Go to many traditional Turkish restaurants in Istanbul, and your meal will begin when a waiter parks his double decker cart next to your table, full of delicious mezze dishes for you to choose from: Feta, braised beans, hummus, grilled octopus salad, grain salads, hummus...we can't think of a better way to start a meal.

Combinations like those on the Merguez Sausage, Tomato Jam and Aleppo Pepper entice, but the buttery Confit Potato, Young Onion and Bottarga is truly stunning.
