For a dozen years Efes Mediterranean Grill has been a popular venue for Middle Eastern food in New Brunswick. For the past nine years the Bodur family has been trying to open an Efes in Princeton.
That goal became a reality in February when the family opened a very casual version of Efes Mediterranean Grill in a small storefront restaurant on Nassau Street. With a few tables and booths and a very large soda case, it’s a tight fit, but that doesn’t seem to bother the customers who have been crowding in since the opening.
Looking around at the congenial crowd waiting for food served in-house or takeout one evening last week, family member Ekrem Bodur said, “We are glad that we are well received.”
