The blogosphere is a buzz with exciting news that acclaimed Italian chef Massimo Bottura is opening a restaurant in Istanbul.
The chef's new venture will be called Ristorante Italia di Massimo Bottura and will be located inside the Eataly complex at Istanbul's Zorlu Center, a luxury shopping mall in the affluent Besiktas area of the city, on its European shore, Caterer and Hotelkeeper reports.
A spokesperson for Bottura confirmed that the restaurant would not be modelled on the concepts of either of the chef's existing two Modena restaurants, but that it would be "a very smart" new dining concept aimed at the sophisticated clientele in the area, according to Caterer and Hotelkeeper.
