Last spring we told you about Bereket, an tiny authentic Turkish eatery tucked behind a gas station in Bridgeport. This fortuitous find primarily offered takeout, but if you were lucky enough to get one of the 3 small tables, you were served food worthy of an Ottoman emperor. While we loved hiding out behind the Citgo station, we were pleased to hear that owner Selahattin Cinar had moved his very reasonably priced menu and talented cooks to a much larger space in Blackrock (the old Helados Vazquez). With an upgraded interior worthy of the excellent fare, Selahattin can now focus on the customer experience...and a more gracious host you've never seen. Warm up your car for a quick departure to Bridgeport.
Now open for 2 months, it seems the word is out. Bereket iwas packed to capacity for lunch by 12:30 on our last visit, and Selahattin iwas greeting old friends and introducing himself to new arrivals. While the food is the same (Read our Bereket review from 2010), there are a few noteworthy additions to the experience.
Every Saturday night @ 8:30, Belly dancers grace the dining room completing Bereket's immersive Middle Eastern flavor. Also, Bereket is now BYOB. Enjoy a taste of Istanbul right here in Bridgeport.
