Burger Zone has closed (Exclusive)

Unfortunately we have some sad news about Burger Zone on the Upper East Side, they look to have closed according to this photo sent in from one of our great Thanks A Glatt readers.  They were supposed to go Glatt Kosher after the nine days but it looks like that never panned out.  Hopefully someone else will pick up where they left off and reopen something kosher soon!

Shalom Bombay: The Review

Rating (out of 5):

There was a storm a few weeks ago that shut down all the LIRR lines – so what better way to spend the night stuck in NYC than to check out New York City’s newest Glatt Kosher Indian restaurant, Shalom Bombay under the hechsher of the Orthodox Union.  With much success in Teaneck they decided to try their chances in the more prestigious Manhattan market – and we think they are going to make it.

Dakshin II – The Review (hey, that rhymed!)

Rating (out of 5):

QUICK REVIEW: I was up at 57th and Lexington today when I realized I was hungry and it was time for lunch.  Unfortunately it doesn’t seem like there is much to eat in this area (can someone please open up a pizzeria).  Fortunately for me however – I am the editor of the #1 online Kosher restaurant blog so finding somewhere was not that big an issue.  The smart people we were, in the 95+ degree weather we decided to take our wallets to the kosher offerings of Dakshin II’s Indian Buffet.   There is nothing more refreshing than spicy food on a hot August day (insert sarcasm mark here).  Being on 1st avenue is a bit out of the way for most of the people who work in this area, so I will assume they have a better crowd for dinner.

The Buffet

When you walk in the first thing you see is the buffet table stocked full of, yep, you guessed it – Indian cuisine.  The decor is typical for an Indian Buffet.  Hopefully Shalom Bombay will make their place nicer (if they ever open).  The lunch buffet is $9.95 and they do not take credit cards for orders under $25.   Quick thought before I forget: they didn’t have extra plates when I went back for seconds or thirds (isn’t this a buffet rule?) or even fourths.

Sauces

If you love sauces like me, you will appreciate the ones they had.  Although the presentation could be better their selection was good.  The yogurt sauce with naan was so good I couldn’t believe it was parve.  For the main course, the chicken masala and baghare baingan were my favorite.  Spiced just right they went great when scooped up with some naan.  Unfortunately all of the pictures I took of the main dishes came out bad, I will have to go back and take a pic of them for you guys another time.  A few more pics though for your enjoyment and consideration.

Rice and Chicken Tandoori

The chicken looked REALLY spicy (it wasn’t).  Still good however.

Fruit Salad

Wikipedia defines a salad as having a mixture of fruits.  While this one only contained cantaloupe I will take their word for it that it was in fact a salad.

Overall it was ok,  if you are in the mood for Glatt Kosher Indian food and are in the area then you should definitely check them out.

The Kitchen Table Restaurant

[Guest Post from Roberta Scher of Koshereye.com]

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 now open in Great Neck

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?
