Dinner Destination-Turkey

  • Feb 12, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Dinner Destination is a monthly event which allows us to explore the multitude of ethnic foods available in the St. Louis area. Along with trying some new dishes, we will also discuss various aspects of the culture in the countries we "visit."

This event is for dues-paying members only. If you would like to attend, but have not yet paid your dues, please do so before the event.

This month we'll be exploring Turkish cuisine in the beautiful atmosphere of Aya Sofia, located on Chippewa in south city. Check out their menu

From the RFT:

"'Turkey coma' takes on a whole new meaning at this Turkish/Mediterranean restaurant that relentlessly tempts. Appetizer platters are resplendent with salt-of-the-earth goodness, while main courses are typically beef or lamb over rice or couscous. While most of Aya Sofia's dishes bear a close-cousin resemblance to other Eurasian delicacies such as spanakopita and gyros, the staff is quite fluent at helping to decipher and navigate the menu as needed."

Important information: Please read below

    I hate to cancel, but I'm not sure I'll have a reliable vehicle by tomorrow evening. I want to give someone else time to get my spot! :-)

    I got a tip that this restaurant does not split bills or take multiple credit cards. Please be sure to bring cash on the night of the event!
