From the Ashes of Intifada and Recession Came (Arguably) Tel Aviv's Favorite Restaurant

A decade ago, a one-of-a-kind , around-the-clock eatery opened its gates across from the Tel Aviv municipality. The owners look back at the concept, the criticism and the copycats.

Mati and Ruti Broudo became known for having a golden touch - for opening their restaurants in the right place, at the right time and with the kind of concept that knocks out everything else nearby. Nevertheless, when the restaurateurs look back, they say: "We made every possible mistake," and complain about harassment by various authorities and opportunistic copycats.
