Not long ago I compiled a list of Kosher Subway Restaurants across the U.S., which in its heyday numbered 12 across the country, 5 alone in the NYC metro area.
Today, all 5 of the NYC area Kosher Subways are closed and only a total of 2 remain open nationally.
Here are the remaining 2 Kosher Subway restaurants that have thrived (not necessarily in places you’d expect), both inside JCCs (although the one inside the Rockville JCC closed as well):
- Cleveland, OH – JCC 26001 South Woodland Rd., Beachwood
Los Angeles, CA – 8948 W. Pico Blvd, Los Angeles
- Miami, FL – JCC 18900 Northeast 25th Ave, North Miami Beach
Baltimore, MD – 706 Reisterstown Rd., Baltimore Rockville, MD – JCC 6125 Montrose Rd., Rockville
Now I’m left wondering… what will be the next kosher restaurant fad to sweep the country and will it last?
Surely, the Kosher Subway chain experiment is an eye-opening lesson to would be restauranteurs.
