Jerusalem Restaurants



Chakra Review

Despite being known as one of the city's best restaurants, Chakra still pretends to anonymity: its name is nowhere in sight. It draws a lively thirtysomething crowd of hip Jerusalemites that appreciate the sophisticated decor and tasty fare from the open kitchen. Tables are arranged around the striking semicircular bar. The patio, perfect for fine-weather dining, enjoys a park view. Daily specials enhance the expansive menu, and some good starters include beef or red-tuna carpaccio, grilled eggplant with pine nuts or shrimp with sea salt; ask for bread and baba ghanoush dip. Try the lamb osso buco or the gray mullet, which comes grilled to perfection on a slice of black slate. Share a dessert of ice cream in a tahini-and-date sauce.
