 BIG TRAVEL FLORIDA NEWS: 

Kosher Meals Coming to Fort-Lauderdale Airport in just over a week!
Kosher food at Ft. Lauderdale Airport
So Jetblue is not the only reason you may want to fly in and out of Fort Lauderdale International Airport when traveling to South Florida? It has just been reported that the airport will offer grab and go kosher meals in Terminal 3 (where Jetblue operates) starting on September 24, the last day of Chol Hamoed Succos. 

The salads, sandwiches and baked good are marketed under the label of Miami Chef Allen Susser. Hollywood-based Kosher Central Market will source, prepare and certify the meals that will be delivered to Susser's airport concession. The packaged food will bear the Orthodox Rabbinic Board of Broward and Palm Beach counties seal.

TORONTO & CHICAGO RESTAURANT REVIEW:
0 COMMENTS
So as many of you know, I had back-to-back trips to Toronto and Chicago these last 2 weeks and while they are 7 hours apart, they share some similarities when it comes to their restaurants.
 
Let's start off with Toronto and some of my observations.  A few years ago, the city had a nice amount of casual to fine dining establishments, with Gladstone's, King Solomon's Table, Miami Grill and Marky's. Sadly, all of them closed.  It may have had to do with the economy and recession or that there aren't enough kosher diners to support that many waiter service restaurants (probably a combination of both), but it seemed the dairy places were the ones that were dominating. Fast forward, a couple of years and while many of the dairy restaurants are around, there has been an influx of new sit-down meat restaurants that have made Toronto a town that should not be embarrassed by their restaurants.  
 
First, I have to mention the two fine dining restaurants that have have weathered the storm and continue to produce fantastic fare in a white table cloth environment.  Yes, there are only 2 fancy restaurants in Toronto and they happen to be a few buildings away from each other on Eglinton Avenue.  I had the opportunity to dine at Bistro Grande (dairy) and Marron Bistro (meat) and they were both terrific, especially Marron - the food was inventive, full of flavor and it was truly a wonderful experience. You can see photos of the dishes and commentary by clicking on their links.  Meanwhile, in terms of restaurants that have come on the scene in the last couple of years, Thornhill (a Jewish suburb of Toronto) has seen a steady flow of new restaurants from Ba-Li Laffa to Dr. Laffa (who knew Toronto was the capital of laffa?) to Ashkenaz Cowboy (the coolest and tastiest Southern comfort food north of the border - they even got me to wear a cowboy hatYou have new places like Burgy's Goldburger and Hummus Hummus which has expanded and is opening up soon.
 Again, this is all just in Thornhill.  Further south on Bathurst, you have the new Pantry Restaurant, a creative, eclectic dairy restaurant and also the new Ben & Izzy's, the only deli restaurant in the area.  Rounding out the scene, you have all the others that have been around for awhile that are putting out really good quality fare, like Umami SushiDairy TreatsMilk n Honey and Chicken Nest, where I had the best Half Rack BBQ Beef Ribs I've ever had.  But one thing I was still shocked to see is that Toronto still does not have a full fledged Chinese restaurant. You have a take out place here and there but not your classic green wall/brown carpet/Chinese waiter kind of restaurant. But all in all, it was a great trip to our Canadian neighbors.
 
After a weekend pit stop at home, including my daughter's birthday party and a friend's wedding, I jumped back on the plane to Chicago.  Now, let me get to the major similarity Toronto and Chicago have in common. EVERYONE IS IN BED BY 9PM! While I'm kind of joking, it really is interesting to see that the streets of Chicago and the kosher restaurants are almost empty at around 9:30pm. They simply don't have the amount of kosher diners and the young dining crowd that stay out late.  However, there are some exceptions and I saw that when visiting the new, hot eatery, Milt's BBQ for the Perplexed (featured last week in the Travel section of 
The NY Times).  After I managed to get to a Chicago Cubs game, I walked to Milt's (they're a 10 minute walk from Wrigley field) and when I got there at 9:30, the place was still buzzing with people. Oh, and dinner was really good and I have the photos to prove it.  But while Chicago doesn't have a fraction of the number of restaurants in New York, I've had people tell me that they think Shallots in Chicago can stand up to any NY restaurant. I might have to agree.  And I would have to also agree that your best bang for your buck is still Hy Life Bistro, where the food and service is always good and the prices are reasonable. And believe it or not, Slice of Life, their sister restaurant in the same building is the only dairy waiter service restaurant in all of Chicago. Speaking of the only-kind-of-something, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Chicago finally has a full service, sushi restaurant.  
Hamachi Sushi Bar might not look big, but it can seat many diners comfortably and they turn out some amazing and creative rolls, that again, can rival any kosher sushi restaurant in NY. And then of course, Ken's Diner is still there (and they just added mini TVs to all their booths), you have the ever consistent Israeli restaurant in Taboun Grill, and the quick, classic, counter service pizzeria in EJ's
 
