I travel heavily for work. I therefore have to eat in restaurants a lot. This was a walk up. It is excellent. On par with any great cafe in Europe. Try the veal tenderloin with a nice red wine. Bon A petit.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
