A Turkish Turnaround in Centereach

Istanbul Café in Centereach changed hands late last year and is much improved, cnut writes. Especially good at this Turkish restaurant are izgara kofte (grilled ground-meat patties), wrapped in fresh flatbread. Unfortunately, they come without sauce; ask for cacik (yogurt-cucumber dip) on the side, cnut advises.

Overall, he adds, this place bests a couple of nearby Turkish standouts, Konak in Farmingville and Angora in Medford.
