Another special place we visited this year was the Borsa Restaurant, located on the hills of Kandilli. It occupies the location and most of the structure where the Kandilli Girls’ High School used to stand. The building, renovated by a grant from the Sakip Sabanci and through the vision of the late Turkan Saylan, offers a great vista on the Bosphorus. We went there as the guests of our dear friend Nevin Bilginer to enjoy the company of the family. She was a gracious hostess and both the food and the company were highly enjoyable. I will post another entry from the same location but this one is reserved for the initial vista and the family. We were there with my wife, my sister, and brother-in-law, Nevin and Melin; the last three are siblings. Enjoy the vista and my family.
