Healthiest Menu 


Those vegans think they've got the lock on healthful food. Have they never heard of the Mediterranean diet? Name one ingredient on Bosphorus' menu that doesn't just sing out "healthy living": Eggplant. Tomato. Grilled lamb. Spinach. Lemon. Red onion. Extra-virgin olive oil. Suffice it to say that if you don't order the sigara boregi (deep-fried feta egg rolls) or the sugar-drenched desserts, pick any other five dishes off the menu and you'll have assembled a feast your doctor would approve of. We're partial to the antioxidants in the meze platter, the omega-6 fatty acids in the taramasalata, the chicken kebabs (moist and low in saturated fats), and, to drink, the polyphenol-rich red wine or Turkish coffee.
