Flatbreads and spit-grilled meats have grabbed hounds’ attention at Hazar Turkish Kebab in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Barry Strugatz says the chicken gyro sandwich is excellent. Jim Leff agrees on the gyro (both chicken and lamb), which he finds tasty and “sort of refined.” But he singles out Hazar’s pide—a pizzalike flatbread made with cheese, egg, ground lamb, or sausage—as “really superb” and adds that all the kebabs and meze (small plates) look awfully tempting.

grouchomama went big, scaling up to a spread for 200 people, and wasn’t disappointed. “Love it,” she says—especially the grilled meats. “Great service, everything fresh.”
