Dear Mr. Chuchem,

Thank you very much for your e-mail.

Subsequent to that story, the OU reviewed all of its foodservice establishments by a senior representative from NY. The point referenced to in the article suggesting a dairy alcoholic beverage possibly served at a meat restaurant in the end turned out not to be accurate.

The OU hashgacha at Papagaio is very much in order. The restaurant has an OU mashgiach temidi and in addition, is visited by another supervising OU Rov periodically. The restaurant has a good history with meeting OU requirements.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate.

Wishing you a gmar tov. 

Best regards,

Rabbi David Bistricer

Any ideas on restaurants walking distance to Sheraton hotel & towers in Tel Aviv?
Also any recommendations on things to do nearby? The wife & I will be there for 1 day next week.

I'm not sure if its walking distance, but I'm a big fan of Alter Nativ.  They have a great prix fixe special I think before 6pm.  Also they have a 10% coupon on eluna.  Don't miss the Creme Brulee or the ben and jerry's milkshakes.

Keyara is really good and nice another place with a nice sized party room and cheaper with great food as well would be RYU on emek! A great nice relaxed ambiance dairy place I would say is bait ticho it's really good and don't think many people know about it so it's usually quiet and motsai shabbat they have live music nothin crazy just a keyboard and sax! Very relaxing and nice outdoor garden patio
RYU is the best flaishig restaurant we've been to in IL. http://ryu.rest-e.co.il/ It's Rabbanut Mehadrin Yerushalayim. It has decent prices, isn't too packed. Make sure you sit in the back if you want a romantic atmosphere. get a 10% off coupon here. Print it out and bring it with you.

for meat i recommend kiara and for milk apple and pear. just remember to print out a 10% coupon from eluna.com.
in teveria there is one mehadrin restaurant on the kineret (forgot the name) and also a pizza shop right nearby as well as great falafel in the felafel stands.

Cafe C in Teverya, Alter-Nativ in TA, Cafe Rimon (milk and meat) in J'lem were some of my favorites.
Look on Eluna for coupons.

I assume he means Keyara, which is by the windmill on Rechov Ramban right by King George/Keren Hayesod. As I've mentioned before, I think that Sheyan (located upstairs of Keyara) is a great place too...
