Adafina, a gourmet kosher food brand in the UK, has launched a Glatt Kosher restaurant inside the oldest synagogue in Britain: Bevis Marks Synagogue, which opened 312 years ago in 1701, thus aptly naming the eatery: Restaurant 1701.
The restaurants menus offer a gourmet take on traditional Jewish/Israeli food, including breakfast items such as Shakshuka or Bagels n’ Lox; or their Lunch/Dinner menu including P’tcha, Chicken Soup (labeled as “Jewish Penicillin”), Gefilte Fish, Couscous, Flanken, Kreplach, Sachertorte, and more.
Check out their menus: Breakfast, Lunch/Dinner: Starters, Entrees, Desserts
From the images and menus on their website, expect small but beautiful dishes at expensive prices.
Under the supervision of the Sephardi Kashrut Authority.
The Bevis Marks Restaurant, which previously was housed in the synagogue location has moved to a nearby larger location and is labeled on the map below.

Pretty sweet, that part of London is so rich in Jewish history. You’re bringing back childhood memories for me. Menu looks like it’s rich in tradition — I hope this venture is successful.
