The Kitchen Table Restaurant

[Guest Post from Roberta Scher of]

From the moment I entered the The Kitchen Table Restaurant in Mountain View, California, it was obvious that I was going to have a special experience. My first impression was correct.

The Kitchen Table is located on “restaurant row” in the small town of Mountain View, California – in the heart of Silicon Valley. It is just a few miles from Palo Alto, and within a 40-­‐minute drive of San Francisco. Upon entering the restaurant, I was greeted by a welcoming staff, contemporary, creative decor and an innovative, but moderately priced menu. Only nine months old, the restaurant is an exceptional artisanal, upscale eating destination; one that focuses on fresh, California seasonal, made-­‐from-­‐scratch food, and kosher certified by the Vaad of Northern California.

Cafe 2012 is now open in Great Neck as of March 8, 2010.  My cousin stopped by there on Sunday and said that it “has too much on the menu” and took over an hour to get food to some customers, prompting them to leave before ordering.  Any one else been there and care to let us know how it was?

Shalom Bombay to open a location in Murray Hill

We just received word from David Gruber, a partner from Shalom Bombay in Teaneck that they will be opening their first New York City location at 39th and Lexington on Sunday, April 11th.  This news coming a week after Dakshin II was titled as being the only Kosher Indian restaurant in NYC! Sorry that their reign did not last long however we here at Thanks a Glatt! love competition!

Shalom Bombay’s NYC location will feature a more upscale ambiance than their Teaneck counterpart.  Their menu will remain predominately the same however they will have more lunch and take-out specials (available to order via Seamless Web as well).  They will also be open on Fridays and will be under the Orthodox Union hechsher.

This might be my new favorite place to order from since I work semi-close to the neighborhood!

The best news though is that David mentioned that the first 50 people to email will be invited to an exclusive free tasting on April 8th!
