      Last tie I was in Israel, the number of KP restaurants was coming down. Oh, yes manynofvthem serve matzoh, but they were not koshe for pesach. As a matter of fact, especially in tel aviv and Haifa, the is a gourmet explosion of non-kosher restaurants, traveler beware

      Jerusalem - Luigi, Luciana, and Village Green are usually open for Pesach and non-kitniyot.

        Totally unrelated to the initial question, but it relates to the topic itself: is Pesach in Israel ostensibly 8 days this year because day 8 is Shabbat? Is there a way to eat chametz in Israel on that Shabbat? I understand it is not chag in terms of prayers.

          There is no way to eat chametz on the Shabbat that immediately follows Pesach, because it still belongs to the goy until he can sell it back after Shabbat. And of course on Friday it's still Pesach so one couldn't cook or prepare the chametz even if the goy gave permission. But one may cook kitniyot on Friday for Shabbat (on the grounds that if a Sefardi guest were to suddenly show up on Friday afternoon he could eat it).
