George & John restaurant

George & John Restaurant

 The George & John pairs inspiration from modern Israeli cuisine with broader Mediterranean influences. Diners can expect a finely crafted repertoire of distinctively creative dishes, served within historical grandeur at the first restaurant opened outside the walls of Jaffa in 1866. Executive chef Tomer Tal has resurrected the restaurant’s authenticity through his unique cooking techniques, including smoking, grilling, pickling and use of local, indigenous herbs and quality-sourced products. Chef Tomer is a leading young Israeli chef with experience spanning some of the country’s most acclaimed restaurants.
George & John resonates on the story of the Drisco brothers, who acquired a three-story stone house 150 years ago, in a bid to fulfill their dream of opening Le Grand Hotel. In 1870, the first hotel outside the walls of Jerusalem opened to the public, hosting North America’s, England’s and Germany’s most wealthy.
