In February 2013 restaurant Sefa on Parc Avenue opened its doors. Specializing in Ottoman cuisine and run by a family from Istanbul, this high-quality restaurant provides an ambiance of comfort and calm that belies its busy street-side location.

Diyar Mayil and her sister Fatma were both trained in Ottoman cuisine in the restaurants of Istanbul. Her sister’s husband Sedat still owns a bistro and hostel there. Diyar’s background is in sculpting but she worked in a sushi restaurant when she first arrived in Montreal while her sister, a qualified architect, was working as a technician in an architectural office. Both sisters shared a dream of running a restaurant together.

One particularly bad day, the sisters called each other during their lunch break and decided then and there to look up listings online. They found their current location and were invited to visit that same day. “The owner was 96 years old, and he didn’t want to talk on the phone,” Diyar explains. When they saw the place the sisters fell in love with it. “If we hadn’t gone down that day,” Diyar confesses, “perhaps we would have never left our jobs.”
