Pita Grill Becoming Kosher on Midtown East in NYC [updated]

UPDATE: Grand Opening will be Wednesday, December 30th, 2015

In a conversation with the owner last night, we confirmed that Pita Grill, a non-kosher Middle Eastern 2-story restaurant on 2nd Ave & E57th st, is in process of becoming kosher.


Only Pita Grill’s 2nd Ave Midtown East location is becoming kosher

Pita Grill has 4 other locations in Manhattan. For now, this is the only location becoming kosher.

Menu items include shwarmas, schnitzels, burgers, grilled chicken, salads, falafel, and more. The website’s menu is not updated for kosher yet.

Kashrut is under the kosher supervision of the OU.

Pita Grill hours are Sunday – Thursday 11am-11pm. Friday 10am – until 2 hours before Shabbat. Saturday night opens 2 hours after Shabbat ends.

NOTE: Pita Grill’s Upper East Side location is not kosher. Only this location on 2nd & 57th. Sorry for any confusion.

    You write that only the UES is becoming kosher, yet the OU in this pop-up on their website implies that their Midtown East location is becoming kosher, too. Is that true?

    • The first line of the post says “2nd Ave & E57th st” which I guess is the border of Midtown East & UES. Apologies for the confusion.

    The kosher Pita Grill restaurant is on Seamless Web but you must search for it by name in the all restaurants view. It is not tagged yet to appear in the Kosher Section. Let’s give these guys support so Midtown East can keep one of its only Kosher options!
