Jerusalem restaurants tends to group in small areas according to type and clientele, which can make restaurant-browsing in the Holy City that much easier. Shlomtzion Hamalka is lined with dimly lit bar/restaurants for the young professional set; Emek Refaim features an abundance of upscale kosher eateries catering to a largely English-speaking crowd; and the area between Rivlin Street and Shlomtzion Hamalka fairly overflows with small, elegant gourmet chef restaurants.
Katy's fits into the last category, the baby of Moroccan-Jewish founder Katy Ohana. The small and well-appointed French bistro is awash in white tablecloths and features a white piano by the door. It was rumored to be the favorite restaurant of late Jerusalem mayor Teddy Kollek.
Katy's specialty is traditional French fare, but like most restaurateurs in Israel, Ohana dresses up some of her dishes in the local flavors of the Middle East. The menu is variable, but reliable offerings include the brioches, goose liver pate and duck in currant dressing. Reservations are recommended, as the restaurant has limited space.
