    Is Ahimsa in the West Village open on Shabbos? Is Rabbi Cohen Orthodox, and certifies that the retaurant is careful about bodek?-, (Barbara Arfe)

    • Yes, it is open on Shabbos.
      Yes Rabbi Cohen is Orthodox:

      I doubt they are Bodek.

      Plenty of kosher restaurants are open on Shabbat. That does not disqualify a restaurant from being kosher, despite what many think.
