The Evolution of the Kosher Restaurant Manhattan 

 

Over generations, kosher restaurants have served Jewish communities with the food they have known and love. From old family staples that followed them over into America to new flavours inspired by Middle Eastern cuisine, the kosher restaurant has been a Manhattan staple. Do you know the full history of kosher restaurants of Manhattan? Let's take a look at how they first started and how they have evolved to serve more communities with chef inspired dishes you can't find anywhere else in the world.  

 

The Beginning of the Kosher Restaurant in Manhattan

 

While the Jewish community was strong and growing in New York City for a few decades, there were few Kosher restaurants for them to choose from during the turn of the 20th century. That is until the first kosher restaurant opened in 1905. This New York dairy restaurant was known as Ratner’s. 

 

The food served in this kosher restaurant was much different than what you would find in a modern kosher restaurant Manhattan today. The restaurant served soup, whitefish, gentile fish, and a few other kosher options, catering towards the growing Jewish population in New York City. 

 

Following the establishment of the first kosher restaurant in Manhattan, large corporations started catering and targeting kosher cooks with ads. For example, in 1911 the vegetable shortening brand Crisco advertised their product as kosher and perfect for making traditional kosher dishes like potato pancakes and matzo balls. 

 

Regulating Kosher

 

Imagine living in a world where you could trust restaurants or food products labeled kosher? Well, before 1915, this was the case. Until 1915, there were no laws in place to ensure that kosher labels were in fact true. In fact, some restaurants and delis didn't even advertise that their food was kosher. To overcome this confusion, the New York State legislature passed the United States' first Kosher Food Law.

 

Under this new law, markets and food sellers must post signs stating that their food was non-kosher or kosher. They could no longer pass their food off for what it was not, and overall, this law has helped shape the modern kosher restaurant in Manhattan for the better. Customers now know for a fact the food they are eating meets their dietary rules and don’t have to deal with any confusion. 

 

In 1935, the Organised Kashrut Laboratories (OK) was established. If you look at the Kasbah BBQ and Grill homepage, you'll see that we have a notice reading "Under O.K. supervision." This means that the agency certifies that each of our dishes meets their strict kosher standards and are 100% kosher.

 

The Modern Kosher Restaurant in Manhattan 

 

As you would expect, the kosher dining experience in Manhattan has come a long way since the first all the way back in 1905. Today, there are over 300 kosher restaurants for you to choose from. The best part is that kosher food is expanding far beyond the Jewish community. Now, people from all walks of life choose to eat kosher food for the taste and health benefits it provides. 

 

Especially when dining at Kasbah BBQ and Grill, you have a variety of chef-inspired dishes to choose from all on the same menu! Whether you’re craving steak, sushi, fish, or anything in between, we can serve you the world-inspired tastes you crave.
