A contemporary Jerusalem Cusine

The 02 Restaurant is a contemporary chef restaurant specializing in the cuisine of Jerusalem. Located in the Inbal hotel, between Jerusalem’s German Colony and Talbiye neighborhoods, chef Nimrod Norman’s kosher meat restaurant reflects Jerusalem’s unique charm as well as the kitchens of the Levant, which make the city into a desired culinary destination. With a large terrace overlooking the Liberty Bell Park and Montefiore Windmill, the 02 Restaurant’s elegant design, warm atmosphere, attentive service, and seasonal menu create a successful blend of a French bistro, a NYC steakhouse, and a local working-class restaurant. The result is a delightful and delicious eating experience, which caters to a diverse range of palates.

Our Chef

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.”
