Ulus 29, Istanbul
Tel: 90 212 265 6181
Concierge.com's insider take:
One thing Istanbul is not short of is fine-dining establishments with a view; the likes of 360 Istanbul, Leb-i derya, and Mikla are teeming year-round with the city's cosmopolitan cast of affluent models, actresses, moguls, and tycoons. Ulus 29 is no exception to the trendin fact, it's the leader. Conceived in a stylish modern Turkish theme by restaurateur-designers Metin and Zeynep Fadılloğlu, the restaurant and its adjoining bar contain among the most inventive and outrageous chandeliers in a city obsessed by cut-glass lighting. Situated in a far-flung residential hillside neighborhood overlooking the Bosphorus, Ulus 29 is surrounded by a small terrace garden that accommodates diners in clement weather, who otherwise peer at the sparkling view of the Asian shore from behind floor-to-ceiling windows. The menu covers a variety of cuisines, from a wide sushi selection to fresh lobster, plus in-house interpretations of indigenous dishes such as the Köfte 29 (meatballs) and the lamb medley with stuffed eggplant. The grouper carpaccio and duck and chicken liver parfait are worth a whirl, and two courses should be light enough to leave room for dessert.
