Find yourself in Tel Aviv, Minneapolis, or the Big Apple and not sure where to eat? Try these restaurants:
Montefiore, Tel Aviv
Set in a restored 1930s building (on the ground floor of the hip new boutique hotel of the same name), this Tel Aviv eatery infuses Mediterranean ingredients with Vietnamese dishes to mouthwatering success. The consome with silky foie gras ravioli is a must.
Koyi Sushi, Minneapolis
Sushi in Minneapolis? That’s right and it’s as fresh as anywhere. There’s not much new or creative on the menu—they don’t try to reinvent the wheel (or roll, as it may be), but it’s well-prepared for a sushi spot in a landlocked city.
Olana, New York City
Taking its inspiration from the Hudson Valley, this Murray Hill eatery serves up locally sourced Nouveau American dishes like roasted pheasant with a sweet potato puree and potato gnocchi paired with buttery scallops.
