north-central Restaurants in Jerusalem

North-central Jerusalem has a wide selection of restaurants for every taste. Whether you want to sample cuisine of Morocco, France or Israeli home cooking, all can be found within the central core of Jerusalem. First stop is the visually exciting Darna--an enchanting Moroccan restaurant serving fragrant couscous and lamb; delectable desserts accompanied by endless Moroccan sweet mint tea while you recline on luxurious satin cushions. Not too far away, on the upper level of the Mamilla Mall is Spaghettis, where it's the pasta selection that will keep you busy. On the restaurant row, Ben Shetach Street, Gabriel is the place of choice for an elegant gourmet French meat or fish meal--served outside if the weather is good. Great people-watching is an added bonus here. Fourth on the list is Angelica on Schatz Street, where you're likely to spot a politician or two enjoying the off-the-beaten track ambiance of this fine grill and bistro. For Middle eastern-style home cooking in the central part of town, try Ima's (Mother's) where the specialty is flavorful kubbeh--a type of filled semolina dumpling served in a variety of tasty soups. A good neighborhood bistro in central Jerusalem is Maalot on Maalot Street. Wonderful stews and hearty soups make up the menu in this intimate space. All of the restaurants we've listed in this Top 10 are kosher.
