MODERN dishes based on old Jerusalem cuisine that evolved outside the walls. Warm flavors of longing for distant lands. Chef episode and reassembled the recipes and created a modern kitchen with local flavors. Great ingredients, according to the season. Menu Business Lunch - noon Sunday-Thursday, MODERN offers business meals include appetizer and main course, the price of the first tranche. Him, and allow special buy wine. Average age - 30 at the wine - beef carpaccio, green pepper grinding Jerusalem market, lamb kebab bulgur salad. Children - like schnitzel and pasta in a tomato. But will try the great food. Drink Home - a wide variety of wine, a collection of special wines and wineries of rare, depending on the preference of the audience and the prices vary. Beer, champagne and alcohol. Happy hour - soon refreshed - MODERN restaurant menus change, renewable and refreshed frequently depending on the season and what's available in the market. In addition, ask about special today.
