It’s moments like last Friday night at Katz’s Delicatessen that validate my reasons for moving to New York.  

I’ve always been fascinated by American history and one of the things I appreciate most about New York, having moved here almost two years ago from the California Bay Area, is its age. When I came to Katz’s Shabbat dinner to celebrate its 125th anniversary, I couldn’t help but admire the deli’s ability to maintain its old-fashioned charm in the middle of this modern metropolis.

The deli’s enduring legacy comes from its ability to adapt to change while also maintaining its traditions. Each of the four courses at the Friday night feast reflected this balance of old and new.

I have a standing invitation from Chef Michael Solomonov to bake Iraqi-style laffa bread with him at Zahav, where he and his business partner, Steven Cook, offer classic Israeli tastes in a modern setting near the historic cobblestones of Dock Street in downtown Philadelphia.

Why Is This Restaurant Different?

Few kosher eateries jump through the necessary hoops to open for Passover,
but those who do are rewarded with good PR and new customers.

What’s a hamburger without its bun? Well it’s what’s on the menu at kosher restaurants across New York City, as they scrub down their kitchens and revamp their menus for the Passover holiday.

While most kosher eateries shut their doors for the week, a handful of restaurants will brave the trials and tribulations of opening for Passover.

“I find it one of the easiest holidays to cook for,” said Jeff Nathan, owner and chef at Abigael’s restaurant in Midtown, which will be open for Passover this year.
