Don’t let the beige motif fool you. With its vinyl banquettes and campy Mediterranean music, a La Turca is a Turkish diner with personality. But really, you’re here for the food. Mezes include greatest hits like baba gannouj, hummus, grape leaves, and kibbeh, though a table with an appetite should go for the chef’s-choice sampler for an off-menu selection. This is the place to go for kebab cravings, whether it’s variations on lamb or chicken cooked over an open flame. Falafels are pillowy inside, with a light, crisp exterior. The guilty pleasure is the doner, a Turkish spin on the gyro, with tomatoes, a garlic sauce, and an array of toppings for the condiment fiend. Happy hours feature deals such as two-for-one drinks and a small selection of mezes.
