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.

We arrived in TLV in the evening, staying at The Rothschild hotel, not knowing one restaurant from another. The hotel staff recommended Hasulchan, which was right next door, and it was an amazing experience. We shared a number of dishes, tapas style. Everything was extremely creative and well presented - a stand-out dish was a pasta stuffed with squash in sage butter - amazing. But what was more amazing was the service. We ordered one dish that we really didn't like - nothing wrong with it, just not our "taste.". The manager noticed that we had both left most of it on our plates. Not only did he remove that dish from the bill, he comped us a delicious dessert and coffees. We were utterly floored when we received the bill. The manager really knows how to run a restaurant and we would have no hesitation highly recommending Hasulchan, which is a quality operation from food to service.

We invited two American couples to the Shulchan and we had a great evening. The menu satisfied all of us. The food was very tastey and looked great. They had a nice selection of wines and we took the waiter`s recommendation which was sucssessful. The waiter spoke good English and was very helpfull. We got good compliments from our American friends about choosing this restaurant. So, we recommend very much this place as a good restaurant to invite tourists or Israeli friends. We understand that they also have a very good business lunch.

A new restaurant that seems to have found its feet and establish itself on Rothschild. We visited on a Sunday evening and the place was packed by 9pm. The menu is 'open table'; your order several dishes that come up at a pace (tapas style), though the 'main course' was separate. The food was excellent and the staff very pleasant and efficient. Drinks and the bill came quickly. A good wine list; though I would have preferred more Israeli wines.

i read about the restaurant in the NYT travel blog and decided to give it a try, I must say that from all the restaurants i tried in my short visit to Tel Aviv it was the best by far, though it did took some time to get a table. From all the dishes, which represent the modern Israeli cuisine do not miss the feta cheese cream for dessert - it was exquisite! will return during my next business trip next month.

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.
