Mods please add Mea Shearim Kosher Restaurant to the wiki. This place is the absolute best sushi I have tasted. Big menu with a ton of options for Chinese as well

I was there 2 weeks ago and ate at Alef Alef. The Shabbos meals came out to $35 a person and were very good. They have Friday night dinner and Shabbos lunch. It is Heimeshe food. There is a Shul next door as well as the Mizrachi Shul a few blocks away. You need to bring passports to get into the Shul’s. I stayed a the Intercontinental which was about 20 minutes away and a very easy walk.

Yes, they have Shabbos meals that you need to reserve and pay for ahead of time.
