  Theres also a few takeout place- the Kosher Treat, Eli's Kitchen. I've also heard that eli's kitchen is opening a milchigs restaurant and bakery in oct. so that might be open in time for you also/

Based on the incredible pictures you posted, I'm wondering if it was ever kosher  ;)

So, seriously, it's just Mul Ayam and Armani Kaf these days? + Caterers?
