The Container: spirited cuisine

food gallery

A resolutely trendy spot nestled in the Jaffa port district, which mixes up Middle Eastern and North African dishes to a DJ beat.

At once bar, restaurant, and gallery, The Container is an all-in-one space overflowing with energy and enthusiasm. Ensconced in an old warehouse, the interiors have kept their industrial look with corrugated steel bar, brick walls, concrete floors, and bare fixtures.

Used as an art gallery, The Container exhibits paintings, posters, and wall hangings created by Israeli and international artists. The menu marries Middle Eastern and North African dishes, while putting the emphasis on seafood. Taste the Jerusalem artichokes with truffles and enoki mushrooms or gnocchi with ricotta, butter and sage.

Owner of the nearby deli, chef and jet setter Vince Muster adapts his menu daily. Dine outside, facing the fishing boats on the Mediterranean, before the DJs come on.
