Nestled on the Upper West Side, Turkuaz is a fusion between authentic Turkish cuisine and Mediterranean flavors, served in an ethnic ambiance. Turkuaz opened in the fall of 2000 with a vision of creating Upper West Side's finest authentic Turkish cuisine experience. Ever since, our unique decor and friendly servers have hosted many pleasant evenings, lunches and brunches. Turkuaz is as close as you can get to an escape.

"The mezes to start were excellent -- get anything with eggplant. The mains -- which, in our group ranged over the dumplings, stuffed cabbage, and kebabs were all excellent and we happily traded tastes around the table. Service was a trifle slow at the start, but the host volunteered a complimentary baklava. Those who had intended to skip the sweet were quite pleased to have that dessert indulgence forced on them. Delicious."

"Our table covered different aspects of the menu, and all were well received. Pasta with the short rib ragu; trout schnitzel; brick-pressed chicken; swordfish; the bar steak. Tastes were traded around approvingly, followed by self-made promises to get next time what some other person was having now. Service was attentive and helpful. The room's a bit noisy and the tables can be tight but for before Lincoln Center it's very, very good."

HENRY's is a modern American bistro located on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Our gracious and spacious Dining Room, Bar and Sidewalk Cafe are designed after the Arts & Crafts masterpiece, the Gamble House with mahogany wainscoting and French doors. The walls are filled with bright, food-themed poster art from the Herman Miller Company's Summer Picnic series. HENRY's is the restaurant that one of New York's greatest neighborhoods deserves. We serve an extensive menu of contemporary American bistro food for Lunch, Brunch, Dinner and Late Night. Our bar offers an all-American wine program based on the discovery of delicious wines at accessible prices. We serve an exciting cocktail list, bottled beer on ice and fresh craft beers. HENRY's management and staff meet here every day of the year (except Christmas) to offer our loyal Guests the gift of our work and the value of our experience. We offer great food and beverage at a reasonable price with healthy portions of abundant service.

"Henry's is a very solid performer in the neighborhood, and it's great to have a kitchen open for late night dining. The brunch menu covers a variety of tastes, and is capably rendered. At brunch, service was attentive, not hovering; coffee was ample, and there was no pressure to turn over the table, allowing for a leisurely meal. One member of the otherwise accommodating waitstaff, however, attempted to enforce a "no substitutions" policy to the point of denying the availability of an egg-white omelette with a choice of fillings. That was resolved with a manager, but such intervention should not have been required. And, with the size of serving plates, they probably could have put our party of 6 at a larger table."
