Fodor's Review

Nestled into a stonewalled garden, Mona's working fireplace and tree growing through the indoor section give a rustic setting to eminently modern Israeli cooking overseen by two chef-owners. Start your night with the light, fresh pea soup or the award-winning crab bisque. Continue to a bright, spicy tuna tartare served over wasabi. Do not miss the beautifully prepared beef fillet with sweetbreads and purple cabbage. Vegetarians will seek refuge in a few salads. For dessert, try the sour cream and szechuan sorbet over nectarine compote. Wait until later in the evening if you just want to order drinks at the excellent bar. Reservations essential on weekends.
