Beyoğlu’s favourite ‘modern meyhane’ offers spectacular meze dishes and Beylerbeyi brand rakı. The venue experiences different seasons within itself as a place for dinner, late dinner and bar-nighttime entertainment. The brief interludes of silence in the early evening later give themselves over to complete exuberance. The bar plays a large part in this transformation, while the menu is short but sweet, neither too little nor too much. If you haven’t been able to visit it yet, leave yourself in the hands of the staff, who’ll deck out your table for you. Münferit offers delicious meze and warm starters to go with rakı. The grilled shrimp with hummus, ovenbaked white cheese with porcini mushrooms and truffle oil, angler fish with corn cream and black couscous with mussels are musttry starters, while our recommendation for main course is the lamb chops. Let’s remind those of you who are rakı fans that the venue only offers Beylerbeyi rakı; Beylerbeyi Yeşil is especially worth a try. Don’t even think about making reservations one or even two days in advance – there’s a very dedicated crowd of regulars who spend just about every night there.
