Owner Osman Cakir operated this antiques shop for three years before deciding it could serve triple duty, incorporating a wine bar and restaurant. In addition to the Turkish and French pottery, visitors will find more than 120 wines (including some from Cakir’s native Turkey) and a small menu of Mediterranean foods. He’s also packed an antique couch, a small bar and a few tables into the 800-square-foot space.
