Tugra Restaurant

32 Çiragan Cad. , Çiragan Palace Hotel Kempinski
Istanbul , Turkey http://www.kempinski.com/en/istanbul/Restaurants%20and%20Bars/Restaurants/Pages/TugraRestaurant.aspx
90-212-326-4646

The Tugra was the calligraphic seal of the Ottoman Sultans. No doubt the restaurant of the same name now located in the sumptuous 19th-century Ciragan Palace on the western shore of the Bosphorus would get one of approval. Serving authentic recipes sourced from ancient manuscripts like red mullet dolma, saffron ravioli, and lamb kulbasti, the restaurant is set among soaring marble columns, sculpted gardens, and sky-blue Bosphorus, taking luxury to a new level. As expected, it comes with a price tag that can easily run several hundred dollars, especially if alcohol is included.
