Noy is well situated in the center of Jerusalem (just a stone's throw from the light rail train), it is nicely designed and the food is good, but not great. The service was very pleasant, but the food came out too fast making one feel that you were "eating", not dining.
The first thing to arrive at the table were "on the house" antipasti (beets, eggplant, peppers and olives) along with a large, hot focaccia. The idea is nice, the antipasti were fine, but nothing memorable.All the dishes needed salt- and this is a problem with all the food.
My daughter and I shared an "eggplant terrine" which was not a terrine at all, but a baked eggplant with tehina on the side. Though very fresh, there is not more to be said about it except that it was definitely NOT a terrine, it needed salt and more character.
For the main course my daughter had seared red tuna steak with a number of sweet potato slices. The tuna was done to medium-well and she said it was fine.
I had an unusual dish: an entrecote steak filled with chopped lamb.the lamb filling was very good, but the entrecote was over done and therefore hard. Ut came with a good grilled zucchini, white rice and sweet potato slices. The meat severely lacked salt.
We shared a dessert of non-dairy vanilla ice cream (this is a strictly kosher restaurant that doesn't mix meat and milk) topped with silan (date honey),thin pieces of halva and roasted walnuts. It was quite good.
The bill for all of this came to 340 shekels which at today's exchange rate works out to about $85 for two, without wine or any soft drinks, no coffee.
Not cheap, and not sure I would return at that price.
