I had the honor to eat at modren last tuesday, while celebrating with my husband are 32'nd anniversary.
We arrived at 18:00 ,which turned out to be a perfect timing. - the lights were dim, beautiful french music was playing and the staff were all set to host us.
After a short consult with the sweet waitress we decided to share a jerusalem tapas plater for an appetizer; and take a slamon stake and mix grill for the main cours.
oh and what an excellent choice was that!
The tapas was colorfull and full of life; the salmon was perfectly baked and the mix griill was a real israeli treat. Even though we were so full we decided not to skip dessret and orderd the jerusalem samolina cake which i get hungry just talking about! absolutely delish!!
So hurry and have a perfect night out at this Jerusalem beauty.

We had an excellent mezze lunch. Good bread. 1 platter is sufficient to share. Fresh salad. Good hummus. Falafel crispy ! A good place to recover after the endless museum. Pity it is closed on saturdays.

The restaurant resides within the Israel Museum which is of course very convenient for visitors. I took the business lunch - the meal was a bit pricey for the quality of food, the food was fine, no more (wasn't bad though) everything was fresh and of good quality but the preparation was dry and somewhat uninspired, the service was unprofessional but kind and helpful, the atmosphere was very nice and casual though a bit noisy (acoustics...) I wouldn't recommend coming especially, but for a hearty meal in the middle of a day at the museum it's a good choice.
