My Most Favorite Food Opening Date!

We ate at My Most Favorite Food last night (review coming soon) and our waiter informed us that their new restaurant on the upper west side will be AMAZING and will be opening up on March 1st!  There will be sushi and an all new (dairy) menu to go with the restaurant!  He also mentioned that the 45th street location will be closing soon so they can renovate (we guess to match the standard of decor that will be in their new restaurant)!

If we are lucky they may bring the prices down too?! That’s wishful thinking! :)

The Prime Grill to open Japanese Restaurant “Prime KO” on the UWS

The Prime Grills new restaurant, Prime KO is under construction and set to open up towards the end of February.  The Japanese Steakhouse and full Sushi bar (sounds like another Sushi Metsuyan/Estihana) claims it will have moderate pricing (not sure what that means in the Kosher restaurant biz).

There will be two party rooms that can accommodate up to 100 people so there may finally be somewhere else to go other than Clubhouse to celebrate.

It will be located at 217 West 85th Street (off of Broadway). map

Do you think you will eat there??

Deli Kasbah

Rating (out of 5): 

We came here for what I believe was the fourth time I have ever been this past Saturday.  Since Shabbat ends early they are open but I think that may be a mistake because while it was nice for them to be open we were the only ones in the restaurant for most of our dinner.   So – right off the bat I would recommend it as a date place if you are looking for somewhere low key.  The prices are comparable to Le Meraise and Wolf and Lamb so expect to pay $20-$40 per entrée.   The ambiance? This place likes loves The Rebbe.  They have DVDs on flat screen TVS playing 24/7 showing him as well as other posters and information about him and his works.  From what we later found out that the owner was Baal Teshuva which explains the shrine like dedication to The Rebbe.

Most of our group ended up ordering the Philly steak sandwich based off of my recommendation.  I ordered it again and was not disappointed.  The meat was very juicy and the meal was amazing.  Ask for the white sauce on the side and cover it with it!  My fiancé ordered the ribs and they were quite tasty as well.  Most of their food tends to be on the greasy side however the taste is still good.  Their menu has steaks (try the Argentinian it’s delicious), chicken, and burgers with a variety of ways they cook them.

The service was lame considering we were the only customers however this has come to be the unfortunate standard in the Kosher restaurant world… hopefully someone can prove me wrong sometime in the near future.

I would highly recommend this place if prefer a night out in the city where the conversation and your friends are more important than the crowd and plan on seeing myself there again in the future.
