Kosher Certification Pulled from Tel Aviv Restaurant in Great Neck

According to this story from Vos is Neias, VHQ certification has been pulled from Israeli-ish restaurant Tel Aviv in Great Neck.  After reading the article + comments the story looks like this.

  • Executive Chef Amos Hayan bought the restaurant via monthly payments.  If he left before full payment, ownership would revert back to the original owner, which is Michael Ginor.
  • Michael Ginor also owns a non-kosher restaurant in Great Neck – Lola.
  • Hayan left.
  • The day after, the Va’ad Harabonim of Queens pulled the certification.  Reasons for this appear to be that they do not allow someone to own a kosher and non-kosher restaurant in the same town.  Reasons being for one that it is too easy tempting to cheat their kashrut.
  • Although according to Ginor, they are still following kosher laws, they still do not have certification.

We will keep you updated if we hear any, well, updates.   It would be a shame to lose this restaurant, their patatas bravas were my favorite!
