How is it possible that a city with that much tourism now has no good restaurants?
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.

The resturants are all far from the tourists and has a tiny local community to support.

HaCarmel is edible and at least closer. They talked about closing but seem to be sticking around... For what it's worth, HBaron was empty when I was there.

Is the Wiki updated with kosher restaurants?

Also has anyone stayed at the Pulitzer?

Important note: It seems there is a lot of talk on this thread about Dutch Gin, also known as Jenever / Genever. Just want the oilam to know that Jenever has a malt wine base (from my research malt wine sometimes has a wine base) which for the most part makes it completely NOT kosher. @boruch @jj1000 please feel free to weigh in.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

With a quick Google at least that one is kosher with no certification needed.
