SA.AL&CO creates the City Sessions in addition to the myriad of city guides available to introduce cities the way they ought to be experienced and are cherished by like-minded men – listing places that are sometimes cheeky, often elegant, but always sophisticated.

Its a homage to the sophisticated travel experience for men.


Around 800 years ago the city of Moscow was founded by Yuri Dolgorukiy.

In June Moscow will host the biggest football competition of the world, the FIFA World Cup, thus we would like to introduce our City Guide to those that are passionate about soccer and visit this spectacular city cheering their team on to do their best.

BRASSERIE M&R

Located in the heart of Tel Aviv opposite Rabin Square, this immensely popular French restaurant gives diners the impression they were whisked away to Paris. From its meticulously detailed Art Deco interior to its nicotine stained ceiling and hardwood floors, the Brasserie is a paean to the traditional Parisian grand brasserie.

Every detail of the décor is sophisticated but not stuffy. The food is equally refined and meticulously prepared. Open 24 hours a day, Brasserie is one of the only places in Tel Aviv that is hopping both day and night

NORTH ABRAXAS

The food at this flamboyant place is relegated to secondary importance – here, it's all about the vibe. Sitting at the bar and watching the chefs and waiters chop, flambée, plate, sing and down arak shots with customers is fabulous fun, and the modern Israeli menu with its pizzas, colourful vegetable dishes and flavourful slow-cooked meats will please most diners.

For one of the best meals in the city, take your place at one of the tables spilling out onto the sidewalk or alongside the small, chic bar. The menu changes daily, depending on what Eyal Shani, its celebrity chef, finds to be the freshest produce or catch of the day. A couple of delectable dishes are often featured, including lamb shawarma marinated overnight in wine grapes from the Judean Hills, and cold shrimp with green onions and tomatoes served in piping-hot homemade pita. If you arrive without reservations, you may be able to find room at the bar.

If you are looking for a unique dinning experience with a young authentic atmosphere, and you don’t mind the wait you will LOVE this place!

MIZNON

Eyal Shani has invented gourmet fast food! The menu offers pita with various fillings including minute steak (44 NIS), entrecôte with fried egg (37 NIS), and ratatouille (34 NIS). All the ingredients are fresh and of the highest standard, especially the delicious and soft pita. We also recommend ordering the DIVINE baked cauliflower (32 NIS) to share with whomever you’re with. Whilst you’re waiting for your name to be called, help yourself to the pita slices and delicious tehina and salsa which they leave for customers to nibble on (be careful not to fill up!)

When a friend visits from abroad, we always make Miznon a priority- it is a great place to experience the loud and chaotic Israeli atmosphere along with some delicious Israeli-style food.

As if it couldn’t get better, they now deliver too!

When you hear the word “pita,” you may automatically think of falafel, shawarma, and sabich. At Miznon, celebrity Chef Eyal Shani is redefining the pita as a serving vessel for a plethora of mouthwatering meat and vegetarian options. Just about anything you can fit in a pita is on offer here, including a rich and meaty minute steak, shakshuka, chicken liver, and kebabs. Vegans and vegetarians alike can find tasty fare here too, with a slow-cooked ratatouille that melts in your mouth and the juicy head of a whole cauliflower that oozes flavor. Paired with the loud and lively atmosphere and the free pita and tahini nibbles, Miznon is the Mecca of Israeli street food. Don’t forget to visit their other locations at 1 HaNechoshet St and 30 King George.

NIGHT KITCHEN

      A bit south of Rothschild avenue, in the corner of lilinblum street, appears an old building from the 1920’s. his bright yellow halo gives away the feeling that this is a typical residence building in the center of the city, on the front of it, an owl standing on a fork is submerged on the wall, and beneath it the name “Night Kitchen”. 

On the walls, a variety of ethnic kitchenware from all the nations & eras, and the open kitchen, gave away that cozy warm - home feeling we looked for.

POPINA

Popina, the Orel Kamahi chef restaurant, serves a variety of meticulously prepared dishes that creatively combine seasonal raw materials from Israel and abroad and are served in its unique and elegant style.

The menu in the restaurant offers an unique experience, the diners can choose and focus on vegetables, meats, fish and seafood. The chef and the kitchen staff undergo five different cooking methods: pickling, steaming, baking, roasting and long cooking. This division comes from the restaurant’s world view, which views kitchen work as a focal point for culinary entertainment, and shares the proper respect for the ingredients of the dish and its preparation.

This concept, which is also reflected in the building of the restaurant located in a magical stone house in Neve Tzedek, allows an observation of the kitchen work in the center of the space, which is designed from each of the tables or from the wide bar that surrounds it. Thus, diners can observe the work of the team working hard to prepare the meal while participating and communicating with the local audience.

This is a really impressive restaurant. Our only criticism, all the while strongly recommending it, is that the portions are too small. The menu is split up into 5 cooking techniques and they recommend mixing between styles and sharing. Similar to the creative flavour combinations in the dishes, there’s a selection of really interesting cocktails. For the less daring, the wine list is extensive. The beautifully decorated restaurant offers dining in the main room, which has a nice buzz and a view of the open space kitchen, or a more relaxed feel in the terrace. It is just on the border of Neve Zedek so it’s a great location if you want to go for a drink in the Tachana or on Rothschild after.

Baranowitz & Kronenberg were inspired in their design by landscapes of the east; fertile valleys, rice terraces and mountain tops, topolopompo celebrates this morphology and introduces abundant possibilities for social gatherings along the route from the” valley” to the “mountain top”.
