Here it is…the list of my favorite Istanbul restaurants organized by neighborhood and other useful categories. There are exactly 36 entries on this list. Some are uber-hip while some are small neighborhood classics. I hope you have a chance to visit all 36 while you are here. Fish restaurants are not included on this list as I feel that Istanbul's fish and raki fans merit an entire post of their own. Read on to find out which restaurants made my list.
You can click on the images below to see the neighborhood + NAME plus link to each restaurant's page. I have arranged the photos by neighborhood starting with Istanbul's hip district Karakoy. I have included selections from Karakoy, Taksim, Beyoglu, Pera, Nisantasi, Etiler, Levent, Ulus, Kurucesme, Arnavutkoy, Bebek and Emirgan.
Enjoy the list and let me know what your favorites are…
