The last full-service kosher restaurant on the Lower East Side is facing eviction, according to, a website that chronicles the rapidly changing downtown quarter, once the home of millions of Jewish immigrants.

An eviction notice has been posted at Noah’s Ark Deli, at 399 Grand St., reported thelodownny, which had earlier received a tip that staff had been told to apply for unemployment insurance.

No one answered The Jewish Week's call to the restaurant Tuesday evening during dinnertime, and a recording said that no messages could be left.

Of course, the LES still boasts kosher-style restaurants, like Katz’s Deli. Yonah Schimmel Knish Bakery is under kosher supervision but offers a more limited menu. Noah’s Ark, according to its website, was under the supervision of the Star-K.; @thesimplechild

"Kosher" in this case is obviously used as a substitute for Jewish food restaurant. Though Kosher style would be technically incorrect it a term in common usage.

and what exactly is kosher style. either a restaurant is kosher or not. katzs is not nor does it claim to be. secondly this story is old news as the restaurant has not re-opened since rosh hasahnah about am month and half ago. bad storyline "Last Full-Service, Kosher Restaurant On Lower East Side Closing"
