The legacy of Istanbul, once Constantinople, the capital of four empires, is greater than meets the eye. It's the Bosphorus, Black Sea, the Aegean, and the Mediterranean; Mesopotamia, Balkans, Anatolia, Caucasus, North Africa, and Persia. It's the palace and the countryside, the business capital and the cultural capital. It's a little Turkish, a little Greek, Armenian, Jewish, Arabic and Persian. It's Istanbul Modern. We tell the story. This is a sample menu and the contents are dynamic.

Menu detail

Babka with olives and sundried tomatoes
Small Plate
We break bread at our tables with a savory babka that we serve with olive oil that we produce in conjunction with Skipstone Ranch in Alexander Valley

Meze, the Wild Card

We keep one Meze open for our creative process, a product that inspires us at the farmers market, or something that one of our other Middle Eastern specialty purveyors are excited about.
Meze, the Wild Card
Small Plate
We keep our mezes flexible and creative for a product that inspires us at the farmers market, or something that one of our other Middle Eastern specialty purveyors are excited about.
Entree, 72 hours short ribs with wild pistachio sauce
Entree
Wild pistachios are a unique product from South Eastern Turkey. They have deep pistachio, chocolate, and coffee flavors. We bring these earthy flavors together with mushrooms and the most unctuous beef experience. Perfectly marbled sous vide short ribs are served medium rare with this sauce.
Dessert, Antep pistachio pie with milk ice cream and ‘bird shit’ pistachios
Dessert
We have traveled long and far but have not seen pistachios as beautiful and delicious as those in Antep. We wanted to share this uniquely intense pistachio flavor with you.
'Liqueur', the Finale
Beverage
We finish our meals with a home made liqueur. We've served cherry/mahlab, mastica, bergamot and Turkish coffee liqueurs before. We'll have to see which one of our infusions have matured at the time of the event.
