Whether it's Greek, Persian or Israeli, Mediterranean food is bomb. Even though ATL is one of the biggest foodie towns in the South, super authentic Israeli food in Atlanta is few and far between. The search is over because this amazing Tel Aviv-inspired spot just opened on the BeltLine and it has boozy milkshakes.
Rina is a casual Israel skewer house that just opened up shop on the Eastside BeltLine this Tuesday (January 14). The brand new spot, brought to you by the same owners of the ultra popular Bellina Alimentari, Aziza and Falafel Nation, is bringing even more unique excitement to Atlanta's trendiest neighborhood.
The 2,700-square-foot space, located in the Ford Factory Lofts, was designed to mimic a Tel Aviv beach cafe and has outdoor seating with BeltLine access.
You can now dig into the most mouth-watering Mediterranean eats and of course, alcohol-infused desserts. Rina offers super authentic fare including apps and snacks like several varieties of hummus, eggplant matbucha, tabbouleh, crispy cauliflower, za'atar labneh and halloumi.
After your warm up with mezze, you can go full force with entrees like amba chicken, beef kebabs, fried fish with falafel batter or pita sandwiches.
Hit up the bar to get your drink on with their one-of-a-kind boozy shakes including Turkish coffee or Tahini, honey and dates.
If you just want dessert without the buzz, you can get them virgin.
They even have genuine frozen Israeli cocktails including "The Tzuk" with spicy tequila, grapefruit and fresh herbs and frozen drinks like "Hof Alma" with passion fruit, gin, orange, lemon and arak.
The eatery and bar is made with family recipes passed down for generations so you know you're getting the real deal.
