Seafood arrives directly from Tel Aviv’s Carmel Market into George & John’s acclaimed kitchen. Synthesising flavours from his Jewish-Moroccan heritage with the freshest catch from the port, chef Tomer Tal allows each of his dishes to tell a story. The house, a 19th-century construction in the heart of the city’s Jaffa neighbourhood, is a source of continual inspiration to the chef and his dedicated team. The founding brothers, after whom the establishment is named, set up shop in one of the country’s first modern hotels; the rest is history. Now, the restaurant features a wine bar and garden, in which a large charcoal grill spins out some of the best dishes. Hand-chopped kebabs are a familiar favourite and octopus carpaccio with fluffy hallah bread, homemade harissa spread and aubergine is Tal’s speciality.
