“HATACHANA (In Hebrew: "התחנה") A train station on the Jaffa-Jerusalem line, located between the sea shore and the Neveh Zedek neighborhood, operated from 1892 to 1948. This was the first railway line between Little Asia and Egypt and the first means of transportation to replace the camel as the mode of transport for heavy loads taken over long distances. Today, the railway station complex covers an area of 20 dunams, with 22 buildings from various periods, which have been carefully restored. Inside the complex are restaurant shops and more. The station complex includes, among other things, the buildings of the historic train station, the Templar Willand family and its factory. ”

Italian Restaurant
$$
“Pronto is one of the oldest Italian restaurants in Tel Aviv that serves creatively presented pasta, meat and fish dishes. The formal, yet friendly and unpretentious ambiance makes it a popular spot amongst a sophisticated crowd. Every Monday there is an additional menu with Vegan specials. If you are a truffle fan like us, you HAVE to order the simple “Tagliolini al Tartufo” (94 NIS), it’s absolutely mouth-watering! Warning: prices are high and portions are small. Be sure to check out the business lunch Sunday-Thursday.”

Burger Joint

“Some will say this is the best burger in town. At the end of Rothschild Ave (Which is a nice avenue to walk through), you will find this small burger booth. My New Yorker friends will immediately recognize that the chef, Omer Miller, took his inspiration from Shake Shak and Fuku's crispy chicken sandwich. Note: Be prepared to stand in line... Let me know if it worth it...”
