We've given up... all the programs have gone up tremendounsly! Even the lower end programs are asking a minimum of $20k for a family of 6 and that's after a lot of bargaining... One hotel we went to in MB last year, absolutely no frills was $3400 last year and this year they want $4700 for 2... I guess they're getting people because they're not being very flexible even at this late date....

Pizza/Fast Food Midtown NYC

I strongly disagree, their pizza is FANTASTIC! The 4 cheese and truffle are so delicious. They are pretty large portions and 2 slices, actually authentic Italian square slices, are lare and more then enough to satisfy anyone.

Horrible, Horrible, Horrible. Nothing as advertised. No kiddushim, tea room had only tea and coffee mostly, except for some left over cold cuts. Mostly chicken dishes. Absolutely no activities. Had to pay for a bottle of wine. Tracci really cheaped out here. Hotel was also pretty disgusting. Hopefully they won't have this program again!

Kosher Spare ribs at Costco

Had both the ribs and brisket. Ribs were fine, tasty, fatty and succulent. Brisket was pretty bad.

Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf NYC

I agree, was there last night too. Got a tuna sandwich and wife a salad. The tuna, first of all was dark tuna, the cheapest variety, and was horrible. Wife's salad had ice in it, maybe to keep it cold, I don't know. $27 for a bad sandwich, old salad, but the mango drinks were pretty good. I don't think this place will last too long, at least in CA everything is fresh.

Claire's New Haven

Claire's is truly amazing, only issue is that it would never take off in NYC as it is open on Shabbos, albeit owned by non-Jews.

Best kosher places to eat in London

I had a great expereince at Bevis Mark, bit pricey, but the food was fantastic. The steak was like butter and the non-Jewish colleagues, I brought there, said it was the best steaks they ever had. What I've found regarding food from Selfridge's and DD sandwiches is that they're not always fresh, and also they have strange fillings to my liking, e.g. Avacado and egg?

Cheers!

London for Shabbos

Please let me clarify. I've been to London numerous times, so the touring bit is old hat to me. Unfortunately, I'll need to be in my London office on Friday, so no chance to get home to NY before shabbos. Therefore, I just need the most convenient place to stay and eat as I'm really not up to getting takeout or having food delivered.

Thanks!

London for Shabbos

Anyone aware of a restaurant available for Shabbos meals, or a hotel where I can stay that serves Shabbos meals in London or the environs?

Thanks!

Kosher Food at Newark Liberty Airport (EWR)

I do it all the time in Ft. Lauderdale from Sara's. Never a question. Also, definitely Kosher sandwiches are at terminal B.

We went to HLF Chesapeake Bay Maryland. The hotel, grounds, food, service were all amazing. The speakers were great (Rabbi Lamm spoke once), the Tea room was great, Baalei Tefillah wonderful, heard the kids loved the day camp. Weather was beautiful most of the time, so pools were always open. Not a word to complain, as we've been to a few programs, in the past, and none compared to this luxorious program. We'll be there as long as they keep coming back.

What did you end up paying in the end? I know they were advertising 5500 per room, but were making deals.

It's only a grocery store with minimal food. I'm looking for either a restaurant or meal delivery. Is Coffee Bean still kosher?
