Good Food In Jerusalem

  • 4

I will be in Jerusalem for a few nights in December and am looking for a couple of moderately priced restaurants and a couple of pricier restaurants. Ideally I would like good food (the last time I was there, I was a student and could not afford to eat out much). A nice view (of the Old City) or something like that might be nice, as well. I am looking for an Israeli experience...something that I cannot get in the US.

Thanks in advance for your help.

  1. A couple of recommendations: Darna - a great Morrocan resataurant, very nice atmosphere and food. Dined there a few years ago with a group of top US chefs, had a great time. Also near by is the Eucalyptus restaurant - native Israeli food with an emphasis on local herbs, produce, and historical recipes, dined there with the same group another excellent choice. Have adrink on the back porch of the King David Hotel with a great view of the old city.

      Yes, I've been to Eucalyptus. Very nice. I like the idea of local plants used in the dishes.

      1. in general - any place for ethiopian or bukharan food?
        and any restaurants with traditional dishes like unlaid eggs?

        and last does jerusalem have places like in tel aviv where you can get grilled foie gras?
