Fodor's Review

Mezes in this trendy and attractive spot change seasonally and even daily, and put a clever international spin on traditional favorites—a gazpacho-like, basil-infused version of acılı ezme (red pepper spread) is served in a shot glass—while others, such as sea bream with chickpeas and mustard sauce, are friendly chef-owner Gençay Üçok's unique creations. Though slightly overshadowed by the inventive mezes, main dishes include standouts like lamb sirloin

with baked potatoes and beets and a delicious variation on sea bass cooked in paper. The popular venue seats just 38, so make reservations as far as a week in advance.
