THE RESTAURANT BOUBALE

What could be stronger and more priceless than a grandmother's love?  The name "Boubalé" is a Yiddish term of endearment used by Ashkenazi grandmothers to express affection towards their loved ones and is magnified by Michelin-starred chef Assaf Granit.

Boubalé tells the story of a love affair with cooking that goes back to the dawn of time. It's a story that began on the edge of Eastern Europe, traveled to Jerusalem and then stopped off in Paris, in the Marais district. The concept of Boubalé revolves around the idea of generosity and warmth. It seeks to create an unforgettable experience by immersing guests in the lesser-known Eastern Europe culture, which is as lively and vibrant as a violin tune and as light-hearted as an impromptu gathering with friends. Boubalé aims to become the heart of the Marais district in Paris, pulsating with a celebration of life and the joy of sharing genuine emotions and is a place dedicated to the pleasure of being together.

AN UNEXPECTED
GOURMET JOURNEY

From Poland, Russia, Germany, Georgia, Lithuania and the Ukraine, Ashkenazi grandmothers made their journey to Israel.  When they arrived in Israel, they shared their recipes with their neighbors from Morocco, Syria, Iraq and elsewhere. This is how cooking comes alive. In this fusion of flavors, cooking comes alive, and differences are transformed into a source of real wealth. Boubaléis all this memory coming back to life and writing a new chapter in its odyssey.

THE LEGACY OF MICHELIN-STARRED
CHEF ASSAF GRANIT

For Boubalé, Michelin-starred chef Assaf Granit pays tribute to his childhood memories, his heritage and the family tradition, faithfully perpetuated over the centuries. In turn, he wanted to bring an extra touch of refined creativity and gourmandise to a cuisine that comes from the depths of the soul. So Boubalé dares the improbable: to give a contemporary sensuality to specialities reputed to be austere,through the sheer force of memory and talent. The menu dares to honor the mythical dishes of modest, little-known Eastern Europe cuisine. Yes, it took audacity to make it sexy and glamorous! Boubalé rises to the challenge of restoring it to its former glory. A gastronomic voyage into unknown territory, which transports you with the joy and exhilaration of first times. Boubalé reinvents Eastern Europe cuisine in color as no one has ever seen it, with a maximum coefficient of desirability. Irresistible !
