Closed for Passover


A high end eatery shuts down for the holiday. On a walk up Amsterdam Avenue during the intermediate days of Passover. The joint is not kosher per se. According to my sources, “the smoked fish is kosher, the family is sabbath observant, and they sell chametz in the store, so totally separate from the question of the kashrus of the cooked food itself, they won’t own or serve chametz during Pesach. I know the family a little, they are very honest and and kind people.”

    Never thought of Greengrass as “kosher” just kosher style. They brag about being the sturgeon kings…sturgeon is definitely not Kosher.
