For many Jewish people, adhering to true kosher dietary laws is still a very important of their lives. Many New York restaurants recognize this, and there are several that are considered true kosher restaurants. Whether you are observing traditional Jewish dietary laws, or just like Jewish food, you can't go wrong if you choose one of the ones listed here. You can make it a point to try a different one each time you go out to eat, so that you can extend your enjoyment of true kosher food.
This restaurant is open for lunch, dinner, and brunch. You can also order food for Shabbat and Sheva Brachot meals. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Sheva Brachot, the phrase means "seven blessings". These seven blessings are pronounced at traditional Jewish weddings. After the initial wedding ceremony, feasting continues for seven days, usually at different homes. This, of course, means you'll need lots of food, so why not let Talia's Steak House make it easier for you?
You're always welcome to come into 2nd Avenue Deli for a pastrami sandwich (probably the best one in all of New York). If you're in Manhattan, it's very convenient for you to do so. If you can't make it in person, that's OK, too; you can still order your favorite Jewish delicacy, as well as some 2nd Avenue Deli apparel. Wear your pride for your favorite true kosher restaurant for all to see.
The first thing you'll notice about this true kosher eatery is the fact that you can sit in a place that will allow you to view the open kitchen. This is what awaits you on the first level, and there's even more. The second level opens so that you can view the sushi bar and lounge that are located there. Don't worry, though, all the food served on both levels is prepared in keeping with true kosher dietary laws.
Fine and Schapiro offers Eastern European Jewish cuisine that is prepared in the traditional kosher manner but served in modern surroundings. This restaurant is also a good place for celebrity spotting, as many of them (Jewish and non-Jewish alike) prefer this restaurant. Again, if you do see a celebrity, please respect his privacy and personal space. This restaurant also features menus for Rosh Hashanah and Passover as well as Mother's Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Super Bowl Sunday. You can enjoy kosher food no matter what the occasion.
When you open the menu at Noi due Café, the first thing you'll notice is the abundance of Italian food. That's probably when you'll realize you're in an Italian restaurant, and if you came looking for a kosher restaurant, you may wonder if you need to make a discreet exit. No, you don't. The Italian dishes are all cooked under the strict supervision of a Jewish rabbi to ensure that all kosher dietary laws are adhered to. So, if you love Italian food but were afraid you couldn't indulge because of your kosher lifestyle, now you can.
