How is it possible that a city with that much tourism now has no good restaurants?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

The resturants are all far from the tourists and has a tiny local community to support.

HaCarmel is edible and at least closer. They talked about closing but seem to be sticking around... For what it's worth, HBaron was empty when I was there.

Is the Wiki updated with kosher restaurants?

Also has anyone stayed at the Pulitzer?
