If you're serious about Turkish food, it's worth making the ferry trip across the Bosphorus to Kadıköy for a meal at Çiya. Chef Musa Dağdeviren collected recipe ideas from Turkey's farthest corners for his meze, stews, and kebabs. Look for the lentil kofte, the seasonal ayva ıvığı (quince stew), or the nizip yoğurtlusu, a dish of meatballs served in garlic yogurt with soaked pita bread. The restaurant, situated in the middle of a bustling market area, is very casual, with diners perched on benches outside in warm weather. Be aware that alcohol is not on the menu, with the exception of beer served discreetly in mugs.—Vanessa Able
