    nice. An address and opening date would be good to include on their current landing page. Also, which hashgocha are they planning?

    They are already open for a soft opening but in general a website for such a restaurant is not necessary i think

    -1

    Every restaurant should have a website with hours, contact details (can call in a to-go order, or if any questions), a menu (preferably with prices) and Hashgocha info (if Kosher).
