A newer entry into Jerusalem's rapidly-growing gourmet dining/specialty chef restaurant scene, a culinary revolution that has robbed snooty Tel Avivians of their long-standing right to scoff at Jerusalem's provincialism, Terra specializes in the kind of Middle East-inflected French/Italian fusion cuisine that Jerusalem's trendy young professionals and in-the-know tourists just can't get enough of.
Chef Udi Meiri, a disciple of French cuisine who learned his craft in Paris and cut his teeth in Jerusalem at established gourmet restaurants Oceanos and Chakra, has built his own temple to Mediterranean fusion in a venerable stone-floored-and-walled Arab house on Ben Shetach Street.
