Maksut Aşkar

Chosen as one of the best restaurants in the world, the internationally known chef of Neolokal, Maksut Aşkar describes his culinary mission as “a bridge between the past and the future”. His dishes transform traditional recipes into inspiring tastes by combining products in danger of going extinct with modern techniques and creative design. Maksut is often found hosting and paricipating in international culinary events for the purpose of discovery and exchange. With the same perspective towards Anatolian grapes, and a passion to drawing attention to them, he opened the wine bar “Foxy” in 2019, together with wine expert Levon Bağış
