Elegant Kosher restaurant Jezebel is the latest entry into the Jewish-food trend that now includes Kutsher's, La Vara, Jack's Wife Freda, and others. Cafe Boulud alum and former Food & Wine Best New Chef Bradford Thompson is behind the stove — last night he whipped up a Kosher menu that included lamb agnoletti, arctic char, and filet of beef for two (an abbreviated version of the final lineup) for such luminaries as Russell Simmons (who led a prayer with Rabbi Marc Schneier) and Princess Sharis of Abu Dhabi, who attended a celebration for the hanging of the mezuzah, a symbolic piece of parchment inscribed with Torah verses. Opening day is Thursday — check out the bi-level space and a few of the dishes in our slideshow.
