2018 was not a kind year for many restaurants in Israel. We witnessed a raft of closings, from restaurants that had been around for decades to some that had been open only a few months. Among those lamentably gone for good are Osteria da Fiorella, a kosher restaurant owned by Italian olim for more than 30 years, plus a number that were reviewed in these pages: Bellini, after a run of a quarter-century; Pundak Deluxe, one of the best to serve authentic American BBQ; and Shiratoya, Israel’s foremost izakaya (informal Japanese-pub style) restaurant.

On the brighter side, there were several impressive debuts, as well as noteworthy trends. Chefs Yogev Yehros and Avi Bitton returned to helm new restaurants in Tel Aviv, and Jerusalem’s Mahaneh Yehuda added more great places to enjoy casual food. At the same time, top chefs continued to open street food places that attract customers with tasty fare at affordable prices.
