Eating kosher in the city can be difficult, especially if you’re trying to find kosher restaurants with reasonable prices. Here are five kosher eateries that have proven to be both delicious and wallet-friendly.
1. 18 Restaurant, 240 E. 81st St.
Kosher comfort food has found its home in this Upper East Side restaurant. The downside here is that there are Upper East Side prices attached to some of these dishes. But no worries, 18 has hearty soups and sides that will only set you back $5 to $7. If you’re willing to splurge for a great burger or pastrami sandwich, this place is definitely worth checking out.
2. Bravo Kosher Pizza, 1367 Broadway
There are many pizza joints around, but finding the perfect kosher slice can be frustrating. Thankfully, Bravo Kosher Pizza offers New York and Chicago-style pies at competitive prices. This place is sure to please even the most budget-conscious diner.
3. Circa, 22 W. 33rd St.
Because Circa offers create-your-own salad, pasta and pizza options, it is one of the most customer-friendly kosher restaurants around. Located near Herald Square, this reasonably priced eatery also offers breakfast, baked goods and a variety of signature sandwich options. Not to mention everything on Circa’s menu is under $10. Fill up on the cream cheese and lox, and your stomach will be as full as your wallet.
4. Tiberias, 45 E. 34th St.
This midtown restaurant offers a wide variety of kosher food. In addition to Italian and American cuisine, Tiberias serves Japanese dishes, such as tempura and sushi. With a menu that includes pancakes and omelettes, make Tiberias your spot for weekend brunches. Plus, it’s open 24 hours, six days a week.
5. The Kosher Café at Weinstein dining hall, 5-11 University Place
Kosher Café offers delicious meals in a friendly environment that is in a convenient location for NYU students. Meat dishes are served Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Daily meals are served on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Special features include an omelette station, cereal bar and pizza.
“The Kosher Café is really convenient, and the food is good, [and] really high quality,” said Tali Sved, a sophomore in the College of Nursing. “At any event that is run by the university, there’s a kosher option. They’re really accommodating.”
Upstein closes for Shabbat on Friday evenings.
