Parallel brings together the experience and background of the three Ozery brothers, Alon, Guy, and Aharon, to create this unique space and product.
“We grew up in a home where sesame butter (tahini) was consumed regularly alongside flavourful Mediterranean cuisine. Parallel was born from our history and love for sesame butter. It’s part of our culture and upbringing, and we want to share that with you.
There are few ingredients that are as versatile, nutritious, and just as damn tasty as sesame butter. That’s why we decided to make it in all its forms: try it in our dressings, salads, dips, bowls, and our famous homemade halva, and seed what is possible.
The three of us share a passion for simple meals with fresh ingredients, bold flavors, and innovative techniques. That, along with our love for good coffee, art, music, and community, is what shapes the Parallel experience.”

    Best food and great environment! Food comes quickly, which is great for some, but I personally like dishes spaced out a bit.

    Food at Parallel is outstanding! The ambiance is great as well. Unfortunately we had a very rude and unfriendly hostess. Fortunately the rest of the staff was amiable and pleasant. Hope the manager realizes that people go out to have a good time and do not appreciate “teenage attitude” when visiting the restaurant.

    The food and cocktails were incredible, as always! The only feedback I would offer is that the food came out in very quick succession. To really enjoy each dish and to have more room on the table it would be great if the dishes came out with more time between each one. All in all, great experience and fabulous food!

    Amazing food, the shakushuka was delicious as were the pitas. Would definitely go back to try their hummus.

    Bringing middle-eastern food to a higher level – very fine and elaborate. The falafel was great! Service was very friendly and efficient.
