The legacy of the cuisine of Istanbul, the capital of four empires, is greater than meets the eye. It's Istanbul Modern. We tell the story. In this series, we will showcase Eastern Mediterranean home cooking with mezes and main dishes that grandma would make. We want to offer a home-cooked meal, no frills, just good flavor for a fun, comforting yet adventurous weeknight. Vegeterian option available, please let us know in advance.
