Located within Grand Hyatt Istanbul, 34 is a family-style restaurant where food sharing is encouraged. With a large indoor dining area and a small but cozy outdoor dining space right by the hotel’s pool, 34 is an airy venue featuring high ceilings and lots of light, with open kitchens and displays of scrumptious food acting as the main decor.
The menu, created by Executive Chef Fabio Brambilla, is subject to change based on what the bazaars offer. The restaurant is divided into five sections, and so is the menu. Charcuterie & Cheese Room features over 30 varieties of Turkish cheese as well as a selection of meze, which can be paired with regional wines or rakı. In the Kitchen section, you’ll find pasta varieties, soups, and several side dishes, while the Smoke House is where the meats (which are sourced from Edirne) and kebabs are cooked. The Bakery and Patisserie sections display varieties of international and Turkish desserts as well as bakery goods, such as apple pie, berry crumble, and baklava. A private dining space and an interactive dining event called Chef's Table can be arranged by reservation.
