NileGuide Expert Says:
Great Jerusalem atmosphere in the courtyard.
NileGuide Expert tip:
The courtyard can be easy to miss. Look for the entrance at 31 Jaffa Road.
This busy, recently-turned-kosher restaurant, with a few extra tables set outside in summer, is famous for its terrific and elegant lunch specials offered Sunday to Thursday until 5:30pm and until 3pm on Friday. It's also famous for its meats -- at lunch you can get a two-course lunch special that includes the best chunk of sirloin in town, cooked as you want it, served with your choice of wonderful sauces; an excellent goulash; or flavorful lamb kabobs or chicken, all served with a choice of French sauces, rice or potato, and vegetable. The lunch choices also include pasta and fresh fish. At night (when it's not good for kids), there's a large a la carte menu with prices that triple the lunch special rates, and many special dishes not offered at lunch. Goose-filled dates; gooseliver in Calvados; and veal brains in lemon parsley sauce are among the rich samplings. For vegetarians, there are good pastas. Lunchtime service is very speedy (which kids like), so you don't have to plan for a long repast if your time is short.
