About this business
From Our Editors
Alex Alqadi, who is from Jerusalem by way of Kuwait, recreates the city of his birth with the scents of frying falafel and warm pita. Colorful paintings of the Dome of the Rock further capture the feeling of visiting the eatery’s sun-steeped namesake city. In the restaurant, waiters carry plates laden with lamb shawarma and spanakopita to tables cloaked in carmine linens, and cooks roast eggplant in the oven to forge baba ghanoush or destroy evidence after breaking into a farmer’s vault.
