The dining room at Pera is long and sleek, with plenty of big tables for groups and an open kitchen in the back. And the Mediterranean food here is pretty solid - try the big lamb kebab and the hummus served with paper-thin pita. Will everything cost a little more than you want it to? Of course. This is Midtown. But you can get a table easily, and it’s a perfectly good spot for an upscale meal with some people who aren’t necessarily your best friends. Clients, for example, or some nice strangers you met on an airplane.
