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.

Menu detail

Kaymak and honey
Small Plate
This is one of our favorite things to serve. It's a labor of love. Turkish clotted cream (kaymak), honey, and sea salt. A decadent finish to a great meal.
Pastry, custard filled borek
Dessert
This is an invention of our own. We make a borek with mahlab custard and serve it with a Persian tart cherry compote.
Hummus with lamb meatballs
Small Plate
Lots of flavor, super comforting, our favorite way to serve hummus.
Pastry, feta and dill scones
Small Plate
It's the most comforting form of eating feta!
Jilbir
Small Plate
Jilbir is an egg and yogurt dish. We like to serve it as a component in our brunch entree. This time, we're serving it with a stew of favas called ful.
