Hummus Bar

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Hummus Bar is a recent entrant to the "Kosher Hub" in Golders Green.  While the name suggests that it will be a typical Israeli hummus joint, this place is far from typical.  Mixed in with the classic Israeli dishes (which are done with a modern twist and tons of flavor) are some excellent Asian Fusion menu items, including Bao Buns and Thai Green Curry.

It is regularly packed with happy diners, so reservations are necessary during prime time for dinner.  It is not huge either, so getting a table is something that is no easy feat.  The bar is well-stocked, and the staff knows how to show its customers a great time.  For no reason other than to make us happy, our waiter showed up at our table with a beer "on the house".  

 This spot is highly recommended for any night out in London.

Kokoriko

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Kokoriko is Paris's premier Rotisserie - where they specialize in the most succulent, juicy, and flavorful bird around.  The chicken is so good and the skin is so rich and crisp that these merits alone would make Kokoriko a viable choice for a night out; however, there is even more to Kokoriko.

Generally just another great option within Paris's 17th Arrondisment, Kokoriko does stand alone when it comes to the late night dining contingent.  It remains open during the week until at least midnight, so if you're hungry late, this never falls short.  The restaurant is large, with a massive outdoor seating area that is open, enclosed, and heated in the winter.  The crowd during any night of the week is young, good looking, and looking for a fun evening with good food.  The staff are friendly and make you feel at home while you dine.  In fact, some of the waiters even say l'chaim with the guests when they serve them drinks from the fully-stocked bar.

In summary: come for the chicken, but stay for the long list of other factors that make this place a fun Paris night out.

Kahn Famous Deli

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Despite its name which suggests that it is casual and serves pastrami sandwiches (i.e. "Deli"), Kahn Famous Deli is one of Paris's most high-end, properly executed, and hip French Bistro-style restaurants.  Located alongside the gorgeous Place du Marechal Juin in Paris's 17th Arrondisment, the restaurant's facade (which is somewhat understated) doesn't prepare you for what's inside: an elegant bar and suit-clad waiters welcoming diners into a large back dining room with an elegant purple-lit dome with dark tables and plush velvet seating.  The daily scene involves a young and good-looking crowd (not unlike many of Paris's best kosher restaurants).  Make sure to reserve, as the restaurant will certainly be packed from the moment it opens at 7:30pm until midnight.

While the experience is absolutely top-notch, the highlight at Kahn is the food itself.  The menu contains all of the French Bistro classics, and they're done with such perfection that Kahn is able to elevate itself beyond the dozens of other (all pretty good or better) kosher French Bistro-style spots around the city.  The bone marrow appetizer was one of the best dishes I've ever tasted in my life, served piping hot out of the broiler with crunchy salt crystals and a rich sauce Bordelaise (that I saved for the frites because the marrow was too succulent and flavorful to combine with a separate powerful flavor).  The foie gras was also done to such a degree of perfection that I had to eat an unusually high number of very small bites just to ensure it lasted as long as possible.

The service was a great compliment to the food and ambiance.  The waiters were clearly excited by seeing me enjoy my experience and sought to go above-and-beyond to make sure that it was memorable.

Kahn is highly recommended in a city where there is so much good it is hard to distinguish greater from great.

Ba"Ghetto Meat

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Ba"Ghetto is a Roman-style meat restaurant located in the Jewish Ghetto of Rome, right on Via del Portico d'Ottavia.  It's sister restaurant, Ba"Ghetto Milky is located nearby.  This restaurant is a highlight of any trip to Rome.  Great food, elegant but fun ambiance, and a true Jewish- Roman experience.  For centuries, the Jews of Rome have been a major force of influence when it comes to food, and Ba"Ghetto represents the best of this.  

The restaurant is typically very crowded, and attracts locals and tourists alike.  The diners are usually a cross section of people; it is not the type of kosher restaurant that attracts and all-Jewish crowd.  Reservations are very much encouraged.  

The menu is expansive, and the chef generally offers a few specials each night that are not on the menu.  The result is that there is a lot from which to choose.  The homemade pastas were notably doughy and flavorful.  And, the meat dishes were cooked perfectly.

Don't forget to leave room for desert.  Even though parve gelato is available down the street, it is worth indulging in Ba"Ghetto tiramisu.

Kavod

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Kavod is one of the top restaurants in Paris, in terms of food, service, elegance, location, and price.  It is the top choice in the city for a fancy night out.  Located just steps from the Champs-Elysees, Kavod is situated to allow you to enjoy a great meal while out on the town.  It is also located on the block of the Israeli Embassy, and shares the embassy's security services.  

The space is modern and tasteful, and the kitchen is open to the restaurant through a large window into the dining room allowing diners a peek into the food prep.  The dishes were expertly plated and made from top quality ingredients.
