Israel In Focus
As international as its population, the city’s array of five-star restaurants, cafés,
art galleries and shops radiate a cosmopolitan energy akin to Paris, New York or
London. Renowned for the Art Nouveau, Bauhaus and International architecture
of its historic regions, the country’s cultural capital also has an impressive art
scene that includes contemporary artists like Ilana Goor and Frank Meisler, as
well as museums documenting the lives of early pioneers like poet Haim Bialik
and artist Nahum Gutman. The Tel Aviv Museum of Art is another mainstay for
tourists interested in Israel’s art and culture.
WHERE TO EAT:

inventive dishes as mullet ceviche, gnocchi with goose
ragu, and blue crabs cooked with brandy and Pernod.
Nearby at Gedera 26, chef Amir Kronenberg blends
Swedish, Iraqi and Israeli cuisines into dishes inspired

Israeli cuisine, a trip to the Carmel market is sure to get
the creative juices flowing.
