Ottoman Taverna, an expansive restaurant and bar marked by modern lighting fixtures, colorful tiles and rustic Middle Eastern accents, serves Mediterranean fare influenced by the Ottoman Empire. Expect mezze (appetizers/small plates) and dishes like lamb and beef kebabs with pita and yogurt sauce, sumac-crusted salmon with Turkish tabbouleh salad or braised lamb shank atop roasted eggplant stew. The bar pours global wines with many bottles hailing from Turkey, Lebanon and Israel.
