Hg2 : The Hedonist


At the bottom Sofayali Sokak you can find a glimpse of Old Constantinople in the form of Hacer Gündodu’s restaurant and coffee house, K.V. A decorative, wrought-iron gate opens onto a passage filled with tables interspersed with tall, abundant plants, an area that is especially beautiful at night when it is subtly and quite magically lit. Inside the old 19th-century building, Gündodu, who owns the next-door antique shop Artrium, has decorated the rooms to recall the Viennese and Parisian styles once so common in the area. Cabinets full of antique bottles, odd examples of Victorian clothing, ancient telephones and other curiosities conjure a comforting nostalgic air, which means that K.V. is as enchanting in winter as it is in summer. Happily, despite the historical touches and central location, it attracts a mixed bag of locals more than tourists.
