You may have to do a double take when you first see this restaurant as it’s in an old car repair shop, but you certainly won’t forget Auto Rossellon once you try the food. The second restaurant from entrepreneurs Ronit Stern and Rafael Campos doesn’t have a concept, but rather an idea to allow the food to have a personality. That's why they call it a cuisine without labels and make sure diners have something good to eat every day.
Auto Rossellon offers a set lunch menu at a decent price and the best seasonal products possible. Stern, who's also the chef, incorporates some of his Israeli background into the dishes. The set menu may include home-made bagels with sesame butter, yogurt and spices, and a beetroot hummus. The eggs with coffee and a sweet treat are excellent options as well. There are even items specifically for children, among them a choice between a ham and cheese sandwich or eggs, toast and a drink.
You can also try dishes with touches of other cultures in them, such as the soft, fluffy dumplings with tamarind and soy. At night Auto Rossellon serves up gourmet dishes like sweet potatoes, spinach and ricotta or lamb with vegetable tahini. The influence of the Mediterranean is evident in the dishes, but not just from the Spanish region. The recipes span from Lebanon to northern Italy, you'll find plenty of variety at all hours of the day.
