Description: Chef Omer Miller and restaurateurs Itay Spivak and Steven Lobel (Dining Hall) have reunited to open Shulhan – the new neighbor on Tel Aviv's Rothschild Avenue 3 years ago. HaShulhan offers a fresh creative cuisine, urban lively atmosphere, as well as intimate feel. Chef Omer Miller presents a menu of personal interpretations of the local modern cuisine: colorful clean presentation, multiple combinations of very few products, minimal processing and hints of familiar flavors. Shulhan's menu includes small and main courses, all offered for fair prices, while allowing a shared meal: Egg Schnitzel in Garam Masala, crispy shallots, green onions and Thai vinaigrette; cold calamari salad with chick peas, hyssop, grilled eggplant, tomatoes and hot chili pepper; polenta cannelloni with crab bisque, shrimps, calamari and mussels; chicken stew with aromatic spice broth, root cream, chick peas and onions, and many others. Shulhan's decor, which is corresponding with the restaurant's neighborhood, was planned by Architect Dan Troim. The restaurant's open space is influenced by the outside street, the ceiling is high and inside the restaurant wood and bright colors are dominant features. Nevertheless, the center of attention remains the social, culinary occurrences around the tables. Chef Miller and DJ Funkyfish composed a special soundtrack music for Shulhan, which is corresponding with the flow of people rushing into the restaurant from Rothschild Avenue – the social, cultural and economic center of Tel Aviv.

Food was good, but waiter so disinterested and plain rude that we did not enjoy the meal. He never even came back to table after our meal was served to see how we were doing. I had calamari which was really delicious but he put us in a bad mood.

i am pretty sure all the people at the restaurant were trying it for the first time because i doubt anyone would want to return. the restaurant is very well situated, our waiters were friendly and the atmosphere was somewhat fun but the food was really low-level. we shared 3 starters and 2 small main courses, one of which we simply gave back and prefered not to replace it as the other dishes were just above "OK". i would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to waste money away.

That is what is called today Israel Kitchen. good quality of the ingrediants, good service, poor reservation system but the quality of the food covers it big time.

Apparently one of the new hot spots in Tel Aviv, we tried to reserve a table. Even a local friend with lots of connections got involved... We still failed! I the spirit of never giving up, we just showed up at dinner time and we were assigned a seat at the bar outside. Even in August no problem, the rest of the year certainly a blessing. Very relaxed athmosphere. Ben (the waiter) invited us for a vodka (todah rabah) and we chose a Israeli Pelter Sauvignon Blanc (go local!!!!!). Sweetbreads (yum, if you like them), sald with figs, risotto, sea breams on tomatoes (crispy, tasty on the tangy tomatoes) and a chocolate (death) brownie dessert, built at the tale. The envy of our (very charming Tel Aviv neighbors at the bar). To share is to care, but we decided to have it to ourselves, because it was so good!

Sat at bar overlooking kitchen. A very tantalizing and promising, busy place with meat and fish entrees and unusual appetizers, melon soup is great, portions ranged from large (salad) to medium (entrees). Popular and hard to find seat if busy.
