    This place is out of control unreal. The interior is so sexy, there is not a single thing on the menu I know how to pronounce but there’s not a single thing I ate that wasn’t the best food I’ve ever eaten in my life. My husband can speak Turkish and every waiter, staff member, manager he spoke to was so endearing and kind and helpful. If we didn’t almost implode from eating so much I would still be there trying more food. Y’all are god’s gift to DC.
