Travel wisdom dictates that, when looking for the best eating experiences in a new destination, it pays to dine where the locals dine. The elegant onsite restaurant at chic boutique Hotel Montefiore is an excellent example of this: it’s the restaurant of choice for many a Tel Aviv local. The restaurant exemplifies the eclecticism that Tel Aviv does so well – effortlessly blending Vietnamese flavors with French panache. Seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients are used everywhere from the fusion food to the excellent wine and cocktail list, without overlooking the international influences that make Tel Aviv’s food scene so appealing.
Tel Aviv’s Florentin neighborhood is known as the city’s hipster district, with a colorful collection of lively bars and casual-chic restaurants attracting cool kids from out of town as well as resident movers and shakers. Choco Lulu is a favorite destination among savvy locals, who appreciate the very fair prices as well as the Instagrammable design and delicious. Breakfasts and brunches are some of the best in town, the seafood is a thing of beauty, while the dedicated pasta chefs cook up some truly delicious dishes. If that’s not enough to tempt you, the burgers and ice cream are near-legendary on the local food scene.
It would be a crime against food to visit Tel Aviv without sampling the city’s excellent markets, or shuks. The largest of all, Carmel Market (Shuk Hacarmel) , is a vibrant spot to sample some of the most tempting street food dishes on the scene. Sweet-toothed visitors should make a beeline for the honey-rich baklava, while no hummus lover worth their salt will want to miss out on trying at least a couple of the many options on offer here. Handmade breads and local olives provide the perfect companions. Visitors can either visit stalls to sample the tempting wares as they browse, or grab a table of the ever-expanding number of sit-down cafes.
If you want to hang out with Tel Aviv’s hip young things, this artsy, laidback spot is the place. Occupying two floors of the boho-chic Jacob Samuels, it’s a venue that puts fun, booze-soaked socializing front and center, but that’s not to say
the food is an afterthought. Chef and owner Avi Biton presents dishes at the ground floor bistro with flair, and the brunches are just the ticket for a lazy weekend. After dark, the underground cellar bar beckons with its outrageously delicious cocktails and tempting bar snacks.
