Hit-and-run restaurant-spinner Orhan Yegen has moved on, as is his wont, and in his wake the owners have regrouped, changing the name of this quick-service Turkish restaurant formerly known as Efendi, but keeping, for the most part, the menu. The bread doesn’t seem as fresh, but the classical mezes, meaty stews, and dishes like stuffed cabbage and moussaka, all served from a steam table, are as good as ever.
