Fodor's Review

This hot spot is named for the way Israelis pronounce the name of Machaneh Yehuda. On the edge of its namesake market, this restaurant is considered one of the best in Jerusalem, possibly the country. With ample seating at the busy kitchen bar and at the rustic tables scattered throughout the two-level dining room, there's plenty of opportunity to watch the efficiently exuberant chefs slice, dice, and sauté your meal. The menu—composed of fresh, seasonal ingredients—changes

daily, but nearly always includes chamshuka, a fusion of chopped meat and hummus; a dreamily creamy polenta topped with crisp asparagus, mushroom ragout, and shaved Parmesan; and a flavorful bouillabaisse. Reserve at least two weeks in advance.
