bulgarian on canal - an hallucination
- jen kalb
thought I saw a place with a sign "bulgarian
restaurant" driving across Canal Street very late last
night - think its name was something like "Mechanas"
and it was on a southeat corner of Canal with Bway,
Centre St or such. Was this a mirage?
thanks so much Jessica - it was no dream, it was
(according to Robt's column, 416 B.C. a "mehanata" or
little tavern, located at 416 Bway, corner of Canal.
As I noted, it now has a great big "Bulgarian
Restaurant" sign, or I would never have spotted it.
My question to Robt is this - is it worthy of a visit
solely because it is the only Bulgarian in town, or
because it compares favorably to our other

Thanks Jessica, Jen, and Robert for pointing this place
out -- I missed the review in August; I think I was out
of town that week. I ate lunch at BC 416 today and came
away quite happy. The Kyopolu is extraordinary -- one
of the nicest flavors to come down the pike in a while.
And a very good mixed grill.
Note: if you go for lunch and they don't seem to be
open, be persistent: when I arrived, I could open the
front door but there was a closed iron gate in front of
the inner door. But I called from the pay phone on the
corner (their # is on the awning), and the waitress
came down and opened it for me. I guess they were in
the middle of opening.
