Again, Restaurant Week, which is actually 3 weeks long, will be void of any participating kosher restaurants. To my knowledge, no kosher restaurant has ever participated in this event. It is currently in year 21. (See our post from last year)
I’m unsure if this is deliberate, if no kosher restaurants qualify to participate, or if the organizers behind the event (The City of New York, American Express, and Open Table) just don’t think about the large subset of the population in NYC that keeps kosher.
I can’t imagine it’s because restaurants don’t qualify. There are plenty of upscale kosher places that should be more than willing to participate. Unless they don’t know about it, or, unless they choose not to join. That would silly.
Does anyone know how to get a restaurant added to Restaurant Week? If so, please comment below. I’d love to let the owners of local kosher restaurants know how to join.
