Jerusalem has a much more sedate aura than Tel Aviv. “They roll up the city at ten p.m.,” jokes the designer, who just finished redoing the capital’s King David Hotel. However, he recommends Mahneyuda (10 Beit Yaacov St.; 972-2/533-3442; dinner for two $130), a little restaurant filled with in-the-know locals, in the Mahane Yehuda market. “It’s an incredible wine bar with these three meshuggener chefs working in an open kitchen all at once, creating spectacular contemporary Israeli dishes like shakshuka [eggs baked in tomato sauce] with foie gras,” Tihany says. “The chefs will pick up pretty girls and dance with them in the middle of dinner. It’s completely different from the rest of Jerusalem.”
