This place proves you don’t need to serve Tahini, eggplants or any other new-Israeli-cuisine musts in order to become a local favorite. The menu here, featuring mostly old school French bistro dishes, doesn’t hinder this place from being one of the things that make Tel Aviv such a great nightlife city. Because even in Paris or New York you’ll have to work hard to find places like “Bar a Vin”, where you can sit after midnight by a beautiful piazza, in the open air, and enjoy some great wine and some delicious food. A tiny tartar burger, steak frites, pate en croute and leeks in vinaigrette with walnuts are just a few examples of the mouthwatering options in the menu, where you’ll also find a huge gougere de Bourgogne and a remarkable dessert in the form of Tarte Nantese – a near forgotten classic French cake. Bar a Vin is great any given day, but on Fridays and Saturdays a great brunch menu is offered here, and on Monday evenings chef Einav Azgouri usually whips up a wide selection of fresh fish and seafood specials, like sea bream carpaccio in Ajo Blanco or Lobster with French fries. Needless to say that the place’s wine lost proves him aptly named, with a selection of bottles ranging from small Israeli wineries to classic French estates.
