New York City to start grading restaurants like Los Angeles!

Did you hear that Kosher world?  New York City has announced today that they will begin grading restaurants similar to how they do it in Los Angeles.  Restaurants with 0 to 13 “violation points” will receive an A.  Scores of 14 to 27 points are a B, and 28 or more results in a C.  The Department hopes the new rating system will save time. Restaurants with A grades will be inspected yearly, while those with Bs will be every 5 to 7 months and those with Cs every 3 to 5 months.  Restaurants can appeal grades, too, and receive a “Grade Pending” sign to post in lieu of the contested letter until a re-inspection is conducted one month later.

They expect most restaurants to receive a B but we think the average will be much lower in the Kosher world.  Numerous restaurants have been shut down before because of rats cleanliness, hopefully this will cause them to clean up their act! Or at least hide things under the counters better!

How do you think this will effect the industry?  Do you know of any restaurants that deserve an F?

Terri now Kosher

Terri is now kosher under the IKC!  I have walked by this place many times and thought it was only a juice bar but apparently they offer a wide range of Vegan/Organic sandwiches and wraps as well as having fresh fruit and veggie smoothies.  Have you been here before?  Let us know how it is in the comments! Also, does anyone know much about the International Kosher Council as far as how good their hechsher is?  Holla at us and let us know!

Subsational (Avenue P)

Subsational

Rating (out of 5): 

On Memorial Day we made the unfortunate decision to go to Coney Island to celebrate. As good as it was for our egos (we were better than everyone there) unfortunately the overall taste that it left with us was sour. We decided to cleanse that taste with the offerings of Subsational in Brooklyn.

If you haven’t been here in over a year then you would be in for a surprise as they have done a total renovation on the place. They also made some adjustments to the menu. We assume this was because of the entrance of Carlos and Gabby’s to the market – which has forced most Kosher restaurants to start acting like real restaurants.

My constant at a hamburger shop is the Pastrami burger, so naturally I ordered it.  I also ordered the buffalo wings chicken fingers.

Subsational

One look at the buffalo wings and we returned them. The chickens must have been starved and anorexic because there was no sign of any kind of hormones – they were little and looked unapetizing.  We went to return these with the manager.    Naturally, he put up a fight “sorry, you should know what you are ordering” but after a few of my “can’t you think outside of the box?” and “don’t you guys know how to do customer service” and a “you are going to lose a customer” he quickly realized it was time to offer us a replacement item.  Enter the chicken fingers.

They were good considering they were made exactly how C&G’s does theirs with corn flakes.  Maybe they all come from the distributor like this?  Does anyone know?

Subsational

Now it was time for the main event – the pastrami burger.  Although the meat quality was bad the pastrami on top creates the most amazing/juicy flavor.   It was quite messy (it fell apart by the end, see how many napkins I used below), it was tasty and I would def recommend it if you want a good old fashioned not good for you good tasting hamburger.

We got the spicy fries as a side, quite expensive for $4.99 (how does Mcdonalds sell fries for 99 cents??) But they were on par.

We didn’t order anything from the Mexican side of their menu but will definitely have a fiesta the next time we eat there.

If u want a guaranteed fast food meal with a solid taste, I would definitely recommend checking out Subsational.

UPDATED: I had had originally given them 4 stars but meant to give them three, thanks Steven!
