Today, for the first time, Eater turns to Istanbul, Turkey, and focus on eight newish locales that have been garnering serious buzz. For this installment, food writer, blogger, and dining app editor Katie Parla — who has also provided her expertise for the Eater Rome heatmap — shares her picks for a city that she knows so well she recently released a new app: Katie Parla's Istanbul.
Among the map's offerings, Parla writes, is a revamped menu that now derives its inspiration from Anatolia rather than Europe (Mikla), a French restaurant in a Philippe Starck-designed space (Mama Shelter), plus "avant-garde Turkish cuisine" from a restaurant that opened just last month (Gile Restaurant). Here now, the Eater Heatmap to Istanbul:
