    When Tishrei comes and guidance is issued to the guests, I guess you will get the clear picture.
    I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

    Izzy's Taqueria reviews?

    Pho-Men, Artisinal Bakehouse and Mozzarella are all a better bang for your buck IMHO. As a foodie you have to try Alenby if you haven't yet.

    Alenbi was fun. I would do chef tasting next time. They need 2 days advanced notice though

    I don’t think there are many options... Mozzarella quality has gone down since the last ownership change (or two?). Calabria is RIP. Maybe Koshertown cafe, though their menu is limited.

    Good point, though ime their food is inconsistent (though it was never “bad” IME, just not consistent).

    Never been there. But of the places I've been, Kingston Kosher felafel is by far the best.
    No clue how they get enough business to stay afloat, though.
