Harry, Hi....

Consider the possibility of dining at the Italian restaurant at the Leonardo Plaza Hotel (formerly Sheraton Hotel). The food is quite good and is glatt le mehadrin. But I do not know the pricing, my guess is moderate (that is to say about NIS 100-120 per person not including wine).

I will second Daniel's recommendation of the Primavera restaurant at the Plaza, which has improved over the past few months in my opinion.

If you want a meat restaurant, the kashrus at Keyara at the Windmill in Ramban Street in Rechaviya is very good, and the food is also quite good, but maybe not as good as some of the best you will know from New York! We have found that the starters are all excellent - look for the crispy gnocchi, liver with sweet onion sauce, and the Moroccan soup, but the others are also good.

Sorry I went to Keyara at the Windmill for dinner and it STANK! Sorry, did not like the food at all. We tried a few dishes and none of them were enjoyable...

I'm with David on this one. I tried Keyara with high expectations and was pretty disappointed. It was actually that experience that led me to thinking (having never experienced non-kosher fine dining) that, with such vast qualitative differences between glatt and "regular" kosher food, how much more so it must be between kosher and non-kosher...
