This is a wonderful
restaurant on the magnificent grounds of the former Ticho residence. The
restaurant is on Harav Kook street, a small street just off Hanivi'im street.
This is a secluded area not far from the center of downtown Jerusalem. Click here to view a map
of the area. As you walk down
Harav Kook street toward the restaurant you will pass Rav Kook's former home.
This too is now a museum, and makes an interesting place to visit.
The Ticho house,
the site of this restaurant, was originally built in the second half of the
19th century by an Arab dignitary. This magnificent home was last occupied
by Dr Albert Ticho and his artist wife Anna, who bequeathed the house and
all of its collections to the people of Jerusalem as a public center for
art. The collections are on view every day from 10:00am till 5:00pm, and
till 10:00pm on Tuesday. Friday the exhibit closes at 2:00pm. The restaurant management
came to this establishment after managing the King David Hotel and other
well known hotels. This experience is evident in this well run restaurant.
The Little Jerusalem
restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating year-round. The outdoor seating
in the garden will give you an opportunity to enjoy the clear Jerusalem air. This is an especially
nice place to visit on Succot. There is plenty of room in either of the two
