Since its inception, immigrants from far-flung locales have sought refuge in Israel, bringing with them recipes from their homelands and flavors from their upbringings. This melting pot of cultures has not only inspired a new Israeli cuisine, it has also given birth to some of Israel's most celebrated local chefs. These top chef restaurants in Israel are the fruits of their labor and indulgent treats for anybody who can swing a reservation, this is just one of the many things to do in Israel. They pair exquisite food with fine wines, funky cocktails and fancy atmospheres for the perfect dining experience. Equally appealing, but easier on the wallet, Tel Aviv's street food scene broadcasts the same cultural melting pot at a quarter the price (with top local chefs behind-the-scenes as well). Our list of the best kosher restaurants in Israel also features renowned chefs. Just take your pick.
