This shocking-to-few news comes mere weeks after a conversation I had with an associate at a major Manhattan law firm at a closing we both attended. This attorney, a man with no heavenly imposed
restrictions on what he may consume, lamented the state of kosher restaurants in New York City, many of which he has eaten in whilst meeting with his religious clientele. His main gripe was with Prime Grill in particular because of the reputation it holds among his kosher friends. In his words, "when all you have to compare it to is other bad restaurants, of course you'll think its something special."
To my delight he said his favorite kosher restaurant was the one that happens to be my favorite as well, Mike's Bistro. Here's one for the underdog!
