Shabbat meals in Jerusalem

Maxinella Nov 11, 2011 12:46 PM

We'll be renting an apartment in Jerusalem in December, but because we're arriving so close to Shabbat ,we won't be able to buy and prepare food when we get there. I understand that we can pre-pay for Shabbat meals at a hotel in Jerusalem, and I'm looking for recommendations. We are vegetarians, but other than that, we're adventurous eaters. Our apartment is located on King George Street, between Agrippas and Ben Yahuda. I believe the area is called Zikhron Yosef. We don't mind walking for good food, but we'd like to keep it under 20 minutes, if possible.

        Your best bet is the new Mamilla Hotel:


        The rooftop restaurant is nice. It's a bit of a walk, but shouldn't be too bad. The old Sheraton hotel is closer to you, but I have never been there.

      We were staying at The King David when we were there and kosher meals were available on Shabbat - the food choices were limited though and basically cold.

        The Leonardo is much closer to you. It's on King George across from the Great Synagogue.
