Our Story  It all started back in 2004, when Eyal Shani and Shahar Segal started filming together a TV series called “food for thought”.

Eyal Shani, a genius chef, finished his role after 10 years as the head chef of his restaurant , “ocean” in Jerusalem. At the same time, Shahar Segal, an uprising star in the Israeli film scenery, was one of the busiest directors in Israel in films and commercials.

At 2008 they’ve decided to open a restaurant in Tel Aviv, HaSalon. Eyal was in charge of the food and Shahar on the music and vibe. The restaurant got famous for it’s pure food and a happy, nonchalant atmosphere that was like no other place.

Together they continued to open new resturants, such as North Abraxas, Miznon, Malka, Port Said, Romano and more, becoming the biggest food and culture group in Tel Aviv.

All of these places hold the same unique approach to food, using local and fresh ingredients keeping the dishes simple yet vibrant,  And a young atmosphere.

In 2011 They opened their first restaurant overseas, in Paris. Today they hold a total of 30 restaurants in locations such as Paris, NYC, Melbourne, Vienna, Singapore, Miami and Boston.

All our aspirations and all the reason we work for is to instill in people a sense of MAGIC

Our Concepts

  • HASALON

    Open 2-3 days a week with a 6-9 week waiting list and is a circus show of cooks.
    All the fresh ingredients are placed in front of the cooks and they cook not from memory but only from a visual stimulation of the raw materials placed in front of them while conveying the story of the person who created it and the experience of the place from which the cook came. There is no direction from above where to go, but absolute creativity.
    The food is full of the energy, in dreams and desires of the people who made it, as soon as the guest eats it, he gets up on the table and dances.
    Hasalon experience can be found in Tel Aviv, New York, Miami and Cannes.

  • ATA

    Since in 1934 For five decades, ATA designed and manufactured textiles within their local facilities, and became an Israeli icon of quality, until it closed in 1985. The Better Guys company decided it was time for ATA’s revival and launched three stores in the heart of Tel Aviv. ATA’s founding vision was to create a people’s brand.
    More than 80 years after ATA’s emergence, we think this vision is still relevant and we work hard to maintain it, making clothes that serve people, whether on the field or in an urban setting. The beauty of the city and its people, and the relationship between them, is where Ata's heartbeat lies.

We have been given the privilege, meal after meal, person after person, to give HAPPINESS to another person, to a stranger we have never met before
