Jewish Foodie News

It’s a new year and there’s plenty going on in the world of Jewish and kosher food.

Here in New York, The Prime Grill will be celebrating its Bar Mitzvah year by relocating to its new location at 25 West 56th Street. Joey Allaham, owner of Prime Hospitality Group, felt that it was time to move on to another space and present the customers with the “new generation” of The Prime Grill.

According to the press release last week, the expanded Prime Grill will feature more options on the menu and a wood-brick oven. It will also offer a new feature, The Herzog Room where customers will be able to enjoy rare vintages of Herzog Kosher wine, as well as arrange tastings & pairings with a Herzog sommelier.

Meanwhile one of my favorite kosher eateries continues to expand – Soom Soom will soon open its newest location on the Upper East Side. I love everything at Soom Soom, but my favorite things to order are the Sabich sandwich, limonana and the fried potato on a stick – its heavenly! And the best part? Mondays are buy one-get one free night – buy one sandwich and get the second free! Best kosher dinner deal around.

If you love to hear and share stories about family and food, an upcoming event at 92Y Tribeca might be just the ticket for you. On January 16th the venue will be hosting “Beyond Bubbie: Tales from the Kitchen.” More about the event:
