I am sure it is - but the person to help is Kozano.

I am sure she will give you great advice. In the meantime, have a look at her blog:

Monday night will be really empty I'm afraid.

You can have a nice meal with a lovely view but the atmosphere will be much more subdued.

Reina will still have people so may be your best bet, but the outside terrace may be closed by late October, depending on the weather.Even then Reina's indoor is quite nice.

Sunset restaurant is busy weekdays as well, though mostly with business people and their guests but still won't be completely empty as is Ulus29.

Places like Nu Teras, 360 will bu emptier.

Vogue restaurant have lovely views and a nice bar as does Leb-i Derya on the roof of Richmond Hotel, I don't think they will be empty.

Cahide and Al-Jamal will be dead as they are more weekend places.

Have fun in Istanbul!
