New Vegan Kosher Restaurant Coming to Brooklyn
0 COMMENTS

So we reported this yesterday in our newsletter, but we heard from the owner of Siena Ristorante, that the location which used to be "Back to Nature" (which they also own and is next door) is under renovation and will now be a vegan restaurant. The restaurant, located at 535 Kings Highway, should be opening up in a few weeks. 

 
This is quite interesting since there are almost no vegan kosher restaurants that are Shomer Shabbos and under orthodox rabbinical supervision. We're not sure if the name will remain, but if it doesn't, it would mean the end of almost 20 years of "Back to Nature" one of the first dairy restaurants that catered to the health conscious crowd.

 RESTAURANT OPENINGS, CLOSINGS & UPDATES:

Why wait for our newsletter? Make sure to follow us on Facebook, so you can get these restaurant updates even faster.
 
 

MANHATTAN
Eden Wok Manhattan not planing on closing Eden Wok NYC

Despite reports from another website that Eden Wok in New York City was closing, we have spoken with ownership who have confirmed that the story of their decision to close was a false report. This is an unfortunate situation where misreporting has actually hurt their business with companies hesitant to book their holiday parties with them and negatively hurting their reputation. We urge that site (despite multiple requests from the owner) to send out a retraction to their readers.
 

We broke this story on our Facebook page a month ago, but over a dozen Dunkin' Donuts in New York City now have select kosher donuts and bagels available under the kosher supervision of Rabbi Aaron Mehlman. The stores themselves are NOT kosher; however, their bakery items are produced at a strictly kosher commissary. A current and laminated certificate (click here) must be displayed before purchasing products. Click here for a listing of the 18 new kosher Dunkin' Donuts throughout downtown, midtown and the East side of Manhattan.

 

Lox Cafe in The Jewish Museum on the UES closes
While their website has them closed for renovations until early 2015, 
we have learned that Lox Cafe on the Upper East Side will no longer be opening.  After U Cafe closed earlier in the year, this leaves the area with very few dairy options.
 
 
5 TOWNSAmsterdam Burger coming to Long Island
Amsterdam Burger Company opening in Cedarhurst
We have known this for some time, but we can finally and officially announce that Amsterdam Burger Co., the popular gourmet burger restaurant owned by Mike Gershkovich and Marty Katz on the Upper West Side, has acquired the Mother Kelly space at 490 Chestnut Street in Cedarhurst (across from LIRR) and will be open by the beginning of 2015.  Stay tuned.
 
 
 
BROOKLYN
Brooklyn on Rye opens on Kings Highway    Brooklyn on Rye
Don't count out the delicatessen just yet. We stopped in to Brooklyn On Rye which recently opened at 543 Kings Highway (off East 4th) as owner Yaron Harazi is bucking the trend of sushi and fusion style restaurants. Yaron has been in the meat and deli business for almost two decades and is excited to be bringing his "Brooklyn on Rye" to the neighborhood. Besides all your deli favorites, they also offer a salad bar, schawarma, schnitzel, burgers and more. Click here for photos.
 
 
Breadsmith coming to Avenue M in NovemberBreadsmith coming to Brooklyn
In what can only be called a bizarro situation, a food establishment is actually REPLACING a bank on Avenue M. 
Breadsmith will be opening at 1817 Avenue M in early November, coincidentally next door to Kaff's Bakery. "Great Kosher Restaurants" spoke to the owner Chaim Lieff and he is very excited about his place and believes this will revolutionize the bread industry, especially kosher, in New York. Breadsmith, founded in 1993, has over 30 independently owned retail bakeries, with this being the first location in New York. Chaim grew in Minnesota, where there is a kosher Breadsmith (there are others kosher ones, including Chicago) but when he moved to New York 5 years ago he felt there was nothing like this here. 
Chaim is quick to point out that this is not a bakery and it will not have birthday cakes. 
Breadsmith specializes in handcrafted artisan breads made fresh from scratch using the highest quality ingredients with no additives or preservatives. They say their dough is never frozen and their breads are baked in six-ton, stone-hearth ovens imported from Europe (the Brooklyn location is getting their oven from Italy). They also make specialty breads and a wide range of challah, cookies, muffins and sweets. Breadsmith has received accolades for their European-style breads including top honors from Bon Appétit magazine, Modern Baking, International Culinary Salon, National Restaurant Association and "Best of" awards throughout the country. On their website, they state they are not just another chain store but a neighborhood store. The website goes on to say that they are "focused on being community-based by taking part in local events and causes on a regular basis. We not only sell an affordable luxury, but we also donate our time and products to those who are in need of it. Each location donates day-old bread to shelters and soup kitchens, as well as generous gift certificates and bread orders to assist local fundraisers." 
 
