I think itís worth a try, but the tight security may prohibit entry into the JCC building with luggage.

Landing at 7pm, any chance of getting to the JCC for the buffet before closing at 9?

btw, it's definitely doable. You take the airport express train that takes about 10 minutes to the city center (admiralylT if I remember correctly the name) then you take a taxi which is around 5 minutes. I would still call them to tell them.

Seems like it's around 24 minutes on the train and 10 minutes by taxi.

Won't have luggage. Either way I'm probably not gonna go to HKI now, thinking about the Hyatt regency near KZ. Who would deliver there?

Try Mul HaYam, open until 10:30 pm for sit down or take out:

You could also daven Maariv in the adjacent Shul, even if you miss the minyan.

Though personally I thought Mul Hayam was overpriced and the portions small. The J restaurants were much better.

I'm barely there for 24 hrs and I'd rather not spend extra time just to get better food. I can get food anywhere.
And assuming it takes 45 minutes to get out of the airport and yet another 45 to get in the door of the JCC that's giving me half hr until closing.
