Boston’s only Kosher restaurant (in the city), Milk Street Cafe, is currently under renovations to revamp the restaurant and expand its menu, which is currently dairy, to include a meat and sushi menu. For those that remember MSC’s foray into NYC on Wall Street, their eatery there included dairy, meat, and sushi stations. (Unfortunately, Occupy Wall Street protesters forced that restaurant to close.). This is the first major renovation for the 32 year old restaurant.
During the renovations the restaurant will remain open during the week – except for the first week of June – allowing both visitors to Boston and professionals who work downtown to continue to access the only kosher restaurant in the city.
Here are details of the restaurant provided to us in an interview with the owners of MSC:
When completed, the café menu will offer many more of the items currently offered on the popular corporate catering menu.
The most significant change is that though there will still be many vegetarian and fresh fish options, the new concept will offer a new additional station for beef, chicken, and turkey in all the ways Milk Street is known for- great sandwiches and soups, create your own and inventive salads, inspired and creative hot entrees-all made from scratch daily.
There will also be a new sushi bar, a coffee bar with espresso drinks, a bakery and panini station. In order to maintain the highest kashrut standards, all food will be now be served in disposable containers, and sealed before it crosses the counter. The most popular items will also be featured at the ‘grab and go’ section.
Beside the new stations, there will be a dramatic 2 story installation of the signature logo in the atrium and in the adjacent narrow outside windows of the building, and there will be outside seating with an awning that can easily convert to a sukkah. In addition to the all new café, a new additional 2500 square foot meat kitchen is under construction in the basement where all the cooking, baking and catering production happens.
The project should be completed by the end of the summer.
