Great Turkish in Huntington

Island Girl | Sep 6, 2001 01:12 PM

The Village of Huntington has for the last few months been the home of Kebabi Alem Professional Kebab House. The chef/co-owner, Orhan Yegen, was the creative force behind three Turkish restaurants in Manhattan (Turkish Kitchen, Deniz, Dervish) that raised the bar for Middle Eastern dining in the metro area. Like them, Kebabi Alem is beautifully appointed, professionally staffed, and serves delicious food that is many cuts above most Turkish and Middle Eastern restaurants. The phrase "kebab house" sells the place short.

Full disclosure: I'm a journalist who's written about Kebabi Alem. I'm posting this today because the restaurant was closed for construction for two weeks (the landlord was working on the upper floors) and it has just reopened. Long Islanders shouldn't miss it.
