Havan'dan by Beff Gourmet
Reşitpaşa is gaining popularity with a rash of recent new openings and Havan’dan by Beff Gourmet is the latest addition to the excitement. Decorated with bright colors and striking features like a chandelier made of kitchen whisks, this distinctive, lovely eatery is in contrast with the rest of the developing neighborhood – just like the interesting crowd that pulls from the surrounding area.
Havan’dan by Beff Gourmet is the first venture by young chef Dila Ekin Uzunyol. On the bookshelves, binders from her days at Le Cordon Bleu Madrid catch the eye, tucked among the French and Spanish cookbooks. This experience is reflected in the food. The restaurant has no set menu: everyday, different dishes appear on the blackboard above the counter. Uzunyol reinterprets classic Turkish home cooked meals -- such as stuffed chard leaves, spinach casserole, or the classic chicken soup -- and serves them with subtle international flourishes.
The restaurant might seem far, but reaching the area from business districts like Maslak or even Levent by public transportation during lunch hour takes little time. If you are up for a trip on your next lunch date, Havan’dan should be on your list.
