With global flavors, high-level mixology, fresh seafood and forward-looking cuisine like cultivated steak, the city’s elevated gastronomy scene is nothing short of cutting-edge.

Tel Aviv restaurants and bars continue to grace The World’s 50 Best Restaurants and other top lists, and Israel’s Tourism Ministry just gave the greenlight to bring the prestigious Michelin Guide to the country’s “Nonstop City.” But locals know they don’t need a list to tell them just how innovative and expansive the fine dining scene is here.
