The Six TLV, 110 Jabotinsky Street, Tel Avivby Sarit Goffen | 27.03.14
The Six TLV is a local French bistro that feels like it was taken from the streets of Paris to be place dead-smack in the middle of Tel Aviv.
Chef Amir Markowitz and his partners from the Italkia Ba’Tachana drew inspiration from Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohème – adorning the front of the restaurant.
Although it is a neighborhood restaurant, as chef Amir describes it, it seems as though a lot of thought and care went into creating an authentic French scene, with impressive red couches, short curtain that give off a Parisian vibe and an outside section with little red tables and front-facing chairs.
The menu, created by chef Markowitz, is a product of a research journey in the streets of Paris, where he worked for three years. It incorporates classical French dishes such as a classic onion soup with pieces of baguette and grated cheese, Nicoise Salad with anchovies and seared red tuna, Bouillabaisse soup – Marseille style – alongside current dishes such as blue crab gnocchi or baby calamari and scallops. Each combine the freshest and finest ingredients coming from France.
Even the baked goods are handmade and contribute to the experience. And much like in Paris, as the evening falls, The Six TLV acquires a gentile and elegant façade with the smell of French wine wafting in the air and the promise of a romantic bistro experience.
