“Ethnic Fine Dining- A Frederick First”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Despite being a dining destination- Frederick has been a cultural desert- when it comes to global cuisine. Finally, we have something to crow about - with Nezih Pistar's ode to his heritage- Ayse. With a clean renovation of the aging Danielle's and a cool vibe- the new space seems born again. For a new establishment- food came quickly and service was quick to apologize for any opening gaffs. The bar seemed spruced up, but it was the dining space that was the most striking- with an inspired and lengthy menu - with most being excellent. The dining space lighting was less inspired- too bright to feel intimate. Regardless, required dining for those near or far.
