The outdoor garden where we will host our rehearsal dinner
We just made a reservation for our wedding rehearsal dinner, so we wanted to share the details with everyone. It will be on the Monday prior to the wedding at Kosebasi restaurant around the corner from our house (Kosebasi actually means "corner"). This is one of our favorite kebap restaurants in Istanbul! They have delicious mezeler (appetizers), lahmacun (mini Turkish lamb pizzas) and grilled kebaps. The branch by our house (Fenerbahce) is in an old restored mansion, and it is best in summertime when you can sit outside in the garden area under the trees. We think it will be a great representation of Turkish cuisine for our guests arriving that day! For all of those who want a taste of Turkey, they have a (very pricey!) sister location on Madison Avenue in New York City called Pera Mediterranean Brasserie. The Roasted Whipped Eggplant, Warm Hummus, and Adana Kebap are especially delicious!
