New York has 5th, Zurich has Bahnhofstrasse, and Istanbul has its Nisantasi neighborhood, a very fashionable area with an impressive number of Designer Stores, hip restaurants, cafes and exclusive hotels.  Among the many designers shops, most of them second outposts in the City, is Chanel, Prada, Lanvin and Christian Louboutin.  Walking around the neighborhood today I came across the new La Petite Maison that had just opened up one week ago.  The French Mediterranean restaurant which originated in Nice, France is now owned by a London Company.  It has other locations in London, Dubai, and now in Istanbul.  The quaint restaurant with an outdoor terrace is located in The Park Hyatt where the interior design is the beautiful work of the Architecture Interior firm Sagrada and lighting designer Thierry Dreyfus.  We had a great lunch at the outdoor terrace which has an aura of "jardin a la Francaise" where I took a few pictures until you visit Istanbul one day. :) Enjoy!
