Back in July, Margaret posted that a new Turkish restaurant would be opening where the Golden Olive used to be (1712 N 45th St).
This past month, Bodrum opened! It’s the latest creation of chef-owner Sedat Uysal, who also runs Cafe Paloma in Pioneer Square. Also serving as chef is Pinar Özhal, and together they’re serving up traditional Anatolian (Turkish) cuisine in the “meyhane” style.
Sedat and Pinar met through the Seattle Turkish community, which numbers about 3,000.
Ask Sedat to draw a map of Turkey for you. He nails the coastline with remarkable detail.
