Eating Out – In Style

A few weeks ago I mentioned that there are some very upscale restaurants on a quiet street just off the beaten path, but never got around to writing about the street.

I happened to stop by the other day, just before the holiday began and took some pictures of this street as they started to get ready for the Sukkot holiday.

Located just off of the main hangout streets, Shimon Ben-Shetach Street used to be best known as the location of one of the main Bituach Leumi (Social Security) branch offices. But recently this street was transformed into a low (car) traffic street and more of a pedestrian walk.

A number of upscale (Glatt Kosher) restaurants opened there. I haven’t had the chance to try them out yet, but they look good from the outside. So if you have a chance, get there during Sukkot. It gives new meaning to “eating out – in style”.

Also on this street is an antique store, that for some reason, has the telephone number of Carl Marx in the window, and a synagogue for Iranian expats.
