I decided to meet up with an old friend here from my trip to Israel for dinner last night.  Since I keep fully kosher I figured it would be a good place to show off the “trendiest” kosher has to offer in Manhattan.  It’s a great place to go on a Thursday or Saturday night.. you will probably run into someone you know on a date!

Since we didn’t have a reservation they sat us at the worst table in the house – in the very front right behind the hostess.  I pleaded with the faux-hawked manager to give us a different open table but when I realized he wouldn’t budge I gave up.  That was pretty annoying because I hate sitting in a lame spot in a restaurant, I want to be in the middle of all the action.

Speaking of the workers, non of the employees seem to be Jewish.  Most of them are from some European country and one is even tattoo’d all over his body (ask him to see the tattoo on the inside of his mouth!)  They are usually quick to take orders but expect to wait a good while for your food to come out.  The larger your party the most likely some of the food doesn’t come out warm either.

The worst almost happened.  Here we were on a Saturday night, tired of eating meat for shabbat and then for lunch today and looking for somewhere dairy to go for dinner.  What is our best location option? Ugh, Cafe Muscat.  After about ten minutes I finally convince my fiance to go there.  We arrive at around 10:00pm and what a surprise – the line is out the door.  Did I forget to mention that it’s raining?  So we make a reservation “it will only take twenty minutes” and coincidentally park the car in the same spot we sat last week – and we wait.  Twenty minutes passes by and we decide to go in and see if our table is ready.  It’s not.  We float around and wait and finally decide to go down the street to Benny’s Pizza.  A place that my fiance claimed had the best kosher pizza around.  We leave and then we notice some people outside mentioning that they do not want to wait and leave themselves.  The girls jump at this opportunity and start calculating if we can get in any faster.  After hearing “they told us it would only be 20 minutes an hour ago” from some others waiting outside, I finally convince everyone to go to Benny’s.

In an effort to be more social since life seems to be moving faster than ever,  I have decided to go out more with old friends and family.  The first place I started with was last night at Cafe Muscat a Kosher Dairy restaurant in Flushing Meadows (Queens) New York.

Saturday nights at Cafe Muscat always seem like a mistake however our options for Kosher dairy are limited.  When we arrived there we weren’t surprised.  We had the choice of waiting at the door while hovering over peoples tables or just sitting in the car so we chose the ladder.  About 30 minutes later they finally had a table for us.  You should have seen the look on the other peoples faces when we walked right in and got a table!
