Akdeniz is next to a 2 Bros Pizza and a fitness club called Swerve, but as soon as you walk into the narrow, one-room space, you’ll forget all about the unfortunate things that happen on 46th Street. This is a casual place with good Turkish food (like a tasty mixed grill kebab with rice), and you’ll find a few different pre-theater set menu deals as well as $30 bottles of wine.
