At Jerusalem Restaurant, cooks take a thoughtful approach to Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine. "The kitchen works with a light touch—a must when it comes to such hearty fare as braised lamb shanks and lamb makluba," wrote a contributor for Washingtonian, which featured the spot as a "Cheap Eats" pick in 2012 and 2013. That light touch carries through to dishes such as Moroccan carrot salad, vegetarian kabobs, and shawarma sandwiches served on fresh, pillowy pita bread. Jerusalem Restaurant also pours a selection of fruit juices and sweetens meals with Lebanese confections such as sweet baklava, creamy om ali, and phyllo dough replicas of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
