A new wave of dining is hitting the streets of New York City, according to Brooklyn College graduate Renee Saff, and it’s all kosher.
She recommends Bison and Bourbon, one of the cities 325 kosher eateries, a list that continues to grow. Over the last two decades, the number of kosher restaurants has grown by over fifty percent.
But it’s not just restaurants. Saff says that part of the rise of kosher dining is largely due in part to the introduction of kosher pop up carts, blogs, and cookbooks.
Benzion Raskin is the owner of Benz’s, a kosher fish store in Crown Heights, who says that the need for high quality ingredients that adhere to the strict kosher guidelines was extremely important for the community.
