Cinar's celebration of Turkish cuisine: "Istanbul & Beyond"
Note: you can also book tickets by calling the restaurant: 201-523-9284.

Join us for a celebration of Turkey's glorious culinary abundance with the author and photographer of the upcoming cookbook "Istanbul & Beyond."

Turkish cuisine offers so much more than we could fit into one restaurant menu! So Cinar Turkish Restaurant is thrilled to welcome author Robyn Eckhardt and photographer David Hagerman on Oct. 19 at our restaurant in Emerson, N.J., just outside of Manhattan.

This special one-time-only feast celebrates their groundbreaking book, which finds delicious and surprising fare not only in Istanbul but also the villages, farms and high pastures of Turkey/s lesser-known areas.

Chef Yilmaz Ucar will prepare recipes from and inspired by the book, including rice-stuffed mussels, handmade bulgur dumplings with tomato and mint sauce and lamb meatballs with pumpkin and spice butter, as well as Cinar's own stuffed sun-dried eggplant. The Star-Ledger recently praised Ucar's "flair for food with roots deep in his homeland."

This one-time-only dinner will begin at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 19. Tickets are available for $60 and seating is limited. The ticket price includes a three-course family-style dinner with Eckhardt and Hagerman, tax, tip, and two glasses of Turkish wine or one Turkish draft beer. Cocktails and other wines and beer will be available for purchase from Cinar's full bar.

Signed cookbooks will be available for purchase.

We are accessible from Manhattan via New Jersey Transit buses (from NY Port Authority) and trains (from NY Penn Station, with a transfer at Secaucus). NJ Transit's Emerson station is a five-minute walk away.
