From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Within walking distance of the Tel Aviv Museum and Opera House, Martha serves excellent Middle Eastern dishes (lentil salad with eggplant puree), Western dishes (sirloin meatballs) and a few that fuse the two (halvah parfait on a chocolate brownie).

We loved: Grilled spring chicken.

Insider tip: Try the house-made vodkas, infused with cinnamon, lemongrass or ginger.
