The Indy Weekly has taken a great new path in highlighting local restaurants every week - this week, they've selected Troy Mezze, located in Downtown's City Market area. If you haven't been, we highly recommend it!
"Rubbed coral walls, dangling, jewel-like pendant lights and a cozy banquette nook help erase the memory of the space's ambitious but doomed predecessors and set a mood reminiscent of a Middle Eastern bazaar. Since it's open at lunch, dinner and late night, the eatery seeks to be a lot of things to a lot of people, and Denk delivers, for the most part, with food and diversions.
The dinner menu is varied, with plenty of offerings for carnivores and vegetarians. Denk and head cook Sahin Ibis, formerly of Talulla's in Chapel Hill, grind the lamb for kebabs ($15) in-house, adding cumin and garlic with a deft touch. Lamb ($16) and beef ($15) skewers are perfectly pink inside, nicely charred on the outside. If you go to Troy Mezze looking for Mediterranean-style lamb chops or beef and chicken kebabs, you won't be disappointed. Don't be shy about asking for extra tzatziki, though. Our platter's small serving of the cucumber sauce failed to match the generous portions of meat."
