London for Shabbos

I read this string with interest, as I just posted this question, but I am a tourist and would love to stay central and go to the museum on shabbos afternoon. You say that there are many hotels within walking distance of the Marble arch synagogue ( is that what it is called?) could you give me an idea or link to locate them. I had originally thought I would stay in Knightsbridge, as that is such a lovely area, but I gather no shul within walking distance, so we planned to switch to hendon on shabbos. Are there nice hotels ( 4 or 5 star) near hyde park?

Best kosher places to eat in London

My husband and I are going to London for the first time this summer. Would love to know where to go for fabulous food. Also hoping someone could help me figure out where to stay for shabbat. Would it be best to change hotels and go to Hendon for Shabbos, or should I stay in a downtown area within walking distance to a shul? Thanks for any help you can give me.

Shabbat dinner on the east side of manhattan?

I can do that walk, the rest a little far for us old folks... This is a special birthday week end away, we are staying in the Affinia on 65th. Thought we would daven at Park East, but would love to go out to a restaurant for Friday night dinner... Sure do miss Park East Grill. It was expensive but a nice treat for prepaid shabbos meals.

Shabbos in Rome

This will be my families first time in Rome, and we will be there over Shabbos. Does anyone have any recommendations for hotels within walking distance of the shul and how to get kosher food on Shabbos. Are there any restaurants open for Friday night dinner?

Thanks for your help!

Thankyou for commenting on a positive experience in a hotel for passover. I would appreciate any other feedback from anyone who has stayed in the tri state area for pesach and had a positive experience, re: food, sedurim, atmosphere and we are looking for a modern crowd if possible.

Passover vacations in New York/NJ/Conn?

Can anyone recommend a hotel in the tri state area that they were particularly happy with for Passover? Lasko tours at the Woodcliff Lake Hilton?

Main Event or Prestige

I used main event for two weddings my husband and I made two summers ago. The food was wonderful, the presentation was creative and owners very accomodating to work with. I have been to weddings where prestige was the caterer, and I personally felt that the food was not as good, and the presentation was not as creative, but as this is a very personal decision, I suggest that you taste both caterers food before deciding.
