Bistro Ya Pan is a contemporary Bistro restaurant and passion project of renowned chef Yuval Ben Neriah. Inspired by the world of Japanese street food, everything about Ya Pan is an interpretation of Chef Ben Neriah’s experience traveling and eating around Japan. This particular restaurant, which opened in 2017, takes us visitors on a similar adventure that includes the highest level of taste and service, while remaining casual and affordable.
Japan has a chic, modern atmosphere and a highly creative menu, that will leave visitors with an Asian inspired meal that has an authentic Western twist. Visitors may order from a plethora of Asian-style meat or seafood dishes – such as Sushi, Shrimp Kiatsu, a 72 hour braised curry stew or delicious marrow-infused Ramen noodles. But keep in mind there are always options to add more familiar elements to the meal, like a side of French fries or a delightful Yaki Hamburger.
The informal dining area is intimate, designed by local superstar architect Pitsou Kedem, along with Sigal Baranowitz and Irene Goldberg, who create a modern experience that fuses Japanese balance with Bistro familiarity.
