Meyhane traces its roots back to the cosmopolitan history of Istanbul as a space where people come together to eat delicious mezes and drink their troubles away. What defines the Meyhane experience are the long-lasting conversations, moments that are not rushed, and a sense of belonging in a community. Chef Ralfi Berk, coming from a Sephardic Jewish family in Turkey, discovered a familiar feeling of authenticity in the Japanese Izakaya experience and created a meyhane menu inspired from it.
