Bad news Chowhounds! The Turkish Restaurant - A Family Place, in Bristol, where we had one of our events, has closed. I spoke with the former owner - he still owns the Turkish Deli further north on Route #13 - he said that it was too much of a problem finding and keeping good chefs and waitstaff.
The good news is that there is a new Turkish Restaurant, called the Black Sea, just across the road from the Turkish Deli. The Black Sea is not only a restaurant, but also a deli and halal meat market. The bad news is that it is not as good as the Turkish restaurant - A Family Place. The service is not as polished or as friendly and the menu is not as varied. But, if you're in the mood for a kebab, and you're near Bristol, you can find satisfaction!
