Sure, a simple walk across Galata Bridge could be the deciding factor of your next meal. Not really because you'd like it to be, but because one of the very aggressive, yet sweet-talking gentlemen standing outside each establishment has literally tied you down and dragged you into his lair, I mean... restaurant. Don't get me wrong, it's a lovely walk across, but beware potential captors and swinging fishing hooks from above - yes, the top level is lined with fishermen. But being caught by a maitre d' or fisherman aside, it's kind of awesome that Istanbul allows that kind of liable coexistence on the bridge, sans waivers.
