The fast-casual, Mediterranean restaurant chain Taïm that specializes in falafel, has forgone their kosher certification in three of their locations. The once strictly vegetarian restaurant has multiple locations throughout NYC and Washington DC.
This change comes in response to requests by non-kosher customers that the restaurant serve chicken (which is not kosher certified).
Taïm’s branches that are no longer kosher are:
- Flatiron (NYC)
- Financial District (NYC)
- Long Island City (NYC)
- Dupont Circle (DC)
Taïm’s branches that are still kosher (and remain vegetarian) are:
- Nolita (NYC)
- West Village (NYC)
- Georgetown (DC)
The kosher Taïm locations in NYC are supervised by United Kosher Supervision (UKS) and its Washington DC locations are kosher certified by DC Kosher.
