Not Istanbul, but do let me know if you pass through Zurich! :)

Reminds me of the Warren Buffett joke: "We've found that if you advertise an interest in buying collies, a lot of people will call hoping to sell you their cocker spaniels."

If you are still there - go to ASITANE - a restaurant near the chora church.

Ottoman fare derived from menus, shopping lists etc during the ottoman empire.

exquisite.

Try the rooftop seafood place at the Seven Hills hotel down in sultanahmet, right next to Four seasons. Looks all touristy, but the fare is actually amazing and prices reasonable for those views. +902125169497. Isaac
