Turkish Airlines just started offering non-stop flights to Istanbul, but do you really want to spend a couple thousand dollars just to nibble on some Ottoman-approved cuisine? Luckily, now you don’t need to rack up a big credit card charge or leave the District to enjoy the country’s fabulous Eurasian fare. Turkish Restaurant Week, which runs through September 25, offers a taste of Turkey at an affordable price point.

Diners enjoy a three-course lunch for $20 or a four-course dinner for only $30 (not including tax, gratuity or beverages). Seven restaurants are participating – Agora Restaurant, Café Divan, Ezme Restaurant & Wine Bar, The Levante’s, Meze Restaurant & Lounge, Rosemary’s Thyme Bistro DC and Zaytinya – and each one will be offering a special menu for the week. Best of all, there’s no jetlag involved.

Further details are available on the event’s official website or you can follow @DCTurkRestoWeek on Twitter for the latest news.
