Fodor's Expert Review Majda

$$$ Beit Shemesh Middle Eastern

A Jewish--Arab couple offers fresh food made using ingredients straight from their garden at this eatery in a picturesque location a few miles west of Jerusalem. Yakub Barhum built the outdoor deck and pergola overhead, and Michal Baranes, the chef, dreamed up the menu of changing dishes. The fig salad is a celebration of the summer's juicy abundance, and the Layali Beirut dessert is a semolina cake with cream and rosewater.
