  1. To my knowledge, there is no Turkish or Middle Eastern restaurant in the immediate vicinity of Red Bank. For Falafel, there is Ibby's, in Freehold. And for very good Turkish food, there's Marmara, in Manalapan.

    1. I haven't been there in a while but there is a good Lebanese deli- Zaitooni- on Mechanic Street in downtown Red Bank. You order at a counter but they do have a few tables so you can eat there.

        I was at Zaitooni's a couple of weeks ago and I had a good spinach pie and a gyro sandwich. They also had some very nice looking sweets, but I have to watch my seal-ish figure ;o)

          We like Zaitooni a lot. Great food and nice people.
