New Turkish restaurant~Marlboro

Does anyone have info on this? It's on Rt. 79, across the street from Osteria Rustica. I was at the light, and quickly glanced over and saw a sign that said Grand Opening. The names escapes me, but I did see Turkish cuisine. I tried googling, but no luck.

Anyone else know or have tried? Thanks!!

  1. Pure speculation on my part but hopefully some sort affiliation with the former Marmarma. Too bad that place closed. Seems like an odd location though.

    1. I'm sorry I don't have anything constructive to add to this but your post brought up an interesting question. Why is it "Turkish" cuisine? Why isn't it Turk cuisine? Are they trying to do a "spin" on Turk food?

      When a new Italian place opens it's not; Italian-ish, Chinese-ish, Thai-ish etc.

      Is the concept, we are bringing you food something like we eat in our home land of Turkey?

        Same reason its Turkish cigarettes and Turkish coffee and Turkish everything else. Jewish, Irish, Danish, Scottish...same thing.

      2. Is it in the same mall as CVS? This I got to check!

          Yes, wench!! That is where it is.

          I want to say it said "Safra" but I can't remember. I'm so there in a few days! lol

            I saw it driving by. Wife wouldn't let me stop. I'm pretty sure it was "Sofra". NOT in the same location as Romeo's... a few doors down to the right.

            I will check it out tomorrow when I go to the gym. Must be in the location where Romeo's pasta factory was.

          3. I stopped by and picked up a menu during the day. My husband took a peek inside and said that it looked fancy in there. Wine glasses, waiters dressed up and tablecloths. Wonder why they picked that spot? I uploaded menu. Hope you can read it!

              I just stopped by there and picked up a menu to upload but you beat me to it. I peeked inside because it wasn't open yet. It's much nicer than I expected it to be. The tables were set with white table cloths. I doubt I will be able to get Mr. Toonik to take me there so I will go with my friend when she gets back for a vacation. I hope it's good.

            2. Trying again! I hate computers!
