Start-Up Nation Central (SNC), an NGO whose mission is to connect the world to Israeli innovation, has launched L28 Culinary Platform, Israel's first chef accelerator restaurant. The restaurant is located on the ground floor of Start-Up Nation Central's new headquarters, designed by local architecture firm Kimmel Eshkolot Architects. L28 Culinary Platform is operated by Yarzin-Sella Group (Cafe Italia, Magazzino, Taqueria). Named after its address on Tel Aviv's storied Lilienblum Street, the restaurant boasts an innovative culinary concept, which sees a new and promising Israeli chef take up residence in the kitchen every six months. L28 Culinary Platform is a unique venture in the Israeli culinary space: the idea is to promote young chefs who would not normally have the opportunity to open their own restaurant. Twice a year, a different chef will be tapped to take over the kitchen and will be granted a full creative license to explore his or her own culinary concept. Chefs are provided with laboratory conditions, including mentoring by professional staff so they can create an experience in the best possible conditions. The goal is to provide an industry entry point for fresh Israeli culinary talent and to highlight Israeli culinary innovation to local and foreign audiences.
