The story of how chef Eyal Vaknin opened Fortuna is that of a fairy tale. After leaving the world of luxurious gourmet restaurants behind, he decided he wanted to open a classic, Israeli grill, which he did, deep in the heart of Jerusalem's market. Fitting to the mood of the ethnic Israeli market and inspired by the local produce, Eyal serves homemade pita and laffa which is accompanied by generous mezze platters. Although the atmosphere remains casual, Eyal brings his gourmet background to Fortuna, which is evident in what is considered the Rolls Royce of grilled skewers and kebabs. This grill house is a definite go-to for traditional Israeli grill for locals and tourists alike.
