About us

Welcome to Al Ha'esh! The Hebrew word for "on the fire," Al Ha'esh means "barbecue" in both the method and grill used for cooking.

With this experience, we will transport you to Israel, a home that holds a special place in our hearts. Whether you're in Jerusalem or Eilat - or live in a kibbutz, city or moshav - having Al Ha'esh is an essential part of Israeli life.

Israeli grills are unique. Meals are prepared in an open kitchen so you can immerse yourself in the party. As you're seated, you're treated to a course of a dozen or so flavorful salads complemented by warm, exceptional tasting pita.

Choose from a variety of sumptuous meats, all brought to sizzling perfection on our wood charcoal mangal prepared with spices imported from Israel. We will offer skewers of chicken or spiced meats; steaks, shawarma, and fish - or try a sampling with our Jerusalem mix.

We'd be honored to have you join our family for an authentic and memorable meal. Come on over and let's do Al Ha'esh!
