Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Montefiore Restaurant
The restaurant at this boutique hotel serves modern brasserie fare, throwing in a few Vietnamese touches for good measure. For starters, sample the raw tuna with yuzu or the mussels with lemongrass. Main dishes include baked drum fish with tomatoes and olive oil, grilled lamb chops, and sirloin steak with wild mushrooms. The dining room is in a lovingly restored home on Montefiore Street in the heart of historic Tel Aviv. White walls, potted plants, slatted wooden blinds, and the silver-plated sugar servers selected by co-owner Ruthie Brouda evoke old-world colonial days. The impeccable service, well-prepared food, and interesting wine list compare very favorably with the city's more expensive restaurants.
