This June, Jezebel will be joining the ranks of the nouveau Jewish restaurants opening around the city like Kutsher’s, Jack’s Wife Freda, and La Vara. Menachem Senderowicz and Henry Stimler will open their “Modern American Kosher” spot at 323 W. Broadway in Soho, with Cafe Boulud alum and former Food & Wine Best New Chef Bradford Thompson as culinary director.
“Think of our menu as modern riffs on American dishes, using only the freshest seasonal ingredients … and the food just happens to be kosher,” says Thompson.
“There’s been this crazy attention towards updated Jewish fare but what we’re looking to do is take a great chef like Bradford Thompson and have him prepare sophisticated American food in a sexy, young environment,” adds Senderowicz. The 150-seat bi-level space, designed by Gregory Okshteyn of Studios Go, will have a downstairs cocktail lounge (L’chaim!) and dining room upstairs.
