Haifa Steakhouse arriving in Tel Aviv and 4 other things worth tasting this week

1. Visit the new steakhouse

In a rather surprising location, on the border of Holon, Cowboy Steakhouse – Haifa’s sister restaurant that has been a culinary institution for several decades – has opened. The restaurant, opened by Yossi Tochner, a veteran restaurateur who has worked in the Northern District so far, is based on the concept of American roadside inns with Texas and Central American cuisine. It is large, with 170 seats and also a suitable space for private events or groups.

The menu, of course, focuses on meat – from fresh steaks that come from the Golan Heights, through specialty sausages and ending with meat dishes. Go for traditional dishes like filet steak, entrecote or lamb chops or go for slightly different dishes, like chicken breast stuffed with beef and Gouda cheese, or foie gras with nougat croissant and raspberry jam (I swear).

2. Try Thai food, a little differently

Another newcomer to the Tel Aviv culinary scene is Ahen Thai, a northern Thai restaurant by chef Meidad Stabinski who has returned to Israel after 10 years of living in Thailand. The new venue on Lilienblum Street is based on Isani cuisine (from the northeastern region of Thailand) which features traditional grilled Asian dishes. On the menu you can find dishes such as grilled and long smoked chicken thighs on the grill or grilled shrimp and calamari. And of course there are also Thai dishes that are particularly popular with the Israeli public, such as som tam salads of all kinds. Bad Tai, by the way, no.

when: Sunday Saturday

3. Climb to the highest roof in Netanya

Outside Tel Aviv, too, there are renovations: the new Mari restaurant of Chef Aviv Moshe (Mesa) was recently opened in Netanya. The restaurant, a collaboration between Moshe and Itzik Rousseau, is located on the rooftop of the Vert Hotel on the city beach. It is 900 meters long and is divided into several different spaces. Known as the “Sky Lounge”, the venue is intended to combine a culinary experience with a night out. Moshe’s menu includes dishes such as tuna with amirna mustard, mustard syrup and toasted sesame seeds, or filet mignon with gnocchi and mushroom drippings, porcini whipped cream and crunchy tomatoes.

4. Be impressed with the new culinary connection in the North

A little more coding: Yakov Hayat, who was the owner of one of the most famous northern restaurants in the country, Sharabish, is currently connected to another northern culinary establishment – Ray Restaurant in Kfar Rama. Hyatt’s entry into the mirror also brings a variety of new dishes to the menu, most of which are based on raw materials chosen from the region, incorporating some traditional Arabic cuisine into the menu that so far revolves around Bulgarian dishes.

When: Sunday – Saturday

5. Drink wine (anytime, anywhere)

We ate and ate, and drink nothing? Some new and interesting wine affairs are happening around the country these days:

The first is Pop Up Wine Bar, a new project by entrepreneur and producer Eyal Naor, which will host wine from another Israeli winery every week. Meetings will take place in ‘Private Room’ or ‘Lilly Chefs Kitchen’ spaces – both at Panorama House in south Tel Aviv, and will offer three wines at three different price levels at a time. Wine will be available for wine tasting, bottle purchase and also enjoying wine on the spot along with small plates, music and the breeze from the balcony.

when: 25.3, 1.4, 5.4 Book a place here

The second is the “Wine Time” exhibition, which will be held next Saturday for the eighth time in Western Galilee: this time it will include four local wineries: Meshek Ofir Winery, Stern Winery, Kishor Winery, Julia Winery, serving wine – the new next to the old. All this will happen in a eucalyptus orchard along with cheeses from the local rum farm, and a mobile dinner with hot pastries and handcrafted honey from the Auvers farm.

when: 26.3. Register on the Western Galilee Society website

The third is On Timeline, a second-year event at Ariel University (in collaboration with “The Grape Man”) that will introduce wineries in Judea and Samaria, one of the world’s oldest wine regions. Besides the local wineries that will be involved in winemaking, there will also be workshops and lectures in collaboration with the university.

when: 30-31.3, order tickets from the Grape Man website
