Tel Aviv has become one of the world's great food cities, with an ever-evolving culinary scene. Here are five restaurants we recommend.
Finding Tel Aviv buzzing and fashionable, our editor stayed in three hotels in three different areas: Jaffa, the "American Colony" and downtown's "White City."
Our editor had positive experiences in two of the hotels he stayed at in Tel Aviv. He split his time between Jaffa, the American Colony and the White City.
Israel's chefs employ an eclectic mix of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern ingredients and culinary styles. Here are my favorite restaurants in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
At the time of my visit, two new properties were about to open. It is likely that they will transform the hotel scenes in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
It is a two-and-a-half-hour drive northwest to Tel Aviv (an hour by helicopter), which was founded in 1909 on land purchased by the Jewish National Fund just north of the old Arab city of Jaffa. Today, the two are combined in the city of Tel Aviv-Yafo, with Jaffa having become a district of galleries and restaurants.
On April 11, 1909, a group of 66 Jewish families gathered in sand dunes a mile north of the ancient port of Jaffa to divide the patch of barren land that had been purchased on their behalf.
