35–37 Asmali Mescit Cad., Istanbul, , Turkey

One of the most well-known meyhane restaurants in the city, Yakup 2 serves customers the classic line up of appetizers like artichokes, yogurt, and calamari, followed by innumerable courses of meat and rice dishes and a fruit-platter dessert. Aniseed-flavored raki is the essential beverage and packs an alcoholic punch. It’s known to get the restaurant's customer base of journalists, actors and white collar professionals on its feet as live musicians move table to table. In summer, the terrace becomes center stage and reservations are necessary.
