brut is a small, deeply personal wine bistro in tel aviv, from the hearts and minds of, yair yosefi, and omer ben gal.
Brut's cuisine is inspired by Yair and Omer's shared love of the classic French and Italian kitchens, while remaining steadfastly rooted in local Middle Eastern tradition. Brut utilizes ingredients which grow and flourish in the levant, such as lamb & yogurt from Nazareth, fruit, and vegetables from Hebron, spices from Tel Aviv's Levinsky Market, and fish from the Mediterranean. The menu features a stable of classics alongside an ever-shifting selection of seasonal dishes, often invented the very same day they're served. Brut's extensive wine list was crafted in similar fashion: it is at once a love letter to all things French and Italian, while also championing Israel's emerging winemakers. Yair and Omer import distinctive European wines from small-scale producers in Bourgogne and Piedmont, and work with Israeli wineries on blends that are grown and bottled exclusively for Brut. Brut is an ongoing celebration and examination of local terroir. This doesn't just mean the physical land and its raw materials, but also the culture, communities and yes, even the conflict, that has informed the land's very character".
