Cameo in Zion... New Restaurant in the Hatachana Complex in Tel Aviv
Cameo is one of the hottest new restaurant-bar in the old train complex ,Hatachana, Neve Tzedek,Phone:03-558-9855
Like any cosmopolitan city whose entertainment economy is heavily geared towards the gastronomic, the White City can sometimes overwhelm with new places to try. Luckily, one new restaurant stands firmly above the pack: Cameo, a new venture by local chef Eric Kiel in the old train station complex.The focus of the creative menu is on modern Mediterranean cuisine, with a strong emphasis on fresh, local ingredients. Diners can indulge in new twists on old classics, such as the tuna tartare with shallots and a chili vinaigrette, or papaya salad with peanuts, mint and coriander.
Amongst the mains: chicken liver with mushrooms, onions, figs and balsamic vinaigrette – but the pièce de résistance of the menu is no doubt the foie gras served with brioche and yellow chutney. Vegetarians can also get in on the action with a Loretta cheese dish served with colorful cherry tomatoes, olives, and basil.Dining at Cameo becomes a multi sensory experience with its hotspot sprawling alfresco bar and night-out feel. The proprietors have constructed a fine atmosphere without being stuffy. The indoor restaurant boasts a sleek lounge bar, various nooks for dining and décor inspired by the Rococo period, while the outdoor open terrace is all about the party – playing host to live music with private cabanas for intimate parties.
Ready to get the night started with bottle service? With its breezy outdoor space and eclectic menu, Cameo is undoubtedly the perfect summer venue for summer wining and dining.
