SPECIAL TO THE RECORD
After seven years doing business as Lisa’s Turkish Kitchen on Chestnut Street in Ridgewood, Lisa Mayisoglu closed that location in July and reopened in December on Oak Street with a new name: Lisa’s Mediterranean Cuisine.
The days of belly dancing events are over (although Mayisoglu will provide them for private events if requested), with a new focus on an expanded menu and making her customers feel like they are in her own home.
A new pizza oven added to the kitchen lets Mayisoglu bake Turkish breads daily. She has several new dishes on the menu, including beef kebabs to supplement the many lamb and chicken specialties.
