Four Seasons Sultanahmet in Istanbul Sultanahmet is well known because it used to be the Jail of Sultanhamet and now as a great hotel and culinary delights. The brunch at the Four Seasons, Sultanahmet is famous because it is a great hotel and has magnificent culinary delights. The location is great because it’s in the heart of the tourist area, Sultanahmet. When I went there, I started my meal with a Starbucks Dupio, iced, that I had bought earlier that morning.

I love espresso

The waiter saw it and said, “I can make a better one — will you have?” I agreed.

Double espresso!

My advice is to spend the extra money to go to the Four Seasons hotel for fine dining and the best Sunday brunch. Treat yourself the way you want to be treated. Here’s how to do it.

First, pick a location for your fine dining

Location, location, location. My wish list grows and shrinks, but is never gone. For my splurge, I usually pick the Four Seasons in Bosphorus, or Sultanahmet, when I am in Istanbul. Over the past seven years, I have come to this magnificent city about a dozen times.

Beginning — This is the entrance to your experience

Middle — What is the meat of the location?

End — What will close the experience

Before you leave the restaurant, make sure you see everything. At the Four Seasons, I wanted to visit the rooftop because of the overall view and the ancient ruins that can be seen from that level.
