Alaturco Mediterranean Grill opened for business last August. On this evening, the restaurant was fairly quiet, as might be expected during this week of public schools' spring break, when so many families have sensibly vamoosed to somewhere warmer and sunnier. Plus, it was a Tuesday, and a cold, gray one, at that.
"But it won't be our last!" one of them laughed. They had ordered Iskender and Hunkar Begendi and each had enjoyed their dinner choices.
Alaturco is located at 2007 Doubleday Avenue (Route 50) in Ballston Spa., next to a Dunkin Donuts. It offers a reasonable assortment of bottled beer and wines, along with Turkish coffee and teas. Alaturco serves brunch on weekends until 2:00 PM. Take-out and free area delivery are also available. They have a website and a Facebook page.
With summer coming up, SPAC patrons take note: an Alaturco take-out dinner would make an awesome summer lawn picnic and it is only about four miles south of Spa State Park. Check them out when you are in the area.
