Kureiji on the UWS of Manhattan Drops OK Certification

A sign out front of Kureiji indicated that the restaurant is no longer kosher certified, and has just dropped its OK certification due to the sale of the restaurant to new owners.

The new owners will be renaming the restaurant POKE-A-BOWL.

After speaking to the restaurant’s management, the eatery is in process of finding another kosher certification that will allow them to stay open on Shabbat with the non-Jewish partner retaining ownership on the holy days. This is in line with many other kosher restaurants open on weekends that have non-Jewish owners.

At this time, the restaurant is continuing to procure its ingredients from the same kosher sources.