Bottom line on both places: Appreciate what you have and support your local restaurants, since there are other towns that can barely keep 1 or 2 nice restaurants around - talking to you Cleveland and Detroit :)

behind Publix at Concorde Plaza 
(best entrance is from NE 29th Avenue and NE 190th Street), this large Asian restaurant just had their grand opening last week which features a diverse menu with tapas and entree selections from the grill, wok, sushi, fish and much more.  At this unique space, there's a massive outdoor patio with big screens, which is ideal to watch a game. They are open for dinner only from Sunday to Thursday from 5pm-1am and on Sat. night  after Shabbos until 1am. They have happy hours from Monday - Thursday from 5pm-7pm and 12am-1am where you can enjoy a signature cocktail from their bar. They are under the supervision of Kosher Miami. We will surely check it out next week on my trip to South Florida. Thanks to Dani Klein from YTK for the heads up.

 

 

Orlando, FL 
Details are just coming out of a new kosher restaurant, called Voka in the Worldgate Resort Hotel under culinary trained Chef Nano. The hotel used to house Cohen's Deli, which closed a couple of months ago, but I've been in contact with the hotel and they just opened up this new upscale restaurant last week. Luckily for my family and I, we are staying at the hotel in a couple of weeks, so we will be able to see it first hand.  Stay tuned to our Facebook page for all the details.
SPOTLIGHT ON S. CALIFORNIA

Welcome to California!

A Hotbed of Kosher Restaurants

 

While I have traveled to many kosher restaurants in cities throughout the world, I believe Los Angeles is the one city where you will find the most consecutive restaurants on one long avenue.  There are over 40 kosher restaurants in less than a mile on West Pico Blvd, in what should be the new Restaurant Row.  With absolutely no exaggeration necessary, I can tell you that I went up and down Pico over 50 times during my 5 days there. And the variety of restaurants on this strip is fantastic.  From American to Thai to Chinese to Persian to Italian to French to Israeli to Asian (not to mention all the burger, schnitzel and sushi joints) it is quite marvelous.

 

And of course, not every restaurant can be on Pico. There another dozen or so restaurants scattered around the LA area and dozens more in the valley. Although, one thing that did surprise me was that there haven't really been any new restaurants openings for a quite a while. The restaurant life is a cycle, and while there have been just a few closings, not many people are opening here either. But here is some breaking news: The dairy restaurant Twenty Six, will be turning meat in a month or so and the owners have plans to open a dairy restaurant just a block over in the near future.

 

But it seems the Doheny Kosher Market scandal has hit some of the restaurants hard, with some even switching supervisions and others contemplating it.  I was surprised that the store's name is still in large letters. I would have thought the community would not have wanted to be reminded every time they drove by.  In a weird kind of way, I almost think it's becoming a photo opp for a tourist to show his/her friends back home, that this is the market that...at least I think that, since I took a picture of it myself.

 

Anyway, I had a great time visiting and dining at all the restaurants, schmoozing with the owners and hearing how they are doing.  Like all kosher restaurants around the country, it's not easy, there are daily struggles and issues, but they are trying hard. So if you currently live in the L.A. vicinity or will be visiting soon, be sure to check out our Southern California section on our website here for photos, menus and all the details. The discount certificates for the So. Cal restaurants are available, so check our California Deals Section.

Let us know what you think about the L.A. restaurant scene.
