When I went last year Succoth they had a huge selection of products for takeout
I was also there around that time, the quality and presentation of the food didn't exactly appeal to me

Make sure you check out the hechsher. Heard rumors, so make sure it's okay

I've heard good things about it, both the food and location.
But don't schlepp up there just for that.

Went to Ricotta in Har Chofzim. Excellent food. Very friendly staff. Soups were good (I had the bean - you have to like spicey), my granddaughter the sweet potato and loved it. They even let her try it first. Didn't have too varied a dinner between the three of us, but what we did have was very good. Some kind of spaghetti dish, two different gnochis, one with multiple cheeses and sweet potatoe, one was Alfredo. Didn't do desert, too full. Bill was 223 shekel and they tagged on the 18% tip. We sat there a very long time and no one bothered us. I guess if it was packed they would have given us a hint. Nice ambience as well.

The exact address is Har Hotzvim, Science Park 3. I don't know if this helps but it's across the street from Entrecote. Be careful. Upstairs is a fleishig place, they are downstairs.

batchys house.
I was never able to get reservations. Tougher then Tierra Sur in LA. Make reservations at least a month in advance.
You have to be friends with the chef ;)
I'm not sure it's appropriate for you to be friends with the chef. Moishe may not appreciate that.
How can I do that? I bought him some presents a while ago from Amazon back to Israel so I think we are friends.
Its a personal joke... :) but he happens to make a great bbq
So I hear.. Who wants to push him to come Sunday?

ROTFLMAO!!! You guys are too cute. ;D ;D ;D

Correct. I have done it before. Called Sevivas Shearim- hundreds of ppl leave from Kosel plaza and dance/walk through the Arab areas and all other parts of old city. Boys and girls are separate. Very powerful event. Dont know exactly what night they do it but its always around rosh chodesh time... some chabad guy is in charge
