Kitchen Marketby Tallie Lieberman | 27.10.16
Kitchen Market artfully toys with expectations. This gourmet nod to the new Israeli kitchen, perched cheekily above the Tel Aviv Port Farmers’ Market, offers patrons both a bird’s-eye view of the hubbub surrounding the ingredient palette of their dishes and an exclusive, spectacular view of Tel Aviv’s “Riviera”.
Choice ingredients, select wines and immaculate presentations might tempt Kitchen-goers into a cozy, heady sense of entitlement. But, revelers, take notice! Chef Yossi Shitrit’s playful imagination finds expression in every stroke of every dish — in the coquettish tuna sashimi and yuzu “flower” arrangement, the crack-able porcini, roasted chestnut and prosciutto brûlée, and the egg and porcini cream foam marriage, which tastes (and feels!) like a new, improved way of breathing. Eyes closed, but finger on the zoom. Read more about Kitchen Market in Telavivian’s city guide.
