Matbah Mediterranean Cuisine

The latest addition to block full of global eats



Lamb shank with root vegetables

The 800 block of Elm Street in Manchester has become a global village for dinners.

Recent immigrants from Istanbul have opened an authentic Turkish restaurant on Elm Street.

The former pizza shop has been transformed into a pleasant spot complete with a handsome bar. Owner Omer Yasan has a history of working in his family’s restaurants and here, with his wife Cigdem, they are offering a taste of home, all of it beautifully plated with Cigdem’s sense of food styling. Beef and lamb kebabs to Mediterranean sea bass to their classic lamb shank with root vegetables (pictured here, $11.99) are offered. Refreshing salads and a very tasty lemon soup are also part of the limited, but nicely executed menu. Dessert is a classic baklava made in-house. They offer a few beers on tap, plus a small wine list that includes wines from abroad. No spirits are available at this point. To ensure success, the restaurant is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
