I'm embarrassed to say I cannot find the "Restaurant Picks" thread for Istanbul. The "search box" yielded many references to it - but I didn't find a "Sticky" at the top of the forum threads.
It's Monday and I leave early Wednesday morning - so I had to ask this silly question or miss out of reading everyone's "real world" experience.
My wife and I will be spending about 6 days in Istanbul (Ilkay Hotel which I gather puts us close to many sites) visiting our recently arrived college daughter studying there. I don't know how familiar she'll be with the city and what we should do - so far I've printed out a few things from threads here and we have the Eyewitness book.
Our trip is a bit odd because due to inflexible work schedules, I arrive 3 days before wife who stays three days after me - so we have to figure out what things we want to visit together and what other things we do on our own (with or without our daughter who has school on weekdays.)
If I sound uncertain - I am! This was a relatively last minute "let's plunge ahead!" decision two weeks ago.
