A leader of Turkey’s culinary revolution, The Bodrum EDITION by Ian Schrager, in partnership with Marriott International, launched new chef collaborations and a pop-up into its culinary calendar.
The hotel, which reopened in April, has welcomed guests with its unique dining, drinking, and entertainment program.
At Morena, The Bodrum EDITION’s all-day restaurant, executive chef and Peruvian free rider Diego Muñoz collaborated with the finest Asian restaurant in Istanbul, Inari Omakase. The vibrant space evolved from an informal laidback setting during the day into the Inari pop-up in the evening, to serve an elevated dinner menu incorporating Japanese flair.
With eyes on guest preferences as well as the latest culinary trends, the new pop-up brings the very best of fine dining in the capital to Bodrum. It carries a new and curated menu that celebrates the biodiversity of the environment while using only the freshest local produce that Turkey has to offer. Inari has a long-standing tradition of flavor and culture fusions, making this pop-up collaboration the ideal seaside pairing of East meets West.
At Kitchen, the restaurant joined forces with renowned Turkish celebrity chef Osman Sezener, the creator of the critically acclaimed Od Urla. Osman has created a new concept to open the enchanting space for dinner, with a menu that truly supports the local community and immerses guests in the wonderful array of indigenous flavors.
Many of the ingredients presented are sustainably sourced from nearby farms, as well as the property’s own gardens. Comprising fresh produce including herbs, salad greens, vegetables as well as the freshest fish and meat, the menu is all about exploring the Turkish Coast.
Diego Muñoz has served in Paris, Sydney, Lima, Bali, Lisbon, Copenhagen, Miami, and as many cities as you can count. But his roots are strongly linked to Peruvian soil. At BRAVA, the foodie favorite and the hotel’s signature al-fresco restaurant, offers an enhanced Peruvian inspired menu for the 2021 season and features authentic dishes. This includes an array of fresh, locally sourced crudos and well-known traditional dishes, such as Lomo Saltado and Nikkei Ceviche.
At BRAVA Bar, the beverage concept is built on inventive mixology that compliments the local flavors found in the region. The drinks are artfully presented, paying homage to Latin America. As the hotel’s hotspot for events in the evening, BRAVA will continue to host an exciting number of collaborations with renowned names in music, art and fashion.
And finally, the elegantly relaxed Morena Beach has been enhanced to offer more private cabanas by the striking white sand beach, where hotel guests and local visitors can enjoy handcrafted cocktails and al fresco dining.
The Bodrum EDITION makes sure to provide a safe, seamless and ultimately enjoyable experience for all. Taking precautionary measures to ensure guests’ wellbeing and for the hotel’s employees, they have heightened their already stringent practices around food handling, sanitization, disinfection, and cleaning. Specific measures based on the guidance of local health authorities and the current situation in Turkey are also being observed.
The Bodrum EDITION is located in Tilkicik Bay at the western point of the Bodrum peninsula, and minutes from Bodrum Castle and Bodrum Amphitheater.
