Without sounding over the top, Le Marais is simply one of the best kosher steakhouses in the country. Approaching two decades, Le Marais, which is named for a Jewish neighborhood in Paris, has been attracting dates, business people, tourists and theatre goers alike. Earning a very good “22” Zagat ranking, the guide exclaims “the quality meats happens to be kosher...a convenient provider of delicious beef at fair prices.”
Indeed, their cuisine, especially their steaks, are world renowned as they buy their meat straight from a master butcher who supplies them with the best selections. With a specific aging process, their customers are assured of getting the finest quality cuts. They are certainly on par with any non-kosher steakhouse. Owner Jose Meirelles, reflects on the establishment history: “When we opened the restaurant almost 20 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 space for private meetings and parties in their upstairs dining room. Along 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. Le Marais also features one of the largest international wine lists of any kosher restaurant, including many special bourbons, whiskeys, single malt and scotch selections.

Top notch meat restaurant in Manhattan help
Michael- 07/19/05 A few times a year I have a business dinner with friends (gentiles).. We have been to Prime Grill, Abigails, Le Marais... looking for another top notch restaurant...
Reply #1 submitted by: Elan Kornblum, Publisher on 07/19/05 If you're looking for top notch (meaning high end) and you don't mind paying a little more, try Solo, it's the sister restaurant to Prime Grill. They are located in the Sony Building on Madison & 55th. There info and picture is not yet on this website, but it will be soon.
And I guess if you're looking for meat in the Midtown area, I also recommend Haikara Grill (on 63rd between 2nd & 3rd Ave) and if you want to go uptown, you might like Park East Grill on 2nd & 82nd. These are all frequently visited by non-Jews anyway.

Reply #3 submitted by: susan on 07/28/05 Try Levana at 141 W.69th (between Columbus and
Broadway) Each time we dine there it is a pleasure
Foodie- 06/19/05 This was an awful experience, and repeated attempts to contact the restaurant, which heralds its wish for "feedback," availed nothing. Clearly no one cares. The service was abysmal, the salmon appetizer not prepared or presented as described, the fish entree pallid and tasteless, the fries quickly cold, and the martini, at a whopping $15, the most expensive of any comparable kosher restaurant. The steaks were fine, but little consolation. Take a pass on this place and go to Le Marais.
Reply #1 submitted by: Mordy on 08/02/05 I used to be a big fan of Talia's until the last time I went and had a very bad experience. I haven't stepped in there since.
Reply #2 submitted by: Galitte on 08/09/05 We had a reservation and were kept waiting for 30 minutes. They handed us a basket of bread when we went to wash, and we waited quite some time for a glass of water. I won`t be going there even if you paid me to.
Shloime- 03/06/05 Warning Alert!! Once you go to Le Marais, you'll never like any other restaraunts steak. It's dark, loud and cramped but once you start eating you won't care about your surroundings. Tip, try the black pepper steak!!
Moishe Schwartz- 02/01/05 I bought $650 worth of gift certificares for a friend's party at Le Marais and I specifically stipulated that I wanted to take care of their entire bill including the tip. When it came time to pay, the bill came out to about $500 plus about $100 tip. They then refused to accept the gift certificates that I had purchased for that specific purpose for the tip. Long story short if anyone wants $200 in gift certificates to Le Marais I'd sell them for $150 This also goes for any other kosher restaurant just email me at email@example.com
Reply #1 submitted by: Elan Kornblum, Publisher on 02/01/05 Moishe,
Normally the restaurants prefer you pay in cash when it comes to the tip, because that goes towards the waiters.
Reply #2 submitted by: leah on 08/10/08 i know you posted this 3 years ago but do you by any chance have any more le Marais certificates?
Park East Grill
Unsatisfied Customer- 11/23/04 Nice Atmosphere, Nice Waiters....Terrible Food. Ever have 17 out of 20 people at a table complain about their food? Neither did I...til I went to Park East Grill. For a good kosher meal, go to Prime Grill or Le Marais....
