According to the Chabbad Rabbi there are no other eateries
When did you receive this info? I was there a few months ago for a conference and heard from multiple people that looked into it that the new fleishig place opened by the owners of Bubbie's is a reliable store. I didn't personally eat there so I can't speak to it, but these are the reports I heard.

I just called bubbies to ask about the restaurant next door. Apparently there was a electrical fire in the building and they are closed. (At least that’s what the recording says)

It happened on Jan 2. They said that they will be closed for the day. No idea what the status is now

Interesting. I'm surprised that the Chabbad Rabbi didn't tell me anything

Went for 1 night. Used spg points for the sheraton. Price was right but terrible hotel. Needs major room renovations and weren’t very accommodating. Parking was also a disaster. Have to pay either for valet parking or slightly cheaper for self park across the lot. (I was able to get Free parking cuz the lift gate was broken though). AC is quiet for another week or two. Beach and boardwalk were nice. Went for lunch to bubbies bistro. Had falafel and pizza. Very very good. Went home. The end!
