When aficionados of local standards like garlicky hummus, skewered shish kebab, schnitzel, and bean soup argue hotly about the merits of their favorite eateries, Pinati comes up as a leading contender. In the very heart of Downtown, this is the original location of Pinati, which means "corner" in Hebrew. It's now a chain, but this simple spot remains a convenient place to take the weight off your feet and rub shoulders with the locals. Not for long, though: your
table will soon be in demand, and you will have to share at peak times.
