Walking into the empty dining room, we could see how this place could be warm and cozy when full of people, as it is in the pictures on their Facebook page. It is a big open room decorated in warm umber and dark reds with a pleasant vibe about it. But without all of those happy, smiling, heat-emitting patrons, it was quite chilly where we sat. Fortunately Bosphorus serves Turkish tea ($2) and coffee ($5). The tea was hot, fragrant from a variety of leaves, and served in a stylish glassware. It was not a lot of tea, but a good way to warm up and prepare for the meal. The Turkish coffee was strong and frothy, with a little sugar to balance the bitterness, served in the traditional ornate-yet-diminutive cup and saucer, but it seemed a bit too diminutive for $5-a problem with a few of the dishes we had at Bosphorus.
