Chef Eyal Shani

Shani was born in Jerusalem in 1959. His culinary passion was first instilled in him by his grandfather, an agronomist and a dedicated vegan, who exposed him to local markets, fields, and vineyards from a young age.

In 1989 he opened his first restaurant "Oceanus" in his home town of Jerusalem. There, he developed a unique culinary language based on regional Mediterranean products: olive oil, fish, tahini, fresh seasonal vegetables and of course, the tomato.

Since opening his fine dining restaurant, HASALON, in Tel Aviv, Shani is now the inspiration and the leading chef of 40 highly successful restaurants worldwide. 

Joined by his partner, Shahar Segal, the duo operates Port Said, Romano, Miznon, North Abraxas, HASALON and Malka in Tel Aviv, as well as Miznon locations in Vienna, Paris, Melbourne, Singapore and New York.

He is considered to be one of the leading figures in the Israeli culinary scene, starring in the TV series "Food for Thought" and appearing on the panel of judges during the past ten seasons of Israeli "Master Chef."

About HaSalon Las Vegas

Eyal Shani's journey with his renowned restaurant Ha'Salon in Tel Aviv began in 2012.

The restaurant features an open kitchen where guests can witness the culinary magic unfold. The atmosphere is lively, with energetic music playing in the background, contributing to the vibrant ambiance. It is only fitting that this one of a kind celebratory dining experience has found its newest home in Las Vegas, a city known for its ability to push you to the edge.
