Get to know me better

Classically trained chef with 7+ years of experiences

I am a professional chef who has worked from New York City, to Los Angeles and now in Tel Aviv. I have worked in a variety of culinary settings and love to blur the lines between traditional technique and innovative creations. Beyond food, I love to create a warm and intimate experiences, borrowing inspiration from the Japanese concept of wabi sabi.

At Wabi Sababi we borrow largely from the Japanese concept of Wabi Sabi in the food at atmosphere we create. Focusing on highlighting beauty from things in their most natural form. With this, we provide a unique aesthetic and sense of simplistic comfort.

Sababa, often said as sababi, is Israeli slang for 'all good'.

The name Wabi Sababi is a perfect representation of what we aim to bring to the table (literally).

Our team is comprised of internationals, all with Israeli roots, allowing us to fuse cultures and reimagine private dining in Tel Aviv.

We can't wait to host you.
