Parallel brings together the experience and background of the three Ozery brothers, Alon, Guy, and Aharon, to create this unique space and product.
“We grew up in a home where sesame butter (tahini) was consumed regularly alongside flavourful Mediterranean cuisine. Parallel was born from our history and love for sesame butter. It’s part of our culture and upbringing, and we want to share that with you.
There are few ingredients that are as versatile, nutritious, and just as damn tasty as sesame butter. That’s why we decided to make it in all its forms: try it in our dressings, salads, dips, bowls, and our famous homemade halva, and seed what is possible.
The three of us share a passion for simple meals with fresh ingredients, bold flavors, and innovative techniques. That, along with our love for good coffee, art, music, and community, is what shapes the Parallel experience.”

    I find myself always coming back here for dinners and brunches because the food is so good. Got the strawberry basil lemonade as a mimosa and it was amazing. The shakshuka was so delicious, I couldn't stop eating it despite being full

    We love this restaurant! The food is excellent. The only downside is the parking, but our server mentioned that there are plans to put in meter parking on Geary Street which would be a bonus.
