DINNER AT CLARO Dinner at Claro, a farm-to-table restaurant run by Ran Shmueli, one of Israel’s most beloved chefs, is a must. One of Tel Aviv’s finest dining spots, Claro has a warm, inviting atmosphere and a menu strong on influences from around the Mediterranean, including France, Spain, Turkey, Greece, Lebanon, and Israel. Located in the historic Sarona complex, this dinner was one of the highlights of our Israel visit. The James Beard Award-winning chef Jonathan Waxman declared that the meal at Claro reflects the field-to-table culture espoused by Alice Waters. In fact, this was Waxman’s first visit to Israel, and he concluded that the use of fresh ingredients is the key to Israel’s vibrant food scene. “I’ve been happy to see that wherever we’ve gone, the kibbutz lifestyle of harvesting, working together, cooking, and breaking bread together is alive and well,” he said. karlitz.com SocialLifeMagazine.com
