I love Turkish cuisine. The creamy hommus, smoky babaganoush, and warm pita served like comforting blankets with delectable yogurt sauce….yum. Just the thought of swiping bits of the thin bread through these dips makes me want to run to the nearest Mediterranean restaurant (and I haven’t yet mentioned the hot appetizers and entrees!). Yes, my dears, Miss Ciao can be happy dining on pita and dips alone! That is, until my eye catches a colorful entrée at the next table. “Waiterrr!!!”
There were many things I loved about writing this review. First, the flavors and dishes were simple, fresh and a stray from the usual, and trying new dishes is what I’m all about. Second, Tava wasn’t as casual an atmosphere as most Mediterranean establishments. Thought went into the vibe and décor, which was decidedly chic. And our hosts were nice, welcoming and attentive. And no, they did not know I was reviewing them. How about that.
