Truva leases former Steak and Ale in Downtown ATL
Newly opened Truva is bringing a taste of the Mediterranean to the hustle and bustle of Downtown Atlanta. Occupying the former Steak & Ale location at the corner of International Boulevard and Peachtree Center Avenue, Truva (meaning "Turkey" in Turkish) is open for lunch and dinner with a continental Mediterranean menu, seafood and steak and a mezza buffet.
Samplings from the dinner menu include a variety of cold and warm mezes such as yaprak sarmasi, vegan stuffed grape leaves with a mixture of rice, pine nuts, and herbs; etli borek, a mixture of lamb, beef and herbs wrapped in phyllo dough; and karides guvee, a Truvian shrimp casserole. The main dish portion of the menu boasts a variety of kabobs as well as gunun baligi, fresh whole fish of the day; kuzu pirzok, roasted young rack of lamb; and tavuk topkapi, chicken breast stuffed with rice, currants and nuts.
The two-level lounge offers a full bar of beer, wine and liquor drinks, and the Ed Seiber-designed décor pleases with comforting blues, shiny silvers and gold and red accents. After 10 p.m., Truva get lively when the belly dancers hit the floor.
