Cafe Landwer | Boston, MA

“A successful dinner is one that lasts a while and one where everyone leaves happy. It’s a meal where we didn’t just wolf food down, rather something else happened at the table. That is the goal.” Laurie David

Recently, I was invited to check out the new fall menu at the Cleveland Circle location of Cafe Landwer. With one other location in Boston ( their  flagship United States location) they bring with them flavors, culture and a unique spin on Israeli cuisine. Everything from the appetizers to the dessert was interesting and I left with many favorites from this new fall menu.

Having been in Tel Aviv for many, many years they have perfected what they want from their restaurants and fly in chefs to teach the cuisine to the chefs here in the US. Quality is key here at Cafe Landwer and the flavors you experience in Tel Aviv must match what you get here. I appreciated this about them, in more ways than one. Remaining true to your roots is something I am such a huge proponent of and when I can experience it in food it really just makes me happy. I left this dinner not only full and happy but anxious to bring family and friends, so they too could experience the cuisine I had.

This coffee wall is incredible!

Loved the decor at Cafe Landwer

I had many favorites, but I am going to share all the dishes I ate with you so that you too can experience this just a little bit and hopefully this makes you want to take a trip of your own to Cafe Landwer.

  • A huge shoutout to Adelina and Mike who were our hosts for the evening and made our experience at Cafe Landwer so smooth and effortless.
