A bad Elf, a rebel rooster and an intrusive photographer--wow!--quite the names for eating establishments. How's the food? MB

I'm back. :)
Hope you and Trillian are well.

Last night I saw a Paparazzi restaurant in Jerusalem! Next to another Spaghettim restaurant. Many Italian-sounding eating places in the vicinity of the Italian Jewish Museum.
