Miami Beach Pre-Paid Shabbat Meals - update

m

Hello all,
My husband and I are going to Miami Beach next month (staying at the Eden Roc on Collins). Last time we were there we went to Tower 41 for their pre-paid shabbos meals but when we called they said they were no longer doing it. They said they thought Prime was doing it but the only Prime nearby I could find was a dairy sushi place. Know of any other restaurants in that area that do pre-paid shabbos meals? Thanks so much for your help!!

    They might have meant Prime Grill, but it closed a while ago.

      Tower 41 has a new caterer that is starting soon. I would think that when they start they will do Shabbos meals. When you are you going ?

          We'll be going over Thanksgiving. Do you know the name of the new Tower 41 caterer. I'll try there and Rare. Thanks for the advise.

            The caterer's name is Greenwald. Pls let me know what you find out as I want to make reservations for Yeshiva week. TIA

        I'm not sure if they still have it - but China Kikar Tel Aviv in the Carriage Club North Condo (5005 Collins) had pre-paid meals for years. Its pricey but the meals were very good when I went there years ago.

          I called and China Kikar Tel Aviv still has pre-paid shabbos meals. They said it was $55/person/meal or $100/person for both meals. We left a message for the Tower 41 caterer and I'll let you all know when we hear back. Thanks for your help.

            Do you have a contact number for them? I have a number that is not working. Would like to order Shabbos meals and possibly rent a condo for the week. Do you know if that's possible?

              The contact number for Tower 41's restaurant,now catered by Greenwald ,is called Kosher on the Bay. The phone number is 305.535-4101. The price has gone up ridiculously. The meals are now $60 per pp per meal,Friday night or Shabbos lunch. ,35 for kids. The menu sounds nice, they wouldn't commit to an exact menu, but said that last week there was stuffed cabbage or gefilte fish to start,chicken soup with matzo ball and noodles, choice of meat,chicken or flanken, choice of apple strudel or another cake(I forget what the woman said)Lunch is salads,hot dishes carving station etc. In terms of renting a condo, you need to look at the Jewish Press or some other publication. I don't know if you can do it through the bldg.

                Thanks. What about the Carriage Club restaurant and apts. This is for my mom and I don't want her to have to walk too far. Does the Eden Roc have kosher meals?

                  We tried calling 41 on the Bay (the new Tower 41 place) numerous times but no one ever got back to us. Rare Steakhouse indicated that beginning November 27 they will begin doing Friday night meals only. They are charging $65 for Friday night which seems way more than others. Eden Roc doesn't do any kosher meals (only during Pesach do they have meals as I understand it). The place at Carriage Club is called China Kikar Tel Aviv. Each individual meal is $55 or if you get both shabbos meals it is $100 a person.

                    Heading to Miami Beach next week and staying at the Fontainebleau. Anyone have any recent updates about Friday Night Kosher Meal options in Miami Beach and walking distance to the hotel?

                        Europa Grill in the Days Inn should be doing Shabbos meals ,from what I know.

                              I think that Rare Steakhouse ,now in Tower 41,is doing them. I believe that they may be very expensive. Europa Grill in Days Inn should be reopening soon and doing them. Please let me know what more you know. Thanks.

              Anyone have more updated information since the last posting? We're hopefully going to Miami Beach for Shabbos next week. Asi's is booked and Kikar Tel-Aviva said that we need to call the Wednesday before to ensure that they will be open that week (need a minimum). Rare quoted me something pretty high. Is C.U. Cafe in the Mimosa still around? Haven't heard back yet from anyone there. Europa Grill number at Days Inn is out of service. Ae they still around?

              Any other suggestions?

              Thanks.

                Europa was really pretty bad last year. I would not be shocked if they are closed. They may not be open yet for the winter season. Rare in tower 41 is expensive,but good, from what I hear.

                  I did hear back from Europa. They're open for the season 11/1. Difference in price between Rare and Kikar Tel Aviv is pretty significant so I'm leaning towards the latter.

                    big difference bet Rare and Kikar Tel Aviv is location. It depends on where you are staying.

                  The JCC at 4221 Pine Tree has a pretty great Friday Night dinner. The options are extensive and everything was delicious. Will definitely come back on another visit.

                      Seemingly endless. They had the standards, matzah ball soup, gefilte fish, salads and sides, sushi, prime rib carved to order, paninis, a lot of hot dishes, sweet and sour chicken, pierogis. A large sweet table with all kinds of cut fruit and pastries.
