Assaf Granit

Palomar, Barbary, Shabour, Balagan, Mona, Machneyuda, Yudaleh, so many places that we love and the person behind these is none other than chef Assaf Granit, the chef who changed the rules of the games from Jerusalem to the world. His partnership with our Tom Dixon created the amazing and delicious ‘Coal Office’ restaurant in London, which left us quite speechless.
