A new culinary experience at Luca

Luca once again leads the way, with new and energetic originality in the field of culinary events, having recently inaugurated the ‘open kitchen’ − the first of its kind in the country; in which the preparation of the dishes takes place right in front of the guests.This unique idea allows kitchen staff to function as a high-quality restaurant in every respect; as in a restaurant − here, too, menus are placed on the tables, and guests can order and enjoy any dish they desire, with no restrictions of quantity and time; the kitchen staff works for the entire evening and, at any given moment, they will create dishes made from fresh, high-quality raw materials. The advantages are obvious: there is no need to sit waiting for the main course until late in the evening; there are no breaks in the proceedings and the event flows naturally; each guest can decide what dish he/she wants to start with, and no one goes home without having enjoyed a delicious dessert.

Our Staff


    I was born in Morocco, in the colorful city of Casablanca, known as a gastronomic center for its unique foods which have won fame across the world.

    I owe my love for food and creativity to my mother, whom in my childhood introduced me to rich and varied foods of her making.

    Starting 1980 I have been creating and specializing in the field of catering, while even as I starting out, I was appointed as the chef of Gan Oranim, the legendary event venue of Tel Aviv’s bohemian social milieu, until the opening of Luca, a venue always aspiring for excellence without compromise!



    I was only 15 when I’d first caught the catering bug, as I joined my father, Rafael, to work in catering.

    The fast pace, the smell of the kitchen in the morning and the ceaseless creation, have all stuck with me since then.

    I have dreamt of Luca many nights before its opening, of the vision and challenge I am constantly facing, of creating unique and varied hosting experiences in the field of catering and to continue to set Luca as a leader in innovation and uncompromising quality.
