Pampering – Delikatessen

15 Jul

R2M group opens a new place, an event that food lovers like us will never skip. It’s true, it took us a while and a lot of recommendations from the people around us (usually we are the recommending side), but we got there and we will be back.

The new place is located in Yehdua HaLevi street, not really the hottest street in Tel Aviv, despite the “5 minutes walk from Rothschild”. Nevertheless, Ruti and Maty manage to bring this boring street to life.

Cold Coffee

We got there on a late morning Friday, after training at the gym, and we enthused to get back all the calories we have burnt. R2M specialty is pampering – immediately after ordering our dishes we got  a complementary basket of bread and pastry alongside with butter and smooth strawberry jam.

Pasya

Pastya

Shahar took Pastya – puff pastry filled with spinach and cheese and served with goat yogurt, hard-boiled egg and olives. Shahar liked the dish and especially the olives. Yet, he felt that the pastry had a bit too much spinach that really controlled the dish.

Under these eggs hide guilty pleasure

Under these eggs guilty pleasure is hidden

Inbar took French Crockett – Which is kind of Crockett Madam – two layers of puff pastry filled with Emmental cheese and ham, on which you get two eggs sunny side up style. Pure guilty pleasure.

The brunch was definitely good  but the highlight of our visit (and the place) is the deli inside. A real deli that makes whatever you want to start cooking (though you just finished eating). The place is full of goods – meat, cheese, baked pastry, bread, special canning and “homemade” food you can take home and much more. Without a doubt, when R2M group creates a new project – you know it will be the best in town.

Cheers – The Coffee Bar

14 Jan

Finally, one of the writers of this blog had arrived to one of R2M places. R2M is a group that is responsible for some of Tel Aviv’s most famous places. This time I (Inbar) was invited to a “girls night” on one of the best bars in the city – The Coffee Bar’s bar.

All of R2M’s places are known for their special atmosphere, great music and special treatment for the guests. Founded in 1994, The Coffee Bar is the first in a chain of restaurants owned by the group (Brasserie, Bakery, Hotel Montefiore, Rotchiled 12).

Prawns in white wine

I met Adi on the Bar, where she had Frozen Lychee Margarita until I arrived. We started with bread and butter that were served as we set down the table along with white wine and a glass of cava. The bread was fresh and crispy and was baked in the nearby Bakery (as mentioned above). The first course was a Beef Carpaccio that was served with olive oil, lemon juice, arugula and fresh parmesan. The beef was tasty and the parmesan was corrective experience to the last parmesan incident.

Burger in red wine

For entrees I had Prawns in white wine, artichoke hearts, batter, garlic and oregano. The prawns were cooked in the desired manner and the sauce acted as a dip for the potatoes that were served with the dish. Adi took a burger in a red wine sauce with a grilled tomato. The burger was places in a middle of a red wine lake that gave the old-fashioned burger a unique twist. I should mention that we both took the potatoes with onion as side dish although we were told that the puree is most recommended. With the entrees we got Coffee Bar’s famous dish – the Antipasti. Eggplant, onion & tomatoes were grilled in the oven with exactly the needed amount of olive oil and were tasty.

Tartalettes

For deserts we had two tartelettes, one of them filled with dark chocolate and the other with Pttisier cream, topped with strawberries. The two tartelettes were light and easy way to finish a great night on the bar.
