Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli speaks about her favourite places to eat in Tel Aviv
· Brasserie is a 24/7 French restaurant (how original!) where a friend of a friend of a Trip Advisor commenter once saw Bar. They're known for their Friday and Saturday brunches, which are quite pricey. The rest of the time you can expect to pay anywhere from $10 to $50 per person for dishes ranging from breakfasts through pastas all the way to hamburgers.
Address: 70 Ibn Gvirol, Tel Aviv.
· Benedict is a 24/7 cafe where it's always morning and where Bar hung out last December (Hebrew and no pics, don't bother clicking). The menu is literally intercontinental, bringing together breakfasts from Israel, England, France, and the great state of Texas. The house specialty is - wait for it - eggs benedict. Portions are extremely generous but you still have to make a concentrated effort to get above $20/person.
Address: 171 Ben Yehuda, Tel Aviv.
· If you're looking to expand your horizons beyond 24/7 fare, there's the Tel Aviv outpost of international Brazilian-Japanese fusion chain Sushishamba where Bar got spotted last October. The menu includes the green bean tempura and edamame that she munched on, plus the expected array of rolls, salads, and teriyakis. Prices can get as high as $70/person.
Address: 27 Habarzel Street, Tel Aviv.
