Cucina Tamar (10 Hatzfira Street, Tel Aviv) – this well-regarded Italian restaurant is run by local chef Tamar Cohen-Tzedek, who makes it a point to travel periodically to northern Italy to keep up with culinary trends there. The result is a wealth of specialties that diners here can delve in, such as velvety parmesan budino, tartufo ravioli, delicate beet bandera, and artichoke tortellini, along with bold new dishes such as; crab, pumpkin and tarragon soup; Misty de mare (pickled seafood with squid carpaccio, pickled sardines and basil-tuna tartar), spareribs cooked in fennel & milk, and more. Fortunately, the restaurant has two levels, so there’s less of a likelihood of a long wait to eat.
