    Bar 51 is located just next to the beach of Tel Aviv, and the nice cool sea breeze during dinner time is just perfect with a glass of wine. Bar 51 is one of those gastro-bars that put a lot of thought and effort into the food they serve, alongside warmth and simplicity. The wine list is changed every month to stay on top of the scene – and even try and lead it. One of my favourite dishes to go with the wines is the continuously changing cheese platter with unique and hard to find cheeses. If you are in the mood for something special, ask the team about the “off-menu” wines where you can dis...
