Thanks so much for your reply. Sorry I am new to Chowhound and don't get back here often enough. I did buy a copy of Istanbul Eats and am reading it page by page. I'll make note of your "favorites". Regards, David

We will be in Turkey for about 3 weeks in late October-early November. First 10 days driving throughout Southwest and Central Turkey, the balance of time will be in Istanbul. Would love to get recommendations on places to eat and food dishes to try.
