nah, not weird. u just have a skewed perspective if you legitimately think 3 scallops for $20 is a "bargain" but i doubt that's actually the case.
Am I weird that I see three scallops for $20 and think that's a bargain or is it just because I know what food and labor costs?
What's the matter, Lauren? Is your Google button broken?
Came. Ate. Won't return.
While I love Kevin Rathbun's restaurant, this small plate approach feels like Rip-off City. I don't expect Ruby Tuesday-size dishes, but I do expect the damn entree to be more than three grilled scallops on a veg for nearly $20. (Is that asking too much!?!?)
Also, I would love a simple explanation of what the f- a trenette is. The menu felt like an Italian vocabulary test.
I love it!!! The plates are small but you can try lots of diffrent things. 👍👍
Ham is most likely from Benton's. Same as what Restaurant Eugene
uses. You can order that shit (meant in the best way possible) online.
I've been ordering it for years.
I think a visit is in order, sounds great!
"if you were relying ONLY on the orthodox community to support your business, then yeah. but i was hoping that there would be enough interest from everyone else to support it. i just like the idea of a kosher deli in an urban area, it would make atlanta seem more like it's "arrived". it's just a pipe dream."
If Miami does not have a Kosher deli worth noting, then Atlanta surely will not either. And in all of NY, I can only think of Second Avenue Deli that is Kosher, in the city and good.
"when 50% of the people of the religion you claim to be associated with, can't eat at your restaurant because it doesn't meet their standards— you can't call yourself a jewish deli."
Way less than 50% of Jews are kosher, probably about 10%. Jewish Deli means it is owned by Jews and serves food associated with Jewish culture (culture, not religion). Not that it is kosher. It would be called a kosher deli if it was kosher.
We get it. You are Jewish and try to keep kosher. You are part of the minority.
@kiteless - I onlly post as testicleless. More than one person doesn't like you here. Your opinions are sort of like your androgyny: they don't make sense and (like your appearance) are pretty stupid. You need to think things out before you start spouting off. Sort of like that manly fedora you wear, you need to think things through.

if location was important for a jewish deli, it wouldn't be in midtown, it would be near emory. somewhere near briarcliff and lavista.
well, i'm gonna go there anyway to try it out. i just wish we had enough frummies in town to have a real kosher jewish deli with stuff like rolled beef, tongue and kishka— imagine it, right in midtown. that would be awesome.
Jewish most certainly does not imply Kosher, especially when you consider the vast majority of Jewish people do not even keep those rules. And like people above said, if Katz's Deli in NY or the Rascal House (RIP) in Miami are labeled as traditional Jewish delis, and observant Jews in Miami or NY do not take issue, then this one certainly is as well. JoeinAtlanta has competition!
i don't know why you registered three separate accounts to point out that i'm androgynous. is there something wrong with that?
you can't trust people who don't like "sunny".
or people who don't eat swiss on their reubens.
We need to get back to the real question here: @kiteless, are you a man or a woman?
And about the whole secondary issue--the kosher thing--everyone knows that if you sprinkle kosher salt on your food it is kosher. G-d loves that stuff.

"jewish" implies "kosher". the delis that serve "jewish" style food is a misuse of the term. for example there's a "jewish" (kosher) deli off of hammond drive that serves much more middle eastern style food than one would typically associate with 'jewish'— it's because they're sephardim. not all jews come from eastern europe, but the ones that do are a culture called 'ashkenazim'. you can be jewish without being ashkenazi.
@dave: that's shomer negiah. personally i don't hold by it that strictly but a lot of people do.
i'm not really too strict about it, but the reason jews don't believe that you can change the rules as the time changes is because people are pretty easy to manipulate— we have all these rules concerning tzedekah (meaning "justice" rather than charity— it's viewed that giving to the poor is a justice that you have to perform rather than just something "nice" that you do), rules about how to treat animals, rules about basic social laws such as laws against murder, cheating, and stealing, etc.— once you start saying "yeah, well this rule seems silly, so let's throw it out", someone could come along and say the same thing about a law that's important, and people would go along with it (which unfortunately has happened somewhat in reform judaism, they apparently wrote alternate versions of things in the siddur that don't mention G-d to avoid offending atheists that attend the shul... which really makes no sense).
it's kind of like the slippery slope argument, once we throw out the stuff that we personally think is silly, you end up throwing the baby out with the bathwater, and then all the commandments are lost. i don't totally agree with the argument, but that's where they're coming from.
If chopped (chicken) liver with duck fat instead of the traditional shmaltz (chicken fat) is good, then would chopped DUCK liver with duck fat be even better? Can duck livers be used to make "chopped liver"?
@kiteless, as @hestic1 said, several of the famous delis in New York prominently note that they are not kosher, yet I'm sure they would think nothing of referring to themselves as a "Jewish deli." The meanings of "kosher deli" and "Jewish deli" can overlap, but nobody ever said they are exactly the same thing.
