Abbale Telavivian Kitchen

Abbale Telavivian Kitchen, a chic, Israeli-inspired restaurant from hospitality entrepreneurs Omer Horev and Executive Chef Sam Gorenstein, opened in March 2021 in Miami Beach’s South of Fifth neighborhood. Abbale brings the flavors of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine to Miami – Gorenstein’s imprint can be found in many of the Syrian and Latin flavors on the menu, while Horev’s Moroccan roots are the inspiration for several dishes as well. Plates go beyond typical American expectations of Middle Eastern menus and feature dishes one would find in a café in Tel Aviv – fresh food that showcases the melting pot of flavors from the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner, featuring nisnushim (snacks), coffee and tea, craft beers, and wines from regional, boutique producers with a focus on Israeli selections. Offering a bevy of dishes perfect for sharing, diners can make a meal of several salatim, salads, pastries, and burekas as well as entrée sized plates, pitas, and Jerusalem bagels. Abbale Telavivian Kitchen is located at 864 Commerce Street on Miami Beach. Open Tuesday – Sunday, lunch is served daily from 11 AM to 4:30 PM.
