Miznon brilliantly combines the distinctive culinary creativity of Michelin-starred Chef Eyal Shani with the best of international cuisines.

We believe in taking fresh and seasonally inspired ingredients to create a new take on Mediterranean street food.

Our vision is to take the flavour of each city and translate it into a pita. To take each city's energies, groove, longings, and beauty and express it all in our food.

Ingredients of exceptional quality are sourced seasonally and locally, whenever possible, bringing to life an energetic and disconcerting culinary experience.


Born in Jerusalem in 1959, Eyal Shani is a famed restauranteur, TV personality and self-taught chef who is widely regarded as a local food hero.

Best known for his fervent passion for vegetables, Shani’s culinary passion was first instilled by his grandfather, an agronomist and dedicated vegan who exposed him to local markets, fields and vineyards from a young age.

Besides the highly-acclaimed contemporary casual eatery chain Miznon which has become an international sensation with numerous outlets around the world, Shani also owns and manages restaurants like Port Said, Romano, North Abraxas, Malka and fine dining restaurant HaSalon.

Before Shani garnered international acclaim, his first foray into F&B was his restaurant “Oceanus" in his hometown of Jerusalem. There, he developed a unique culinary language based on Mediterranean products: olive oil, fish, tahini, fresh seasonal vegetables and the tomato – essentials in his repertoire that also laid the foundation and inspired his journey to creating Miznon.

Today, Shani is distinguished by his signature culinary style that embraces farm-to-table practices, supporting local farmers and a minimalistic approach to seasoning. At Miznon, he has conjured a vibrant and high-energy restaurant style based on ‘Miznon magic’, an enlightened approach that promises an experience like no other.

Shani has also been a judge on the past six seasons of MasterChef Israel. Recently, Eyal Shani’s SHMONÉ was awarded 1 Michelin Star.
