Unter ups the Karaköy swank factor

If Karaköy wasn’t swanky enough for you two weeks ago, its swank factor has just increased considerably with the addition of Unter, a project by the minds behind Nupera’s Auf. This beautifully designed eatery and lounge might just be my new favourite hangout, diagonally opposite my favourite coffee joint, Karabatak Café. If I was allowed to bring one street corner with me to my deserted island, this might well be it. In fact, I could quite easily and happily lose an entire day and night here. The food is delicious and the staff hip yet friendly. Better still, they know how to pour a pint of Ireland’s most famous stout. Downstairs is the main dining area an intimate space enlivened by its view of the kitchen and street level location. Upstairs is the perfect venue for a party, with fireside chairs, a long table — a space with plenty of flow and feeling for mingling or retreating. I wish I could think up an occasion just to host a party. Any suggestions?
