Is there anything better than starting the day off with a chic breakfast of fluffy baked bread, perfectly-poached eggs and piles upon piles of pancakes? The restaurant inside the Hotel Montefiore offers a brunch menu that is as much an oasis of style as the boutique hotel itself. This one-of-a-kind classy vibe with antique silverware is the spot to spend your morning, but also the place to indulge in French cuisine cast under a Vietnamese spell any time of the day.
The latest addition to Neve Tzedek's slew of upscale restaurants is the brand new European tapas spot Cordero. The 140-seat restaurant, adjacent to the celebrated Suzanne Dellal Center for Dance, offers a menu of fine Southern European gastronomy, pulling from the seafood restaurants of France, the tapas bars of Spain and the trattorias of Italy. What could be more romantic? And the restaurant itself is suited up in the tradition of timeless European interior design with 20th-century Belgian chairs and French lamps from the 1930’s exuding intimate lighting, as well as plush chairs and lounge sofas, large velvet banquettes and the close quarters of bar seating. Few Tel Aviv restaurants opt for the fine dining look associated with white tablecloth dressings, but Cordero sets the refined tone right from the start.
Cordero, 6 Yechiely St, Tel Aviv, open for dinner from 6pm to midnight, Monday through Saturday, 03-5178486/cordero.co.il
