Fodor's Expert Review Touro

$$$$ Center City Israeli

On a hillside opposite Jerusalem's Old City, this is one of the best spots to dine when the stone walls reflect the golden sunset. The menu is heavy on meat and draws from Mediterranean influences. For starters, try the leek patties or the earthy bean soup with truffle oil. Ceviche is served with grated tomatoes, a nod to Yemenite kitchens. The standout dish is shpondra, or thin rib, cooked for seven hours. Vegetarians will find grilled artichokes or black risotto with mushrooms. Desserts are tasty, and the extensive wine list features local and foreign bottles. Look around while you dine; Touro is underneath the Jerusalem Press Club and is frequented by prominent local and foreign journalists.
