if you want to get to all of them - like over 30 of them there is book / sefer on it - might be in Hebrew. Take Waze or GPS with you.
Do you know the name of this book?  TIA

I hate to beat a dead horse, but if it's a steak you are looking for, 100% of the time the one in Skyline is better that LB, imho

As far as desserts, I didn't like either

Not looking to argue with you, just to let people know there are many who feel otherwise.

I disagree on both statements. Lehem Basar steak is always amazing & their desserts are as well.

Agree on the steak. Not a big dessert guy, and don't remember.
I was in Skyline once or twice, and the steak was not something I would go back for
