Jerusalem's Restaurant

1518 Nicollet Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55403 | Minneapolis (Downtown) | 612-871-8883

Location Description:

Ever since camels got humps Jerusalem's has been winning local 'Best Middle Eastern Restaurant' awards--or at least, it seems that way. Why? The awkwardly charming tented room, which always feels like it's just been whipped together for a party just for you. The inexpensive, simple foods perfect both for a quiet vegetarian date (with wine or beer!), or for a super-filling mixed plate of lamb specialties. It's not terrifically fancy or aggressively cutting edge, but that's probably why it's first in so many hearts: Jerusalem's just sits near downtown, year after year, under its funny onion dome, quietly radiating the homey vibe of a place where you can slip off your Birkenstocks and discuss politics, culture, or which came first, the camel or the hump.
