Turquoise: The Official Kosher Seafood Restuaurant of “Law & Order”

This entry was posted in Culture, Life on by .

ME: Have you ever heard of a restaurant called Turquoise?

TAMAR: No…well, not until on Law & Order last night.

It’s been a busy week in the Roth household. A kid who does not know how to go to sleep, coupled with two parents who do not get enough sleep. Tomorrow we’re going to visit the in-laws in Philly. Therefore, as encouraged by our newest board-book — see right — we’re going to go out on a date.

Pretty much every time we go to a restaurant, we go to a meat place. Since, you know, I’m a vegetarian and our kitchen is strictly non-meat. We’re always on the hunt for a place that can give us a good steak and a good…um…something without meat. Just before I got on the subway this morning, she called out to me, “Maybe that Turquoise place?”

I Googled, found it, and then stopped. Two things about the sign made me freeze. Can you spot the potential errors?

Apparently, I wasn’t the only one confused. Tamar went on to explain:

TAMAR: At first they were talking about a “kosher seafood” restaurant, and I was like, they really didn’t do their research. But then later someone said a line about how the crab was fake. And I was satisfied.

I’m still waiting to see how “aged meat” fits with the “fresher fish than ours are still at sea” line. But, hey, if a restaurant’s good enough for the men and women who make New York safe for the rest of us, it’s probably good enough for me.
