James Snyder, the Executive Director of the Israel Museum, made sure that every aspect of the newly-renovated Israel Museum would be first rate.

He also demanded this of the various cafes and restaurants in the museum's campus.

Modern restaurant lies in the museum entrance. Friendly service, fair prices, even a pretty good selection of Israeli wines grace the back wall.

A super lunch menu with very competitive prices is also available.

One drawback, it's closed on the sabbath and Jewish holidays.

Must take a lunch break here. I had falafel with 'Modern' bread. My husband had a roast chicken sandwich. Both very good.

Modern is right inside the entrance pavilion at the Israel Museum.
Clean, comfortable with a varied business menu and good service, you really can't go wrong.
The restaurant is kosher, but the coffee (with soya milk) was just as good as the real thing.

Several times we had lunch at the Modern before or after a visit to the Museum.
They have a nice buissnes lunch menu, a soup or salad goes with the main dish.
It is clean and very confortable setting.
The service is good. If you are a museum member you get a discount.
