With the huge Israel Day Parade coming up on this Sunday May 31st, many people and families will seek convenient kosher options in the city.

While this list is not exhaustive by any means, I wanted to compile a quick cheat sheet for you to use on Sunday should the day get a bit crazy (i.e. you get a little ‘hangry’ and need some good kosher grub):



Midtown (near parade route)

  • Butterfish
  • Cafe Classico
  • Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (405 Park Avenue by 54th Street – is typically closed on Sundays but will be open this Sunday for the parade)
  • Great American Health Bar
  • Mike’s Bistro
  • Milk and Honey
  • Pizza da Solo
  • Prime Grill
  • Wolf and Lamb


  • Amsterdam Burger Co.
  • Gotham Burger
  • Kasbah
  • My Most Favorite Food
  • Noi Due
  • Prime Burger
  • Prime Ko
  • Talia’s Steakhouse

I’m sure there are a bunch more places I’m leaving out here. Feel free to post your go-to places in the comments below.

Additionally, there’s a huge Celebrate Israel Festival in the afternoon on the west side by the Hudson River (i.e. a schlep to the closest kosher restaurant), with a bunch of kosher restaurants and businesses offering their foods on-site including:


  • 16 Handles

  • Filicori Zecchini
  • Gan Asia
  • Grill on Wheels
