At Yavne 31 you come for the ambiance first and the food second. The setting includes school tables and chairs, large fluorescent neon signs, waiters in Hawaiian shirts, and an open kitchen in which a ballet of four cooks is presided over the Chef. The service is fast with a canteen atmosphere (glasses are set on the table in stacks). The products are extremely fresh and presented simply: white fish sashimi or small grilled fish on crisp vegetables. The giant pasta, a sort of immense lasagna folded into eight sections like a dinner napkin, is sprinkled with olive oil and parmesan. It is perfectly al dente, simple and does the job admirably. The unique dessert is an enormous grilled marshmallow on a crème anglaise: unexpected, deliciously regressive and absolutely to be shared. This is the perfect place to soak up some Tel-Aviv atmosphere. Young and trendy, Yavne 31 is in the spirit of restaurants flourishing along Rothschild. You can eat simply and well here, without breaking the bank.
