Cafe Mangal - Boston Area Restaurants - Zagat Survey

America's most prestigious dining and shopping guide.

"Ladies who lunch in Wellesley" "jockey for the limited tables" at this "informal" Med-Turk cafe specializing in "scrumptious" salads and sandwiches alongside some American dishes; come nighttime, the "delightful" staff "converts the place" into a "serene oasis" for "intimate", "beautifully presented" dinners, when BYOB helps mitigate the "more expensive" checks.

"By day,this Turkish-slanted Mediterranean, run by a "lovely" "family", is "thehottest spot in Wellesley", as the "ladies who lunch" tolerate"terrible lines" for "unique sandwiches" and "pretty salads" - but bynight, it's an intimate", "still-undiscovered gem" whose "rich","elegant" creations are "worth every penny" (though BYO saves a few); no wonder you may "feel like you're doing thousands of miles away" -there's "nothing like it around."
