Sitting on a quiet corner of Greenpoint’s McGolrick Park, Donia Café is the lone Middle Eastern restaurant in a heavily Polish area. The owners, a Turkish family who also own the Angel Food Market across the street, have outfitted the space comfortably with dark wood and exposed brick. A clay pitcher of lavender/rose petal/orange blossom water sits on each carved-copper or metal-tiled table, and a menu of hookahs further adds to the vibe. Classic dishes such as kabob, kifta, and lamb gyro platters are all nicely adorned by grilled vegetables, salad, and stuffed pita breads. American influences show themselves in the New York strip steak, a Hereford beef burger, and the housemade lasagna. The standout Tuscan chicken is tender white meat wrapped around tasty spinach and ricotta, accompanied by nicely chunky mashed potatoes, caramelized carrots, and a salad. Delightful fresh baklava (walnut or pistachio) pairs nicely with the selection of Turkish coffees and teas.
