My parents and I will be spending 4 days in istanbul, what do the chowhounders recommend? We are all very much foodies, but also enjoy a nice dinner out...looking for breakfast, lunch and dinner recos. Help!

    i suggest you look through the previous posts on this board.
    there is plenty of discourse on Ciya, the foodie shrine of the city.
    greasy breakfasts at Lades 2 or Van Kahvaltasi. I also suggest the little kosks inside of Yildiz park for long turkish breakfast sans carhorns.
    kebab at zubeyir.
    abracadabra for a "nicer" dinner out.
    narrow things down a bit and i am sure people will chime in.
    check www.istanbuleats.com for detailed reviews, addresses, etc.
