Fodor's Expert Review Mona

$$$$ Center City Israeli Fodor's Choice

Nestled into a stonewalled garden, Mona has a working fireplace and a tree growing through the indoor section, creating a rustic setting for eminently modern Israeli cooking overseen by two chef-owners. Start your night with the light red tuna sashimi with chili or the award-winning crab bisque. Continue to a hearty polenta with mushroom ragout and asparagus. Do not miss the beautifully prepared beef fillet with sweetbreads and purple cabbage. Vegetarians will seek refuge in a few salads. For dessert, try the sour cream and Szechuan sorbet over nectarine compote. Wait until later in the evening if you just want to order cocktails based on homemade liquor at the excellent bar. Reservations are essential on weekends.
