Israeli chef Assaf Granit’s hit Paris restaurant gets Michelin star

Israeli chefs Assaf Granit and Uri Navon’s Parisian restaurant Shabour has won its first Michelin star, an internationally recognized sign of excellence.

It is a first for the Israeli duo, known for Jerusalem’s famous MachneYuda restaurant and London’s award-winning The Palomar.

Shabour opened in late 2019 and has been closed for much of the time since then due to the coronavirus pandemic, but during its short time in business it shot to the top of the city’s food scene.
