La Camelia in East Providence
Went Friday for the first time since the new owners took over earlier this year. The decor has been spruced up a bit. Although it is now "of Turkey" (not Armenia), the menu is very similar and the food very good-warm pita, lots of meze-type offerings, large portions.. Still a small, family-run operation, with very friendly staff. It was pretty empty on Friday night and is the kind of restaurant I worry about surviving.
We dined at La Camelia too long ago to give useful current info (15-20 years?), but our meal was good and the service pleasant. It was a small family place then; the owner/husband/father sat down and had wine with us. I remember that they made their own bastirma; it was excellent. If we had a reason to visit East Providence, we probably would have visited more often.
