one of 10 best restaurant in jerusalem -2015-2016. Cuisine offers a contemporary, creative and a personal statement. The restaurant's design, its location in the Israel Museum, the Cross Valley scenery and views of the Knesset, Jerusalem ambience unique. 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. The varied menu, extensive selection of wines, the service attentive, courteous and professional, are a recipe unique character of MODERN. Scroll up Scroll down
