Trodos, a Westbury Mediterranean restaurant that was part of the Ayhan’s empire, has metamorphosed into Ayhan’s Shish Kebab, joining siblings in Port Washington, Plainview and Baldwin. The Westbury place made its debut as Trodos back in 2010, shortly after the Ayhan’s Shish Kebab within Mall at the Source closed.
Bill Menzel, speaking for head honcho Ayhan Hassan, currently out of the country, said the Trodos concept of a “more upscale Mediterranean” restaurant wasn’t quite what people wanted. Popular demand, he said, was for the more “family-oriented” experience at a somewhat lower price point traditionally offered by the Ayhan’s Shish Kebab restaurants.
Typical dishes from the Ayhan's menu include a cold appetizer sampler of hummus, babaganoush, taramasalata and tabbouleh ($8.95), moussaka ($17.50) and a kebab trio featuring shrimp, filet mignon and chicken ($22.95). The Trodos crew remains in place.
Ayhan’s Shish Kebab is at 477 Old Country Rd., Westbury, 516-222-8000.
