Milt's Food Truck Coming Soon to a Curb Near YouMilt's Food Truck
Stephen Kreisler, general manager of the restaurant, says the plan is to launch the truck in the first week of August. When it's on the streets, expect the Milt's truck to mostly serve a selection of sandwiches from the Kosher restaurant's menu, including brisket, pulled chicken, burgers and hot dogs. Also expect appetizers including a wings (smoked or Buffalo) and sides. Look for it around the city and north suburbs on Sundays through Thursdays, and possibly for Friday lunches.

Mike's Bistro in NYC Moving Out Next Week, Opening up on East Side Next Month

Mike's Bistro
Mike's Bistro, one of Manhattan's most popular meat restaurant, will serve its last dinner service at its current location on the Upper West Side on June 18th. We broke the story 7 months ago that plans were underway to move to 127 East 54th Street (between Lexington and Park Ave), and we have now confirmed they are moving to the East Side next month. The new 180 seat establishment will be twice the size of the original location, and will feature 5 private rooms and 25 seat bar. 

Shalom Chai Pizza on Lower East Side is NOT CLOSED...for nowShalom Chai Pizza

From The Lo-Down: "Despite numerous reports to the contrary, the kosher pizzeria at 357 Grand St. remains in operation. A legal battle over its forced departure continues in court [today], as the landlord attempts to collect back rent and reclaim the space. Between serving up slices and dispensing sodas to a bustling lunch crowd, Shalom Chai owner David Tgar told us a little while ago that he intends to continue business as usual until July 31, the date he negotiated with landlord Seward Park Co-op as part of a legal settlement earlier this year. "It's all rumors-that we're closed," Tgar said, in reference to reports in various media outlets decrying the demise of the Lower East Side's last full-service kosher restaurant. A marshal's notice of impending eviction, posted on the door of the restaurant on Friday, May 23, prompted declarations that the restaurant had already served its last pizza-speculation that escalated all the way into a New York Times piece [yesterday]. But Shalom Chai reopened as usual after the May 24 break for Sabbath, and has continued normal operations since. "I'm going to stay as long as it is possible," Tgar said this afternoon.

ANOTHER Kosher Food Truck Has Entered the NYC Market (making it 5 in total)

Latest Food Truck

Continuing in the popularity of the non-kosher trend, this past year has seen a surge of kosher food trucks in Manhattan. While some are located in one spot, some move around from day to day, so the best is to follow them on FB or Twitter.

Moishe's Falafel - 46th Street and 6th Avenue

TaimMobile - Usually in the Flat Iron District - 20th & 5th Avenue from 11am-3pm - Under OKS

Grill on Wheels- 46th & 6th/ 47th & Park/ Financial District (Hanover & Water)- Under R. Mehlman

Schnitizi - 46th & 6th / Occasionally in the Financial District (Water & Old Slip) - Under R. Gornish

* Recently- The Sandwich Factory- 52nd & 6th - Under Kof-K (Click here for CBS2 article on them)

And not only that, the Brooklyn Navy Yard contacted us last week to see if we can get a kosher food truck to appear in their line of food truck vendors.  More details to follow.

We reported several months ago that the famous but non-kosher Luzzo's in the East Village is opening their first kosher location at 261 Madison Avenue (between 38th and 39th Street, near Grand Central Terminal), called "Pizza Al Volo."

Taco Flame Opens in Los Angeles
Taco Flame has opened at 5450 West Pico Boulevard (off Hauser Blvd). reports that "This classic Mexican restaurant, with a menu seemingly similar to the East Coast's Carlos & Gabby's, should not be confused with the wildly popular Mexikosher in the neighborhood. Some menu items include a "flame party plate" of quesadillas, sopes, nachos, taquitos, & guacamoles; multiple flavors of burgers and burritos, fajitas, tacos, and the usual soups and salads. They even have a Kids Menu to compliment their Fun Zone with a slide and ball pit, Wii, Kinect, and air hockey!" And Mazal Tov to the new YTK baby!
