Yeni means “new” and lokanta means “eatery”. Renowned chef-owner Civan Er opened the doors of his restaurant in 2013, firmly aligning it with the movement of New Turkish Cuisine. Two years on and the restaurant has become a local classic. The menu offers original dishes, –Anatolian in style yet still contemporary – that are utterly delicious. It’s only a stone’s throw from Istiklal and an ideal spot for foodies.
In Beyoğlu, on the majestic Istiklal Street, you’ll discover shops, eateries and the leading contemporary Turkish art galleries and institutions. As night falls, particularly in the Tunel district, bistros, cocktail bars and burger joints mingle with traditional Turkish meyhanes. Hip crowds of young professional Turks sway to jazz, electronica and Balkan groove while traditional-suited musicians wind their way from table to table, instruments and drums in hand, all blending to create the vibrant cacophonic glory that is Istanbul at night.
