On Thursday night, Jon and I went to a really fun and interesting talk on the history of cookies at the 92nd Street Y. (More info on that to come.) But before dessert, you've got to have dinner, so we ducked into a cozy little place called Peri Ela for some really tasty Turkish food.
Sorry...I couldn't help but make the They Might Be Giants reference.
Zucchini pancakes with dill and garlic yogurt sauce. Smooth and spicy red lentil soup.
Grilled, Turkish-spiced lamb with potatoes, rice, and peppers. Beef dumplings topped with garlic yogurt sauce. Crispy, flaky, tasty baklava.
What a perfect meal for a cold and rainy New York night!
