We drove last night to Yerushalayim to meet with friends for dinner last night, and decided to meet at Burgers Bar on Yaffo - near the Midrachov. We ended up at Cafe Hillel next door, but I was truly surprised at just how few people were out enjoying a really lovely Thursday night.
I was expecting the normal crowds - normally you have to fight your way into Burgers Bar to order your food and wait for a table to clear. Last night - plenty of empty tables. So come to Israel and buy dinner. The restaurants, and the Holy City miss you.
