Reasons to be happy

Tel Avivian beach vibes, upbeat middle eastern tunes, and delicious scents of falafel and sizzling skewers welcomes you into Rina. Casual, fresh, and bright plates put a unique spin on traditional Israeli street food and hospitality traditions. Some recipes, including the falafel, have been passed down for generations through Baum’s (our owner!) family and were first served at Rina’s own falafel stand in Israel in the 1950s. It's no wonder she chose to name the restaurant after the woman at the heart of some of the fondest memories of Baum's upbringing. Rina also mean happiness in Hebrew and that's exactly how we intend to make you feel.
