Subway on Jewel Avenue is no longer kosher?

We are hearing rumors that the Subway on Jewel Avenue is no longer kosher.  So if you stop by there and you see them serving Pepperoni and Cheese melts then assume the rumor is true.  So sad to see it go but these Kosher Subways were never good to begin with!

Shalom Bombay Teaneck to close

Thanks a Glatt! has learned that Shalom Bombay in Teaneck has been sold and will be re-opening under another name and probably without hechsher.  We are sad to see them go but wish them more luck on their NYC locations! Official press release below.

June 23, 2011


We at Shalom Bombay of Teaneck would like to take the opportunity to thank the many loyal patrons in Bergen County and its surrounding areas. It has been our pleasure to serve you for the last 2 1/2 years. The enthusiasm about our first location has also led to the great success of our second location, opened almost 1 year ago in Manhattan.

At this time, we have chosen to accept a buyout offer. The former proprietor of our location expressed an interest in reacquiring it and we felt that it was the most prudent path for us to take. He will be operating the Teaneck restaurant under a different name, not associated with Shalom Bombay or the RCBC.

We will now have the opportunity to focus on the Manhattan location and help it on its continued path of growth and popularity. We will also be focusing our efforts on expanding our catering business (weddings, Kiddushes, dinner events, Bar-Mitzvahs) with our unique but versatile cuisine options.

The people of North Jersey are quite discerning foodies with an array of local Kosher options. Shalom Bombay Manhattan will still be that appealing destination for special times spent in the city as well as for the many professionals who work and do business in Manhattan and like to enjoy mouthwatering Indian food for a great value lunch.

Any outstanding coupons and gift certificates will be honored at the Manhattan location. The last day of operations as Shalom Bombay of Teaneck will be Sunday, June 26, 2011.

We look forward to continuing to serve you and cater to all your needs.

Are you a professionally trained chef with Persian cooking experience? There is apparently a $100k a year private chef job waiting for you

I can think of a few thousand women in Great Neck who qualify for this job without the professional experience.  $80-110k averages to about $275 a day, meaning someone could grab a few combinations for you from Colbeh and still pocket about $100 a day if you really need persian food that badly.   I don’t even get why someone would want to pay for this – why not just eat out every night it would be cheaper and much more enjoyable?

Also – if this is your add and you have any daughters please leave a comment below – we need to talk!

Shalom Bombay to re-open on Thursday

Shalom Bombay has said that they plan on opening back up their midtown location on Thursday.

What is with all the shutdowns lately?  With Rosa’s pizza getting closed today and Shalom Bombay being shutdown last week, has New York City decided to crack down on kosher restaurants in NYC?
