Gourmet Traveler's Restaurant Guide



Description:

Many of my readers have asked me, quite a lot of times, where to have a decent meal when they are in Istanbul. In fact, food turns out to be one of the most discussed elements of visitors' itineraries when it comes to traveling. It is with that purpose in kind that I have designed the following guide. Each day below represents a certain kitchen/cuisine or atmosphere that the restaurants underneath will represent. You may also want to check out the relevant blog entry I've made earlier on these restaurants:

Day 3 - Istanbul


Precious restaurants... without a category

These restaurants -as well as few others above- are precious restaurants that do not have enough others in their area to make up a certain big and one and only category. La Brise is a French bistro and Mimolett is an upper class, elite restaurant. Both are striving to do their best in becoming what they are trying to become: a typical bistro and a Michelin star restarurant.
