- What’s On
Inhabiting the ground floor of the new Morgans Hotel, 10 Karaköy, the hotel and the eponymous restaurant is the brainchild of Rudolf Van Nunen, an executive chef at many five-star hotels in Istanbul. Come for dinner (booking strongly advised) or sip on a cocktail from the rooftop bar, which overlooks the Bosphorus – and to make sure his guests get the most spectacular view on all fronts, Van Nunen even had the roofs of the buildings in front re-tiled.
A full menu is accentuated by exotic ingredients, from hibiscus to gold leaf, at this new hotspot which has a clubroom feel (continues Andrew Finkel). A pre-meal offering is an excellent duck foie gras, but it is the main courses that really impress. Try the dry aged rib-eye steak or the black cod cured in lemongrass miso sauce. As for the wine list, there is a very decent own-label house red and white, blended to the chef’s taste at the Corvus winery.
