Asitane

Asitane Review

One of Istanbul's most distinctive restaurants serves seasonally changing menus based on the traditional cuisine of the Ottoman court, which the venue's owners have carefully researched over the past two decades. Dishes feature unusual combinations of ingredients, such as eggplant stuffed with quail, or baked melon with a pilaf and ground meat filling. The historical versions of more familiar contemporary Turkish dishes, like stuffed grape leaves with sour cherries, also make appearances. The atmosphere is elegant, service exceptional, and there's a pleasant, shaded courtyard open in summer. Asitane is conveniently located next to the Kariye Müzesi.
