FerahFeza — Istanbul, Turkey
Perched on the rooftop of an old building in Istanbul’s up-and-coming creative district, Karaköy, FerahFeza is the latest restaurant offering from the team behind the successful Leb-i Derya. Boasting two terraces with views of the neighbourhood rooftops on one side and a sprawling vista of the Golden Horn on the other, the eatery - designed by local outfit i-am - features brass countertops with Tom Dixon lights in the bar along with contrasting warm woods and grey upholstered chairs in the restaurant. Outside, the terrace is airy with concrete walls, enhanced by metallic paneling and sleek grey marble slates that reflect the sky and mimic the deck of an elegant yacht. Serving a local menu with a contemporary twist, the restaurant has already been embraced by trendsetters as a natural game changer.
