It needs to have amazing food (very into his meats), nice ambiance and open late (alcohol is a must.. but I suppose that shouldn't be a problem)
Is Israel? Good luck :D
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Also side note, what is the best dairy place to match above criteria? (need great desserts - cheesecakes and the like)

Thanks

Have never tried their food, but Ben-Ami have great desserts.

Do ppl who "care and know" about hechseirim in Israel generally eat "bedatz beis Yosef"?

Didn't we start a hechsher thread with these discussions so we could keep this thread clean from them?

Looking for the absolute best restaurants in Jerusalem..  For someones 50th bday, doesn't normally keep kosher, and is used to high standard.

It needs to have amazing food (very into his meats), nice ambiance and open late (alcohol is a must.. but I suppose that shouldn't be a problem)

What are the options?? (needs to be mehadrin hechsher that lubavitchers can eat - not lubavitch shchita though)

Also side note, what is the best dairy place to match above criteria? (need great desserts - cheesecakes and the like)

Thanks

Gabriel is the best choice around for meat. Though it is Badatz Beis Yosef so ask your LOR for his opinion. IMO it is reliable. Also their restaurant supervision is considered very good by yechiel spira who has visited dozens and dozens of them over the years. If anyone wants to respond to the kashrus info do that in the hechsherim thread please.

As far as dairy, visit Lucianas, for a delicious and classy place. Or Greg for delicious and relaxed place.
Live forever or die trying.

Gabriel and noya are about same caliber,
Papag's is IMO not such a "nice ambiance ",

The new red heifer is very nice and grey meat too- and very good hechsher!

And there's always Keyara - for those big fans

IF you book the VIP room in Papagaio you can get the good meat + "nice ambiance"
it CAN be done!

Pricey!
As i wrote earlier- The appetizer was a decently priced (like 60 shek I think) and very good! (Jalapino chicken fingers)
My wife's main course- chicken breast stuffed with sweet potato was also very good- and decently priced (like 80) - and came with a side..
My steak- which was also good  - but was 150 shek an didn't include side.. Just can get one for 18 instead of the reg 25 (or so)
