Welcome to Dinner and a (Streaming) Movie! Each week for #TakeoutTuesday, we will collaborate with one of our Hot Spots restaurant partners to bring you delicious pickup and delivery food options along with a film selected by the chef preparing your meal!
This week, we’re featuring restaurant Turkitch, serving authentic family made Turkish street food, whose Turkish Pide / Flatbread can be paired with Winter Sleep, one of the most acclaimed Turkish films of the past decade.
Dinner Take-Out Pick
Turkitch – Turkish Kitchen is a family run start-up food company that serves authentic Turkish breakfast, baked goods, pastries, desserts and Turkish street foods. Established in 2016, Ozkan and his wife Feyzan moved to America from Istanbul, Turkey after winning the lottery. They settled and started to share their homemade Turkish dishes with neighbors and friends to express their hospitality. Not only did neighbors and friends love the dishes they shared, they insisted that they should start to sell their authentic Turkish recipes. Within one month, sixty trays of homemade baklava were sold and Turkitch was born.

“Winter Sleep, a great contemplative film about life in Turkey, needs to have accompanying delicious Turkish food. During this month of Ramadan, I’m highlighting our special Turkish Pide / Flatbread, but we also have many other tasty mediterranean/ healthy/Turkish food options available for pick-up or delivery on our menu.” – Owner Ozkan Yilmaz
Director: Nuri Bilge Ceylan
Aydin, a former actor, runs a small hotel in central Anatolia with his young wife, Nihal, with whom he has a stormy relationship, and his sister, Necla, who is suffering from her recent divorce. In winter, as the snow begins to fall, the hotel turns into a shelter but also an inescapable place that fuels their animosities.
