Check out my new restaurant, Cafe Mangal in Wellesley

Last week I started a part-time waitressing job at Café Mangal, a Turkish/Mediterannean restaurant in Wellesley, Massachusetts. I advise you to check it out. Popular dishes include grilled red snapper with saffron rice and tomato sauce, chicken saute Milanese, and Australian rack of lamb. Lunches there are pretty casual, while dinners are fairly formal.

The family-run restaurant is small and intimate, and other nice touches include dim lighting, romantic music and a free cucumber, tomato, olive oil, green pepper and parsley appetizer served with bread. Of course the food is also also delicious.

Chef Mehmet Ozargun graduated from Johnson & Wales University in 2005, and has worked at several prominent restaurants in Turkey. His family in Turkey has worked in the hospitality industry since the 1800s, in bakeries, restaurants and spring water bottling and distribution.

Cafe Mangal has received a high Zagat rating the last three years, and local residents have voted it the best place to either eat lunch or dinner in Wellesley the last four years.
