Not sure how far your willing to walk but the GRA shul on k'kl is probably a 10-20m walk.
I know its a minyan factory on shabbos,i assume during the week as well.
Can almost make it to kotel already:)

Fyi, Great Synagogue has shachris at 8 and is about a 7 minute walk so that was closest option.

I'm reffering to more of a takeout/resteraunt place. I'm staying by the Waldorf, but due to the Hechsher I am looking for another option for eating. Hotels that you aren't a guest by can charge a small fortune and when you are traveling with 8 people it adds up.
Every Rabbi I asked said the food there is good (kosher-wise)

Can you name a rabbi (or two) ?

(Not that I'm arguing, just want a good source)

Has anyone who stayed there recently know how much the shabbos meals cost pp? Do they charge for kids?
The official price is 455 shekel per adult and children are free.

Don't know rabbi zaretzky but I believe rabbi Baum said it's good but for me that's a reason not to eat there....
