I want clean authentic food for lunch, best ingridents, HELP! Where, why, what's good and why?
Turkish Cuisine on Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains is a solid choice. Good dips, salads and kebabs.
Not sure if it's open for lunch, but I had a good meal at Shiraz on Route 119 in Elmsford. It's Persian, but definitely has some Middle Eastern accents.
Turkish Cuisine is virtually a take out restaurant with some tables jammed in the back. Not saying that in a bad way, but it's very different from Shiraz, which is much nicer in terms of ambience.
Both are good, both are open for lunch. I think the food at Turkish Cuisine is a bit better.
Both are BYOB if that's relevant.
You might investigate Turkish Meze in Mamaroneck, a solid choice: http://www.turkishmeze.com/
I've been to Nikos (Greek restaurant) on Central Ave in White Plains many times. The place is pleasant, but the food is not as good as the above options: http://www.nikostaverna.com/
My favorite in Westchester is Turkish Meze in Mamaroneck. The service is always friendly and I think the food is delicious. This is the only place where I actually eat grape leaves. The eggplant is wonderfully smoky and smooth. I haven't been for lunch in awhile, they may have a special deal. I've sent many people there and everyone's liked it. Enjoy your lunch!
