The Best of Kosher Restaurants

What do you think when the word kosher comes to mind? Maybe nothing but a restriction. And while it’s true that to be a certified kosher, an eatery must abide by certain binding rules, for instance, no shellfish and pork; dairy products and meat do not belong in the same kitchen. And most often, it implies that you’d be deprived of one or the other.


But this is New York City we’re talking about. And in New York City, the Jewish deli is alive and thriving, now more than ever. There are so many kosher restaurants in this city that are so good. There’s a very big chance that you’d never guess whether you’re missing something or not.


There are Jewish restaurants and cafes opening up in hip and trendy places, all over New York City, lending themselves flawlessly to the rules. Now you don’t have to catch the next bus from NYC to Ithaca or Philly to get your kosher fix. And with so many options serving the very best of kosher food, that it’ll be hard for you to decide where to nosh.
