Is there a noble soul who has tried all/most/several Turkish restaurants in Chicago and can advise me?
The hubs and I will be in town next month for 2 nights (Fri-Sat). We desperately need Turkish food for dinner on one of those nights. On our last visit, we went to Cafe Orchid and loved it - I would definitely go again - but is that my best bet in Chicago?
Note that I just want stellar food - I don't care about decor or entertainment. And it's gotta be true Turkish food, not pan-Middle Eastern or Mediterranean. Price is no object, which means that really cheap food is fine, as long as it's great.
So, here are all the Turkish restaurants that I know about:
- Cafe Orchid ( http://www.cafeorchid.com )
- Cousin's/Efes Cafe
- Sortie ( http://www.sortiechicago.com )
- Turkish Cuisine and Bakery ( http://www.turkishcuisine.net )
- Turquoise Cafe ( http://www.turquoisedining.com )
Which should I choose? Are they any others I should know about?
