Pera Restaurant has it all:) Suffice to say -for the Turkish-food lovers & gourmet types- that there was even vegetarian manti (small Turkish dumplings with garlic yogurt & spiced dressing) on a MLK Day, which made my own day! Everything I had was delicious, creative...More

Food, genial service, neighborhood atmosphere all excellent. Our party of five included two who had been to Turkey several times and were pleased to find favorites rarely seen on these shores. A pleasure.
