Ahad Haam & Nahmani streets

Tel Aviv travel guide

Ahad Haam & Nahmani streets are located in the heart of Tel Aviv, and you should make note of them as part of your “getting to know Tel Aviv” tour, either fitting them into your Rothschild Blvd excursion or dedicating them some time of their own.

Ahad Haam (a.k.a Ehad Ha’am or Echad Ha’am) means “one of the people” and is the pen name of Asher Ginzberg, a Jewish Russian who was one of the founders of Zionism. The street named after him runs parallel to the famous Rothschild Blvd, and hosts a mix of restaurants, cafes, art galleries and more. It meets with Nahmani Street half way through, and continues towards north with similar offering of typical Tel Aviv Bauhaus buildings and great atmosphere.

Some of the recommendations for this heart of Tel Aviv neighborhood include:

Sightseeing

Some of the nicer Bauhaus buildings of the city are located on Ahad Haam and Nahmani streets, so when you walk around the neighborhood, don’t forget to look up and enjoy the wide porches, small windows and smooth lines of the International architectural design, which gave the city of Tel Aviv its “white city” UNESCO World Heritage site title.

A landmark attraction for every walking tour is the Pagoda House on the corner of Nahmani and Montefiore streets, designed by architect Alexander Levy in 1925. Inspired by a cafe in the United States, the Pagoda House merges Oriental and Western styles. Since it’s privately owned you won’t be able to see it from the inside, but sitting on the lovely King Albert Square, just across the street, will allow you to appreciate it just the same.

Coffee Shops

The famous Café Tamar, which has been serving stale coffee to a mix of Israel’s top politicians, journalists and artists for over 40 years, is located in the corner of Shenkin and Ahad Ha’am streets. A popular kosher coffee shop, Cafe Ginzburg, can be found at 55 Ahad H’aam St., and a small library-café, popular with local writers and artists is Café Noah, at 93 Ahad Ha’am St., where you can enjoy the small garden when the weather permits (which is almost all the time). Another great place to enjoy the morning sun is Café-bakery Ben Ami, at King Albert Square, 22 Nahmani St.

Restaurants

One of the best Italian restaurants in Tel Aviv is Pronto, at 26 Nahmani St., a “Trattoria Italiana” serving great seafood and typical dishes for two decades. Just around the corner is Café Noir at 43 Ahad Ha’am with huge breakfasts and large bistro food throughout the day. If you happen to be vegetarian, Mezze at 51 Ahad Ha’am is a small neighborhood joint just for you.

Art Galleries

Noga Gallery at 60 Ahad Ha’am St., Gallery 39 at 39 Nahmani St.

Habima theatre

Habima theatre

Habima is a theatre in Israel that is important because it is helping to revive Hebrew language and culture. The theatre is also committed to promoting issues of national importance, holding conversations with diverse communities, and fostering the next generation of theatre professionals. History In 1958, the Israeli government declared Habima to be Israel's national theatre. That same year, Habima was awarded the Israel Prize for its significant contribution to Israeli culture and society. Habima began as a professional Hebrew theatre in Moscow, before immigrating to the land of Israel and eventually constructing a theatre hall in Tel Aviv. Today, around 120 of the best actors in Israel make up Habima's remarkable company, which includes both young and veteran actors. The company is conducted by a team of creators who are at the top of their fields in Israel and around the world. Architect Ram Karmi was chosen to redesign Habima, a historic building. He is experienced in designing many different types of buildings and won the Israel Prize. His design for Habima combined old and new elements to create a traditional yet innovative design.

Toto Restaurant Tel Aviv: A Delicious Transformation with Unchanged Favorites

Toto Restaurant Tel Aviv: A Delicious Transformation with Unchanged Favorites

Toto Restaurant in Tel Aviv may have undergone a massive change in terms of its design, but it still manages to serve up the same great food that has made it a favorite among its loyal customers. The menu features five different categories, including cold dishes, pizza, pasta, seafood, and steakhouse, as well as a separate menu of special dishes. One of the standout items on the menu is the spicy pizza and chestnut gnocchi, both of which have become flagship dishes for Toto. Other highlights include the whole eggplant roasted over an open fire, beef tartare, and thinly sliced smoked Spanish tuna from the cold dishes section. The pizza section features a variety of mouth-watering options, including a white pizza with wild mushrooms and bacon and a salami pizza with black olives and purple onions. In the pasta section, the potato and ricotta gnocchi with salted butter, chestnuts, and Parmesan is a must-try. Seafood lovers will enjoy the fried sea fish with vinaigrettes, grilled sea bass, and charcoal-grilled locust kebab. Meat lovers can indulge in beef fillet and foie gras with veal stock and morel mushrooms or choose from a selection of steaks on the bone. Although the menu has remained largely unchanged to preserve many of the restaurant's favorite dishes, the restaurant itself has undergone a major transformation. The bar has been repositioned, and the kitchen is now open and impressively large. The new design is invested, prestigious, and impressive, making for a great dining experience. Toto has had its ups and downs over the years, including the firing of founder Yaron Shalu in 2014 and a short-lived connection with chef Moshik Roth. However, Shalu persevered and found new buyers who bought the restaurant back for him, allowing him to return to his baby and close the circle in an emotional way. Overall, Toto Restaurant Tel Aviv is still a great spot for delicious food and a new, impressive atmosphere.
