the city, they wanted a place for themselves, so they transformed Amelia, named
after the legendary pilot Amelia Earhart, into an American-style
With a new and extended bar, small private booths and a new chef,
Amelia offers everything from breakfast specials – including French toast, egg
dishes and baked goods – to business lunches and great dinner menu with
excellent meat dishes and fresh pasta and salads.
We tried their
entrecote burger, which was very generous, served on an elongated plate with
home fries and spinach, onions and salad (NIS 59); a very tasty savory upside
down tart with zucchini and red peppers, olive tapenade and grilled goat cheese
(NIS 32); and a couple of the salads.
The quinoa and beet salad (NIS 44)
was different and filling, and the cider coleslaw (NIS 32) was a welcome change
from the standard slaw.
From the dessert selection, we chose the Kadaif
with vanilla ice cream and toffee cream (NIS 32), which was not too sweet and
very satisfying.The writer was a guest of the restaurant.Amelia,
