A contemporary Jerusalem Cusine
The 02 Restaurant is a contemporary chef restaurant specializing in the cuisine of Jerusalem.
Chef Nimrod Norman
In the 02 Restaurant, chef Nimrod Norman approaches Jerusalem’s contemporary cuisine from a personal angle, offering a harmonious balance between inspired chef creations and playful street food. With a fusion of traditional and modern influences, Norman’s cooking reflects different milestones in his personal and professional journey, drawing inspiration from his environment and the kitchens that have shaped it. “To me, cooking is a craft. I enjoy delving into the culinary traditions of the communities around me, the kitchens which have provided the very foundation for my food – the Armenian, Sephardic, Kurdish and Arabic traditions, in addition to Jerusalem’s workers’ restaurants and steakhouses. To me, this is the definition of Israeli cuisine.”

A Local Kitchen
A Kosher Seasonal Menu
Our menu changes several times a year according to the market's seasonal offering, providing a broad interpretation to the local cuisine.

Our wine and liquor menu showcases Israeli producers, with an all-local beverage selection. The 02 Restaurant pays tribute to the excellent wineries of the Judean region, as well as to the contemporary Israeli wine industry with its wide variety of winemaking styles. On our bar’s shelves, seven varieties of local gin offer a sip of Israel’s essence: pink lady apple gin, citron gin from the Golan Heights, botanic gin from the Western Galilee and Jerusalem gin, rich in aromas of almond, pine and olive trees. A meticulously curated selection of Israeli vermouth, whiskey, arak, vodka and schnapps is also available.
