Right nearby the Shuk Hacarmel, the recently opened Coco Bambino offers a very tasteful, trendy urban/exotic décor. Tom Aviv, winner of the Israeli Master Chef can be found at the piano. Dishes are served as soon as they are ready and not in any particular order. A few are originally presented such as the burrata which arrives tied up like a gift! Classics include burrata with sun dried tomatoes and olive pesto, or the ceviche bruschetta. The products are fresh, the flavors are pleasant, and sometimes even astonishing when the Italian dishes are locally inspired such as the tortellini druzes. This dish is an excellent surprise combining a classic butter sauce livened up with zaatar, labane, artichokes and tomatoes. We are seduced by the Middle-Eastern/Italian fusion. It’s hot, smooth, and comforting. This is a very lovely place with a pleasant atmosphere. A cross between a musical bar and a restaurant, Coco Bambino walks a line between chic and cool (i.e. the ice cream served in its Styrofoam box) with portions that will only satisfy those with small appetites.
