The 38 Essential #Istanbul #Restaurants


Few cities have the immense, intense character of Istanbul. It has been home to many nations, ethnicities, and cultures, all of which are reflected in the city’s cuisine. The dining options are infinite in their variety, from classic street carts to mind-blowing rooftop fine dining, a strong cup of Turkish coffee to surprising Turkish wines, a humble simit to perfect meatballs. Vibrant, delicious, bold, hip, yet subtle: beware, Istanbul can be addictive. As French antiquarian Petrus Gyllius wrote of Constantinople in 1561, “It seems to me that while other cities may be mortal, this one will remain as long as there are men on earth.” Istanbul — there is no place like it.
