Little Jerusalem- The Ticho House
Anna Ticho and Avraham Albert Ticho are a larger-than-life couple in the history of Jerusalem. Anna was a painter and her still-lifes and depictions of Jerusalem launched the beginning of the modern era for Israeli art. Avraham Albert was one of the very first modern medical practitioners in pre-State Palestine and he was famed for treating Jerusalemites irrespective of their background.
The Tichos arrived in Palestine in 1912 and moved into a former Arab manor in the center of the city and converted the house into an eye clinic. Avraham Albert would treat Jerusalemites as Anna would host countless dignitaries and paint. The Ticho house was converted into a museum with an attached dairy restaurant- Little Jerusalem.
The restaurant is a family-operated business and is simply an oasis in the center of the craziness of Jerusalem. Little Jerusalem's architecture and rural gardens take visitors back a century.
Little Jerusalem offers indoor and outdoor seating and the extensive menu has both Middle Eastern and European influences. Breakfast combinations, soups, salads, stir fries, omelettes, quiches, baked potatoes, sandwiches, pasta, fish, a children's menu and a senior's menu are some of the offerings. The desserts are known for being out-of-this-world.
Regular music performances fill the courtyard of Little Jerusalem with special nights for Arabic, jazz and Jewish soul music.
