Fodor's Expert Review HaChazer

$$$$ German Colony and Baka Israeli

In a former train station, this spacious eatery's dark-wood tables and white cloth napkins might be unremarkable, but the interesting menu, with its welcome departure from the standard Jerusalem dishes, more than makes up for it. The chef takes meat eating seriously, adding Mediterranean, South American, and Asian touches to the menu. There's a fine selection of house stews—including some made with beef cheeks—and a selection of juicy steaks. Specialties include beef carpaccio in truffle aioli, broiled sweetbreads served on eggplant cream, and grilled fish. The desserts change according to season and are definitely worthwhile.
