Kadir is a restaurant owner, in which he and his wife commonly cook and serve traditional food to customers in New York City.
Kadir hurried his wife to place the finishing touches on a dish, ready to serve to their client. He walked to Alexandra Reid's table and presents the food, waiting for her critique. When she made a comment that his wife's cooking was better than dishes from Constantinople, Kadir corrected her, telling her that she meant the present-day capital Istanbul.
