  • When pastry chef Oren Gahanian arrived in Cleveland from Israel in 1998, he had more up his sleeve than chopping and dicing vegetables in somebody else's restaurant. His goal was to share the recipes of the Middle East. So he opened Jerusalem Grill in May. "I wanted to open a kosher restaurant with Mediterranean and Israeli-type food," said Gahanian. "People who eat kosher are limited on what they can get in Cleveland. We are trying to make things that people can get at our place that can't get anywhere else." The Shawarma Platter ($8.99) comes with well-seasoned shawarma meat— a mixture of turkey, lamb and chicken. The wonderful blend of herbs include freshly ground turmeric and cumin. A variety of green and cabbage salads are on the side. All come neatly packaged separately for the ride home.
