This wine bar, located in one of the most beautiful pedestrian streets in Tel-Aviv leading to Shuk Ha- Carmel, does equal honor to food and wine. The décor is spare but the place is warm, with a slightly Catalan or Southern Italian feel. The wine list is generous and the staff’s advice is helpful. The service is perfectly paced. We don’t have to wait long but we never feel rushed. In terms of the food, we are especially taken with the lighter dishes including marinated fish and its exceptional olive oil, or the baked kohlrabi served with goat cheese and arugula. More rustic dishes include moussabaha of root vegetables or the beef tongue with mushrooms, with its creamy butter sauce. The Chef offers well thought out, extremely fresh, simply presented dishes. The food and wine are judiciously paired to bring out the best in each other. The overall effect is very comforting.
