Going to NYC in a few days, and while I used to live in NY, I haven't been there since I developed a taste for iskender kebap in Istanbul. I looked on Yelp but there seems to be a lot of disagreement on iskender in Manhattan Turkish restaurants. What do the chowhounders think? Would prefer to go somewhere in Manhattan since I'm a bit time-constrained.
Also, I don't think there's anywhere in NY that makes turkish delight in-house, but if anyone knows of one, please spill!

    well since no one has replied i will suggest istanbul grill. they have it. its just ok, nothing earth shaking, but will fill a craving. lower your expectations, its not as good as in istanbul.

    best thing there is the chorba lentil soup.

    i dont know what to tell you about the lokum. i have some i bought fresh in the fridge from a trip to istanbul, buzz my apt and i will bring a bit down for you lol!
