Took a day off to visit Jerusalem's markets with a couple of friends. For lunch we went to 1868, because we wondered how the restaurant got it's name.
Well, the location is an old house, dated back to 1868. The house has got a lot of character, very unique, and beautifully renovated. The restaurant has a few small rooms connected by beautiful arches. The lunch menu has 4 starters and 4 main courses to choose from. We had the skirt steak with onions, beef fillet tartar. Continued with Arborio Risotto in spinach cream and asparagus. My choice was the Steamed Atlantic Salmon with potato instead of cauliflower [which I can't stand]. The organic Chicken on soy and ginger sauce, was nice as well. The desert was 3 samples of mini chocolate cake, 1 ball of sorbet ice cream, and 1 mini eclair.. Overall it was just nice, the restaurant and the garden are very special.
