Update - I ended up going to Leonardo for Shabbos Lunch. Trying to reserve a meal was a nightmare (not answering calls, differing information). They wouldn't do a reservation over the phone, made me come in person to reserve and pay. 280 shekels per meal.

The actual meal itself was really great though. Good mix of quality food and plentiful. Buffet with no lines (place was maybe 1/3 full). You have to pay extra for soda (which they charge to the room if you're staying there) but were nice and ended up giving to us for free.

Would go again.
Leonardo plaza?
This was lunch or dinner?
Same price for kids and adults?
Do they provide wine for kiddush?
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.

Yes, Leonardo Plaza
Shabbos Lunch
We were all adults (over 16), not sure if there's a cheaper price for kids
Not certain about the wine as I only had Grape Juice.

No, but everything under generally accepted hashgochas will be.

I'm wondering about restaurants that are Rabbanut Mehadrin. My understanding is that it varies from place to place.

How do you define lechumrah? Many different levels, both of policy standards and oversight/enforcement standards. (Bnei Brak standard adherents don't even hold that the Eidah Hachareidis is sufficiently machmir regarding shemittah as it pertains to Yibul Nachri and certain regions, and there are therefore those that will buy Rubin and Landau certified food but not Eidah. Just an example of how ranging the definitions of lechumrah are.)

In J'lem, rabanut mehadrin and mehuderet are all shmita l'chumra AFAIK.

I have no understanding of hechsheirim in EY. I asked someone from Yerushalaim who I respect and trust, and who knows my standards, and was told that I can rely on all heimish hechsheirim (bedatz, eida, rav landau, Rubin, and Shearis) as well as Rabbanut Mehadrin if it's Shemitah Lechumrah.

Sounds right, now ask about machpud, rabanut mehadrin outside of J'lem, J'lem rabanut mehuderet, hotel rabanut that claims to only use mehadrin, badatz b"y, CSBB, CSPT, etc when they claim to be shmita lchumra ;D

Would be great to have a breakoff thread for the constant hechsher discussions and allow this one to just focus on restaurants.

Anyone eaten at Cholent and Mood? (yiddish style food)
