Whoever told you that carbs were a bad thing has never been to Beyoglu on the Upper East Side (and has an open invitation to dine with me there any time!)

The distinctly self-identified “not Turkish restaurant” or in the owner’s words, “meze house,” serves the best Mediterranean food this side of the Atlantic.

Get the bread and mezze platter - you won’t be sorry because the tzatziki is to die for.
