Zuni, the brasserie that opened recently in Nahalat Shiva, offers an eclectic menu inspired by French, Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. Anat and Dan Kirsch, the owners of Zuni, chose the location for their informal eatery after walking through the city's picturesque alleys. Named after Zuni, the ancient Indian tribe whose people managed to maintain their traditional lifestyle throughout the years, this modern-style brasserie attempts to appeal to people from all walks of life. The dining area is very spacious and the decor recalls a classic French brasserie, with warm-hued high ceilings, huge mirrors and old chandeliers. Offering a range of interesting dishes at reasonable prices, Zuni joins the hip and trendy restaurants downtown. This is the kind of restaurant everyone wants in their neighborhood, and I'll venture to gamble that this new brasserie will soon become one of the bastions of the Rehavia, Talbiyeh and Baka bourgeoisie. The menu is compiled of a variety of breakfasts, a lunch menu and some light dishes for night owls. A few dishes worth noting: an avocado, onion and roasted pepper bruschetta (NIS 27); homemade grilled sausages with cabbage cooked in beer (NIS 59) and chicken liver tortellini (NIS 59). For desserts, go with the classic cr me brulee or hot chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and berry sauce. Zuni. 15 Yoel Moshe Salomon. Tel: 625-7776 (not kosher) ofer@jpost.com
