Chef Barak invites you to a meal that pays honor to the oil that he has created
Did you ever think that a staple like olive oil could surprise you? If not, think again! Chef Itzik Barak has created premium, one-of-a-kind olive oil for the prestigious Palace restaurant. The oil, sure to excite your senses, was produced from Syrian olives in Meshek Achiya olive press. This thrilling ingredient has the flavor of ripe tomatoes with hints of black pepper, which give it a gentle pungency and light spiciness.
Especially for the OpenRestaurants™ festival, Chef Barak invites you to a meal that pays honor to the oil that he has created – four courses that emphasize, complement and celebrate the flavors of his distinct olive oil.

About the Location
Built on the grounds of the former luxury Palace Hotel, which in turn, was built in the late 1920, the new Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem Hotel was designed by Sinan Kafadar, an expert in renovating historic buildings and turning them into urban masterpieces. The façade of the historic building was the only original part kept standing, everything else was razed and rebuilt. A new wing and six more floors were added, giving the hotel 230 rooms as compared to the original 140, and a glass-covered plaza was constructed in the interior courtyard. The hotel houses two kosher Haute Cuisine restaurants, one with a dairy menu and the other serving meat.
