Balbul worked under the tutelage of acclaimed chef Meir Adoni in Tel Aviv, before opening Alenbi Kitchen in New York serving a modern take on Israeli cuisine. At Chameleon - expect more of the same with a sharing menu, influenced by the rich cultures of Jewish kitchens, from across the Middle-East and Europe and inspired by Tel Aviv's burgeoning dining scene. Dishes include deconstructed falafel (pictured), aubergine carpaccio and shrimp shish barak.
Chameleon is housed in (and around) a Grade I listed former-church (originally designed by Sir John Soane) - moments from Regents Park. The first literation (soon to become a members' club) features a series of nine individually designed greenhouses and a large outdoor tented lounge - with nightly live performances. The expansive space is also slated to host weekly silent cinema nights, a weekend market and immersive art installations and wellness sessions.
Yemen brioche challah; deconstructed falafel; aubergine carpaccio; shrimp shish barak; Moroccan octopus and charcoal-grilled lamb sirloin with cabbage gratin.
