Fodor's Expert Review Sofyalı 9

$$ Beyoglu Turkish

With Greek music playing in the background, photographs of old Istanbul on the walls, and friendly, laid-back surroundings on a lively backstreet in Beyoğlu's Asmalımescit area, the quaint atmosphere here elevates the classic meyhane food. The meze, whether from the regular menu or the daily specials, and the hot appetizers are more notable than the main dishes; try the zucchini with walnuts in yogurt, or the Albanian-style fried liver. A limited menu is served during lunch on weekdays.
