Albany's Pine Hills getting new Mediterranean restaurant

Nearly ready for business
What once was a Bruegger's Bagels shop is in the process of becoming the Kismet Mediterranean Grill.

The venture, located at Madison Avenue and South Allen Street in Albany's Pine Hills neighborhood, may open within the next few weeks, according to owner-chef Chingiz Jafarov.

This is the first restaurant for the immigrant from Azerbaijan who has lived in the U.S. for 13 years.

“I hope to reach a lot of people who aren’t familiar with Mediterranean cuisine and introduce them to something I think they’ll love,” he said in a Times Union interview. “I’ve also spoken to a lot of people in the area and most seem to agree that we do need a good Mediterranean restaurant in the neighborhood.”
