Since Limon opened a few weeks ago I've been twice. Everything we tried was just delicious. The lamp chops were the best I've ever tried and the whole grilled mediterranean sea bass was cooked to perfection. Also, all of the cold appetizers we tried were great - especially the hummus, eggplant and the tirama. The restaurant is cozy and the wait staff is very attentive. All this and the prices are very reasonable. After we went for dinner my husband took the delivery menu and ordered the wraps off the lunch menu for a work lunch and loved them too.

I took a trip to Istanbul earlier in the summer and was blown away by the food in Turkey. I discovered Limon via menupages and tried the food immediately (I had been craving Turkish) - I dined there on the 2nd day they were open and was so excited about the fresh food and the authentic flavors. I love the byob (wish it could last forever) and can't wait to bring my bottle of Raki I picked up in Istanbul. We ordered the hummus, grape leaves and the salad - delicious! The lamb entree was cooked to a medium-rare perfection and the prices are great. I'll be heading back in the next week, and wanted to give them a great review because this is the best Turkish cuisine I've ever found in Manhattan. The space is tiny and basic, but it's really all about the food.

This place just opened around the corner from my apt (where 101 used to be) and I can't say enough good things about it. The food was excellent - probably the best lamb I have ever eaten and I got a mixed meze plate that was delicious. My friend got the grilled whole fish which was also very tasty. The place is small but not cramped or packed (not yet at least!) with a very cozy feel about it. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable and gave us some baklava on the house (yum). Until they get their liquor license, it's byob as an added bonus! I will definitely be going back here and ordering delivery often - a great addition to the neighborhood!
