Seeking Schleifer in Jerusalem

harmattan | Jan 27, 2009 07:57 AM

Hello all.

I visited Jerusalem in 2006 and enjoyed a fabulous meal at a place called Schleifer Bar-Restaurant. It was hidden in a little spot on Jaffa Road. The building was the childhood home of the owner, Moshe Schleifer, that he converted into a restaurant. His wife ran the kitchen and prepared a fabulous chef's tasting menu for me. And Moshe kept the wine flowing all night - both into his glass and mine. It was one of those epic Chowhound nights that went on for hours and hours.

A couple of days afterwards, Moshe gave me a tour of the market, as well as to some of his favourite lunch and coffee spots nearby. I had a wonderful time with him.

Sadly, when I returned to Jerusalem in 2007, the restaurant was closed. Does anyone know if Moshe Schleifer reopened his restaurant anywhere else? I will be returning to Jerusalem in February and would love to track Schleifer down.
