          1. For Greek, I'm a big fan of Uncle Nick's Ouzaria on 9th avenue. You can get an assortment of small plates, which can be fun. You can easily get lots of small plates and stay under $30 each. I particularly like the baked tomato with feta, the seafood plate, the spicy meatballs in tomato sauce, and they have some excellent lamb dishes. Plus, you can always go the flaming cheese route, which is exciting.
