Ulus 29 would easily end up in any shortlist of “Istanbul’s Most Amazing Restaurants With a View”. Located on lush slopes of a city park in Ulus neighborhood, this restaurant has been the first choice of the city’s movers and shakers for a power lunch or business dinner, as well as for impressing their visiting foreign friends.
Ulus 29 is the brainchild of Metin Fadıllıoğlu, a local restaurateur that created several super-successful venues in the city, including the Beymen Brasserie in fashionable Nişantaşı district. It might have lost some of its club-like intimate feel after being sold to a big hospitality group, but its menu and panoramic Bosphorus scenery are as fascinating as ever. The innovative local chefs fuse global and local tastes here for creating plates with a special focus on seafood.
You can easily combine a dinner at Ulus 29 with a show at Zorlu PSM, a world-class performance center situated inside a premium shopping mall. Alternatively, you could choose to continue the night at one of the buzzing night clubs located along the coastal strip of Kuruçeşme or in one of the popular craft cocktail bars of Arnavutköy.
