  1. Mul Yam

Mul Yam

For almost twenty years now Mul Yam makes sure that Nova Scotian lobsters and Brittany’s oysters   live up to their  purpose. This gastronomic drama takes place under the direction of Chef Yoram Nitzan. Although the outer appearance of Mul Yam doesn’t appear to be all that glorious, the centre stage is dedicated to raw materials that are being shipped, together with the wines, from all around the world by Shalom Maharovsky. Prepare to be amazed with the dishes and the proficiency and consistency with which they are made. Tel Aviv Port 3. 972-(0)3-546-9920

2. Catit

Chef Meir Adoni

Chef Meir Adoni

One can sit and stare for hours at the dishes of Chef Meir Adoni’s which comprise perfect compositions and harmoniously restrained colors. Catit draws its diners into a journey of flavours that presents no hierarchy between raw materials: yuzo, havenero, interior parts, mloukhiya or Bamba powder – all of these connect in the picturesque legend created by Adoni via a variety of traditional and modern local cooking techniques. Catit can be regarded as a trend among gourmands, including vegetarians and vegans for whom special meals have been designed by the chef. Nahalat Binyamin 57, Tel Aviv. 972-(0)3-5107001

3. Herbert Samuel

Herbert Samuel

Chef Jonathan Roshfeld creates all the dishes in Herbert Samuel’s menu. For Roshfeld the food plays the most important role in the restaurant and this ideology can be seen clearly in the design of the place. Roshfeld began his career in what we refer to as European cosine but in recent years he extended his work and now you might find Asian elements in his dishes. Still, his heart and his kitchen stay devoted to simple ingredients such as beets and tuna, and of course, to his fantastic trademark tomato salad. Yehezkel Kaufman 6, Tel Aviv. 972-(0)3-5166516

4. Messa

Messa

Messa

Tall tables and impressive chandeliers, in a black and white environment create a very demanding atmosphere. The Chef Aviv Moshe has been perpetuating this atmosphere for the past decade: French techniques and a surprising twist in every dish, with lots of fish and a sense of festivity that is amplified through the cocktail selection. Finally, if you get this dessert you will feel like a real hero:  strawberries trapped in a jar under piles of cream and macaroons. Saving the strawberries would be very heroic of you. In 2013 Haviv Moshe, Mesa’s Sue-Chef, won the young chef competition in Israel sponsored by San Pellegrino and the Audience Award in San Pellegrino Cooking Cup in Venice. HaArba’a 19, Tel Aviv. 972-(0)3-685-6859

5. Toto

Toto

Toto

Toto takes the innocent Mediterranean culinary fantasies and brings them to life in a creative, seasonal, sensual and complex manner. It’s completely legitimate to sit on the bar at Toto and order a pizza. Although there are several winning dishes on the menu, we recommend you go for the oxtail tortellini or the chestnut gnocchi. Berkowitz 4, Tel Aviv. 972-(0)3-6935151

6. Arcadia

Arcadia

Arcadia
