FWIW I was at Salt, Charq, WSG, Lamppost, and Tabernacle recently
I'm trying to figure out if the appropriate joke to respond with should center around a financial advisor or a nutritionist  :P

I don't know, but whenever I see Salt and Tabernacle in the same sentence, I think of "על כל קרבנך תקריב מלח"

FWIW I was at Salt, Charq, WSG, Lamppost, and Tabernacle recently, and lowest to highest -  LP, Charq, Salt, WSG, Tabernacle. I pretty much order the same assortment everywhere, +- an appetizer. Salt, WSG, and Tabernacle were over 20% higher.
And how do you rank the food/ambiance at each?
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.

see the food + the pricing before you purchase
food should be good not commercial
price should not be hyped up because they have a sit in area
GG north has prices coming soon for the longest time

I'm not sure if I understand what you are seeking, but GG south is pretty solid from my experiences.

Ate at Hamisada Tuesday night, the food was quite good, fresh warm pitas and really good chummus and steak. Reminds me of Olympic Pita. Who opened it?

is it waiter service with a 18% tip? or more like u pick up the food by the counter? what can u compare it to (ambiance and service wise) in lakewood

thanks

You order and pay by the counter then a waiter brings the food to your table, sort of like Caffoteria as far as ambiance/service. No tip.

Hamisada makes excellent food, has fair prices and is a great mid-range establishment. Service needs to get much better but I donít judge this early.

My kids really enjoyed cafe noir in Florida last year. Is there anything milchig on the upscale side with nice ambiance in Lakewood? Caffoteria and Ottimo donít really have that feel.
