Without sounding too over the top, Le Marais is simply one of the best kosher steakhouses in the country. Celebrating their 10th anniversary this year, Le Marais, which is named for a Jewish neighborhood in Paris, has been attracting dates, business people, tourists and theatre goers alike. Ask them what they think about this brasserie and their responses will almost always include words like “outstanding” and “amazing.” The reason why their fare, especially their steaks are world renowned is because they buy their meat straight from the master butcher who then cuts it for them. This allows their customers to get the finest quality cuts and through their aging process, they are certainly on par with any non-kosher steakhouse. Owner Jose Meirelles, sheds some light on how this came to be. “When we opened the restaurant 10 years ago, there was a lack of kosher restaurants that knew how to properly age their meats. We offered the Jewish customer something that they never had before.

” In a turn-of-the-century French style wooden decor, the restaurant offers their guests a casual yet classy atmosphere. For your convenience, this “rare steakhouse, well done” offers private meetings and parties in their upstairs dining room. With his rustic cooking, Long Island-born, Executive Chef, Mark Hennessey brings his C.I.A. training and years of kosher restaurant experience to Le Marais. What most people come for, Mark says, are the La Surprise”- their butcher's cut and “Tournedos Le Marais” with bearnaise sauce. Creative daily lunch and dinner specials are commonly found on the menu, so be sure to visit often. The restaurant also boasts one of the largest international wine lists of any kosher restaurant, including many special bourbons, whiskeys, single malt and scotch selections. As you can see, this is not your grandfather’s kosher restaurant.
Clubhouse Café to Lose its Lease and Closing THIS THURSDAY; Reopening Once New Space is Located
It is with sadness that we announce that The Clubhouse Café must relocate from its current location on West 46th Street. The current site will be closing by May 24th.
The building it occupies and the adjacent properties have been purchased for a Times Square renovation development project beginning later this year. As a result, our lease has been terminated leaving us with little recourse, but to close immediately and try to find a new home.
Closing our doors is not something we planned for, but we will rebuild and reopen as soon as possible. We have wonderful fans and appreciate the support our clients have given us over these past four years. We know that our menu selections have become favorites, if not staples to some.
With that in mind, we are enhancing our menu at our sister restaurant Le Marais at 150 West 46th Street to include a wider burger menu, with selections we believe our clients will relish. We expect to have a new location shortly for Clubhouse to reopen quickly. Thank you.
Elana Aptowitzer- 07/07/10 Absolutely memorable! My husband and I (and two friends) had an amazing meal at Le Marais. Everything, from the atmosphere to the table setting to the food was perfect. The wagyu beef burgers were fantastic, as was the duck confit on frisee salad. The house red wine was delish, but the coffee was horrendous (but who cares? you're not there for the coffee anyway!). This restaurant is fancy without being pretentious. And while it is pricey, it's definitely worth it! The food is great. portions are fair and you will not forget your visit soon!
Truly one of the few kosher restaurants that don't seem kosher when you enter. There's a mixed crowd and they did a wonderful job of hiding the washing sink, benchers, etc. I loved feeling like I was just eating in a regular, beautiful restaurant, rather than eating in the local kosher joint.

RHumphrey- 06/15/09 For anyone with peanut or nut allergies, please be aware that Le Marais uses peanut oil for anything fried in the restaurant, and that many of the dishes contain nuts. Your best bet is to speak with the manager and find out exactly what is ok to eat on the menu and what isn't. I had the prime rib with mashed potatoes and the side salad, and I was fine. Also be wary of the desserts.

Deena Greenbaum- 05/21/09 Atmosphere was great as was the dining experience. The food was superb, and there was no loud music to disturb conversation. I would give this restaurant a 5 out of 5 rating.

T Fusion Steakhouse
Joey- 02/20/08 I am a big fan of beef jerky. The only place I know that serves it is Le Marais. By any chance do you do too????
Alan Broner- 08/29/07 The best bang for the buck in Manhattan kosher cuisine. Their Steak au poivre is to die for, and the fries are the best in the world. Noisy, busy, a perfect Manhattan bistro. Even the desserts are good.