 
UPDATE: Izzy's Smokehouse has been named and is opening next month
The last time we checked in with Sruli Eidelman of Izzy's BBQ Addiction, he was looking for a name for his not-yet-opened restaurant. Well, he's got that and a new logo.  Sruli tell us he will be up and running for any catering right before Succos and that the official grand opening will probably be right after the holidays. His location will be at 397 Troy Avenue in Crown Heights with seating for about 25-30 people.

GREAT NECK
Turquoise  
goes from non-kosher to Kosher
We love these stories. The long-standing Mediterranean Great Neck fish restaurant, is now kosher and under the Vaad of Queens. Turquoise Kosher Restaurant first opened across the street from the Great Neck LIRR station in 1999. It was purchased in 2010 by Erica Bushkin, who moved the restaurant in 2012 to its current location at 76 Middle Neck Road. In making Turquoise kosher, Bushkin was responding to Great Neck's growing kosher clientele. "The town is becoming more religious," she told Newsday. "You have to change with the times." What hadn't changed, she added, was the kitchen crew. Please note: This establishment is not to be confused with the Turquoise on Union Turnpike in Fresh Meadows.

CALIFORNIA
The Kosher Palate
First as a Food Truck & Market Booth, The Kosher Palate 
now opens Artisanal Sandwich Shop in Redondo Beach
Not to be confused with the cookbook bearing the same name (different spelling), "The Kosher Palate" is The Pacific Coast Highway's first glatt kosher restaurant. Originally just a food truck (opened in 2012), The Kosher Palate opened over this past summer as an artisanal sandwich shop specializing in traditional Jewish cuisine with a twist. About 40 minutes south of Los Angeles (looks like it's worth the drive), TKP features a customized menu with various bread, meat, veggie and condiment options. You can build your own or go for one already on the menu. At TKP the food is seasonally created and locally sourced. The restaurant is Pas and Bishul Yisroel and all meat is Lubavitch Shechita. Meanwhile, the food truck location changes often, so it's best to follow them on Facebook. Click 
here for their food truck menu. They also rotate at different markets, bringing their Kosher fare to many parts of LA. For all the information, click here.

Shop Hours: Sun-Thu 11a-7pm, Fri 10am-2pm, Sat. night 2 hrs. after Shabbos-12:30am

1406  S. Pacific Coast Highway, Redondo Beach (310) 316-4433

Cooked in 90 Seconds PizzaLaurent Masliah is back in LA! The former owner of Cow Jumped over the Moon and La Seine has been busy in New York this past year, opening and running Pizza da Solo, the Neapolitan style pizzeria in the Sony Building owned by Joey Allaham. There Laurent worked with well known chef Giulio Adriani in bringing this very unique pizza to the kosher market. Well, fast forward a year, and Laurent and Giulio have partnered up to open "Cooked in 90 Seconds Pizza" in Los Angeles, which basically tells you how long you will have to wait for your pizza. The pizzeria will offer a very similar menu to Pizza Da Solo, consisting mainly of 10" inch thin crust pizza with fresh homemade mozzarella, cooked in a wood-burning oven at a very high temperature (1000°F).They will be located at 8834 Pico Blvd., next door to MexiKosher. They hope to open soon after the holidays in October.

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.

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.

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

* 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.

New kosher sports bar, called Doghouse (no relation to House of Dog in Florida), is opening next month in Teaneck at 1415 Palisade Avenue, off Englewood Avenue, adding to the already dizzying amount of restaurants within that

The long-delayed megamall project in the Meadowlands sports complex in East Rutherford, NJ was renewed by the Ghermezian family, after signing a union agreement in April, 2014. The Orthodox Jewish family counts among its properties the Mall of America in Minnesota. The good news for the kosher customer here is that an inside source told "Great Kosher Restaurants" that the complex will include a full kosher food court, with several kosher vendors offering upscale and casual fare.  
The $2 billion project featuring a waterpark, Hollywood-themed amusement park, retail and dining is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2016. To see a news video of the project, click here
 
 

Word out of South Florida

After we announced a not-yet-named Smokehouse Restaurant in Surfside a few weeks ago, Restaurateur Extraordinaire Baruch Sandhaus says he will neither confirm or deny the restaurant happenings on Harding Avenue. Hmm. But the restaurant looks like it could be ready in a couple of months. Meanwhile, you can suggest a name by going here. However, Sandhaus has confirmed thatRARE Steakhouse is here to stay at 4101 Pinetree Drive in Tower 41 and that RARE will be rolling out a completely revised menu (more family friendly) in the next few weeks. Also, we got word that his House of Dog in Jacksonville is hoping to open soon after Tisha B'Av (mid August).
