A very popular place (especially on Shabbat) filled with travelers, families, and young Jerusalemites, Focaccia Bar serves pizzas and focaccias baked in a traditional brick taboon oven. But there’s much more on the menu, ranging from heaping stir-fried salads laced with chicken or goose breast to excellent calamari or seafood pasta in a spicy Indian-style coconut sauce. The setting is a 19th-century Jerusalem stone cottage with a large dining garden (covered and heated in winter). Good wines and desserts round out the menu. Reservations are useful here, especially for Shabbat. Tip: In 2013, a kosher version of Focaccia Bar with an inventive menu opened in the German Colony at 35 Emek Refaim St. ([tel] 02/538-7132). It offers a similar menu but is closed for Shabbat.
