Fodor's Expert Review Derech Hagefen
$$ Beit Shemesh Middle Eastern
Just outside Jerusalem, a leafy garden and a wood-burning stove make a rustic setting for delicious takes on new Israeli cooking. Try the Beit Zayit salad with mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, and asparagus. Mullet kebabs are juicy skewers of grilled fish. More traditional eaters can find pizza and pasta. The wine list has a generous range of local and foreign bottles. The restaurant is kosher.
