The Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem blends historical reverence with modern luxury. Its location in the heart of Jerusalem offers a perfect gateway to the ancient city. The hotel's architecture and interior design are a nod to both the city's historic past and its present-day sophistication.

Located on the fourth floor, The Terrace is an outdoor haven of lush greenery. Open only during the summer, it offers a respite from the busy city. As I was staying in one of the Terrace Rooms, the convenience of this dining experience was unparalleled.

 

The atmosphere at The Terrace is magical, particularly at sunset when the views of Jerusalem are spectacular. The fairy lights in the greenery add to the enchanting environment as it gets darker, enhancing the experience. The spacious arrangement of tables and sofas amidst the greenery and potted plants creates a sense of privacy and exclusivity.

 

The evening began with a cocktail, a crucial part of any fine dining experience. The Terrace's collaboration with Thinkers Distillery, a local distillery known for its environmentally conscious liquors, was evident in the innovative cocktail menu. I chose a gin and tonic.

Other notable cocktails on the menu included the "Jerusalem of Gold" - a signature cocktail served in a dramatic cloud of smoke, enhancing its flavor profile. The "Blackberry Mule" and "Ginger Fever", both are crafted with Thinkers Vodka, and the "Mediterranean G&T" with Thinkers Jerusalem Dry Gin. Each cocktail seemed to tell a story of local ingredients and craftsmanship.

 

Moving on to the food, the menu is curated by Executive Chef Itzik Mizrahi Barak. I started with the "Crispy Lettuce Leaf Salad", a refreshing blend of orange slices, almonds, grapes, and citrus vinaigrette. The "Sea Bream Sashimi" was another standout, presented with bulgur, herbs, and pickled lemon, offering a delightful fusion of textures and flavors.

 

For the main course, the "Grilled Baby Lamb Ribs" are an exquisite choice. The ribs are tender, and the accompanying onion filled with lamb and bulgur adds a flavorful complement.

 

To conclude, the "Chocolate Brownie" was more than just a dessert; it was a celebration of chocolate in various forms and textures. The "Basbousa", a traditional semolina cake with silan and roasted pistachios, provided a sweet end to a delightful meal.

 

The Terrace at the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem uses innovative cooking techniques and offers a serene ambiance. Whether it's for the cocktails, the food, or the outdoor setting, The Terrace is a must-visit for anyone seeking a unique dining experience in Jerusalem.
