Sunset Grill&Bar Istanbul: A View to a Kill and Delicious Bites

Sunset offers a unique experience with an incomparable Bosphorus view. A hillside garden terrace with a remarkable view and exquisite Turkish and international cuisine makes Sunset an attractive spot for the upmarket clientele. How lucky are we to have had the chance to experience one of Istanbul’s most talked about “gathering spot” for both local and foreign socialites and Turkish business elites? We were seated at a table with a beautiful view. Located on a hilltop below Ulus Park in the upscale neighborhood of Ulus, we were able to enjoy the spectacular view of the Bosphorus, Bosphorus Bridge and Asian shoreline, as we sipped on some Turkish white wine.

Simone Crestani Gives Glass a Poetic Meaning

Simone Crestani is a young Italian talent able to lend a contemporary reinterpretation to one of the oldest artistic and artisan trades in Europe: a modern Homo Faber with an extraordinary ability to transform the material and develop the craft by approaching the worlds of art and design, as well as convert nature into a crystalline world of poetic wonders. His lampwork in borosilicate glass uses an innovative technique, which Simone himself describes as hollow sculpting, that allows him to create large works which nevertheless incorporate the smallest details. Simone’s universe ­– maestro of blown lamp working, artist and designer – appears like a mysterious and compelling modern-day Wunderkammer featuring refined bonsai pieces and stupefying trees, majestic deer and crystalline fish, headless hens and sprawling octopi: a world inspired by nature, in which wonder rules and we are captivated by the artist’s creative poetics and...
