Restaurant Openings & Updates (9/24/15)

RESTAURANT OPENINGS & UPDATES:
  
MANHATTAN
The Roast is a new Kosher Homestyle Chicken Restaurant in East Harlem offering home style cuisine and warm hospitality. They have announced that they're looking to have a grand opening after Sukkot, so stay tuned. Roast will be serving up classic soul food dishes, like Southern Fried Chicken and French Rotisserie Chicken along with salads, sides and sandwiches. The Roast will be under certification of OU Glatt. Located at 1569 Lexington Avenue (Between 100th and 101st Street)in East Harlem, NY. Click here to see exclusive pictures. 
 
BROOKLYN
So after our Facebook group members convinced the owner a few months ago to re-open his Hibachi restaurant, the sign is up and we can now reveal the address of the soon to be open (after the holidays), "Kasai Hibachi Restaurant & Bar" in Brooklyn. They're located at 2524 Coney Island Avenue, between Avenue V and Neck Road - that area is starting to gain some traction. Stay tuned to our Facebook Page for an exclusive GKRF tasting before they open. 
 
Just a week after the Prime Pizza grand opening, Prime Hospitality Group opened their second Brooklyn venture, just next door! We have been waiting quite a long time for Prime Burger to open. The menu is an eclectic mix of classic and new flavors. Standout items include the Donut Burger with Chocolate-Covered Beef Bacon, a House Cured Charcuterie Board with Strawberry Chorizo, and Handmade Rosemary Potato Chips. Click here to see exclusive photos from the opening. Prime Burger is located at 1202 Avenue J in Brooklyn. 
 
FIVE TOWNS
The sign has been spotted and hungry Five Town-ers won't have to wait much longer for the crave-able burger joint by Chef Mike Gershkowitz of Mike's Bistro and Amsterdam Burger Co. in Manhattan to open. Just a couple more months, but stay tuned to our Foodies Page for opening updates. 
 
 
GREAT NECK
Mumbai Grill, opening early October, will truly be one of a kind as it will be the only Glatt kosher Indian restaurant in the country. Mumbai Grill owners Malik Husain and Andy Perlaza hired the best chefs to create authentic Indian cuisine, even using some spices unavailable in the US and shipped straight from India. The restaurant space is modest in size, with seating for up to 40 diners. To keep up with the demand they expect to offer takeout and delivery. Mumbai Grill will have a bar featuring signature Indian alcoholic drinks that complement the authentic flavors from the kitchen's two Tandoor ovens. Mumbai Grill is located at 178 Middle Neck Rd, next door to Bagel Mentch. h/t www.TheIslandNow.com
 
RIVERDALE
With recently opened restaurants such as Moss Cafe and Kai Fan, Riverdale is starting to become a hot bed of kosher restaurants. And, you will soon be able to add "Riverdale K Grill House" to that list. They are in their "soft opening" phase right now but with football season upon us and a long oak bar with three massive TVs hanging above it, this is perfect timing. Riverdale K is taking over the location of Riverdale Greentree, a non-kosher sports bar that regularly held trivia nights and events for big games. Let's hope they keep up that tradition! The restaurant is located at 5693 Riverdale Ave, Bronx, NY (just doors away from Carlos & Gabbys). 
  
Fresko Express, which was a small outlet in the Chase Building at 19495 Biscayne Blvd, has been sold, and it will now operate as Rococoa Cafe & Bistro and will NOT be kosher certified. However, Rococoa Cafe will carry sealed and ready to eat products prepared by Fresko, which ARE certified by Kosher Miami. The only products sold by Rococoa Cafe that are certified as kosher are the ones prepared and sealed by Fresko, with the KM logo on the packaging. They have 2 locations in Aventura: at 19495 Biscayne Blvd. # 108 and inside the Aventura Mall at 19501 Biscayne Blvd. 
 
The Hoffman's Chocolates location in Hollywood, Florida is reopening and will offer a full selection of Pareve and Dairy chocolates. There will be more than 70 types of O-U certified chocolates and confectionery items. Hoffman's Chocolates are known for their high quality chocolates, candy, ice cream and more. They even have a factory in Greenacres, Florida which is open to the public for tours. The new Hoffman's Chocolates is located in the Park Sheridan Plaza at 3341 Sheridan Street in Hollywood. h/t HollywoodGazette.com 
 
ARIZONA
We originally reported this kosher cafe development in May on our blog and Mozart Cafe at ASU is finally open! Arizona State University now has their own division of Mozart Cafe on campus. The kosher cafe is intended to not only feed the current kosher students but to bring in new ones as well. Mozart Cafe is serving Israeli classics like paninis and salads. Under the supervision of the Greater Phoenix Vaad Hakashruth. 
 
CALIFORNIA
Earlier this month, Amba Grill in Oakland, California closed it's doors for business. New owners will be reopening the establishment in the future, however, it is unclear whether they will be continuing as a kosher restaurant or not. Hopefully the new owners will keep the restaurant kosher as it is the only Glatt Kosher restaurant in the area. h/t JWeekly.com
