Fodor's Expert Review Aheste

$$$$ Beyoglu Eclectic

A casual café by day and an inviting bistrolike venue by night, stylish Aheste (meaning "slowly" in Persian) offers a small but appealing menu consists mainly of hot and cold meze with some Persian, Ottoman, and Middle Eastern influences with contemporary twists; the sea beans with smoked yogurt and rose petals and the wild rice with currants and herbs are particularly tasty. Prices are a bit high for the portion size, but the friendly, laid-back service and hip-yet-cozy atmosphere make up for it.
