It was really hard for me to start writing about our evening at Den. We had such high expectations before arriving here, but nothing could really prepare us for this mind-blowing, mouth-watering, once in a life time experience.
If you’re looking for a restaurant with a great view in Tel Aviv, Raphael is probably one of the best. The chef behind the name is Rafi Cohen, which defines the restaurant as Resto-Bistro. Raphael is well known and a stable establishment in the Israeli culinary scene, existing since 2001 which is quite an impressive feat.
We were looking for a place to have an indulgent lunch on a lazy Friday when a picture from Shulchan (“Table” in Hebrew) popped up in my Facebook feed. After a brief debate (atypical for us, since it usually involves at least a couple of hours) and quick phone call to make sure there’s an available table, we were on our way to Rothschild St.
Claro is hands down one of my favorite restaurants in Tel Aviv. If you were to ask me for a restaurant recommendation, one that fits both casual and celebratory events, Claro would be one of the first names to come up. The restaurant is located in Sarona, close to Ha’arbaa street inside a huge Templar structure. The main hall is spacious and impressive, boasting a large open kitchen and a bright, beautiful design. There are several seating options, each providing the patrons with a different experience. If this is your first time here, I recommend sitting on the bar to catch all the action as it unfolds in the kitchen.
