If I tell you that Nanuchka is a Georgian restaurant, it’s like I said nothing. Nanuchka is named after the owner Nana Shrier. You probably guessed Georgian is the “thing” of the place, but what you’d never guess, is that in early 2014 Nana went all vegan and the restaurant became 100% vegan as well. I’m pretty sure it’s the first vegan Georgian restaurant in the world.
Nanuchka has 2 areas – a restaurant and a bar. The restaurant’s design has a slight Soviet-like touch in a good way and I find it perfect for some special events like birthdays, business meetings or if you just want to indulge yourself. The bar is more casual, perfect for a date, after work drink or night out.
Why I love this spot?
1. Original menu which makes carnivores forget about meat
2. Excellent service – unfortunately you can’t take it as a given in Tel Aviv
3. Cosmopolitan experience – vegan food in a Georgian restaurant in the most thrilling city in The Middle East
You’ll find a lot of unfamiliar words on the menu, so don’t hesitate to ask for assistance from the waiter. You definitely should order different dishes for sharing. Cutlery and Pilaf are my favorite ones! No matter what you get to eat, do yourself a favor and order a bottle of Georgian wine Kindzmarauli (trust me, you can’t stop after one glass). It’s a must!
Every night different DJ take over the bar and party mode is on!
