Needless to say, there is a lot of hype around this restaurant, being owned by Haim Cohen (who's concept of food I ordinarily love) The table must be booked far in advance, but we definitely wanted to try it. The place is lovely, very 2012 contemporary, and I thought, wow, I am sure the food will be great. I looked at the menu, which seemed ordinary, the focus being on meat...beef, lamb, osso buco. When I saw the wine menu, I was surprised at the choice (or lack thereof)...one would think there would be a good amount of Bordeaux to choose from....nope, just lots of Cote de Rhone, Dolcetto and Barbera's and a Burgundy or two......We settled on an Israeli wine that was ok but nothing special. The food started to arrive....we started with a fish carpaccio with pumpkin and pumpkin seeds, which, should have been nice, but was DESPERATELY missing some citrus to balance out a very very syrupy sweet sauce....you may give this a miss. My husbands main course came, and it looked like such a mess on the plate, I wondered that he didn;t return it to the kitchen pronto (we were invited and couldn't say anything much but thank you) On this plate was a potato and eggplant rosti (which was delectable) with three large lamb chops piled on top, and on top of this, a collection of different colored string beans, short long, wide...just, a mess...and falling off the plate, the whole thing was out of context, what a shame. My host ordered the fish (which I tasted) and we both deemed very very ordinary. Verdict...VERY VERY ordinary food at ridiculously inflated prices!!! Go there, if you must, be seen, hob nob if this is what pleases you, but eat somewhere else (Gedera for example) and get better food for a third of the price.
