On the far western fringe of Jerusalem, nestled among the dramatically forested and terraced Judean Hills, lies Ein Kerem, a former Arab village and purported birthplace of John the Baptist. Ein Kerem's pastoral location has made it both a thriving artists' colony and one of Jerusalem's most desirable and expensive neighborhoods. To serve both the upper-crust residents and visitors, multiple upscale restaurants and cafes have sprouted among the village's ancient churches and shrines.
