Posted all the way back in February that a kosher/Middle-Eastern restaurant called Grill 212 was opening at 212 W. 80th (between Broadway & Amsterdam).
It took a little longer than expected, but they finally opened for business last Thursday.
The new UWS take-out restaurant will offer a full range of delicious Shabbat take out options including an on-site pareve bakery that will sell desserts, challot and other baked goods. The location has limited seating for dine in options and is under the supervision of Rabbi Avrohom Marmorstein.
H/t to MUW readers Elias, Iris, and Elana (that’s her photo above). Iris sent in this note on Friday:
I stopped in after the kitchen had already closed (it’s kosher, so they close early on Friday), but it looked nice and the couple (or so I assumed) who own/run it seem very friendly and pleasant. They have a seating area hidden in the back with about 6-8 (??) tables - not at all apparent that it’s there unless you look.
If you missed the post earlier, UWS restaurant Machiavelli was recently shuttered by the department of health.
In long overdue closing news, Asian vegetarian/vegan restaurant Zen Palate closed their Upper West Side branch earlier this month (they have three other locations that are still open).
Very belated thanks to MUW readers Iris, Sheridan, and Stephen for the heads up.
