Kubi Gonul wants his new bistro/cafe to be a gathering place for Agricola Street's residents and passersby. The bright red-and-blue 
Agora—which will open in the former Orphan Books at 2394 Agricola Street in July— isn’t Gonul’s first foray in the Halifax restaurant industry: He was once the owner of downtown favourite Turkish Delight (5680 Spring Garden Road).

But this time around he’s focussing on the cuisine of Turkey’s Aegean region—where fresh veggies, herbs and olive oil are main players and quality wins over quantity every time. Agora—named for the Hellenic word referencing a place of assembly for artistic, political and spiritual conversation—aims to be a quiet-but-social spot for people to catch up, study and indulge in healthy dishes. And it will boast a sunny backyard terrace, which never hurts.
