Turks and Frogs Tribeca information
A tongue-in-cheek name that refers to the Turkish and French antiques that decorate this winsome bistro (run by the same folks who own the Turks and Frogs wine bar in the West Village). While the decor is mixed, the food's unabashedly Turkish: meze appetizers, endless varieties of hummus, eggplant and olives, plus great mains such as ground lamb dumplings, red mullet with arugula, thinly sliced oregano lamb, or chunks of lamb in tomato sauce with baby eggplant.
