Is there anywhere in the Union Square area to pick up a kosher lunch? Google tells me there's Pita Joe on 14th street, but I don't see a hechsher.

University Pita, on university place and 12th street. It's a little hole in the wall (near a parking garage), but they have 2 tables upstairs if you'd like to eat in.

They claim to use kosher meats, and it's all israeli inside, but I doubt they have a hechsher. Definitely open on shabbos too and run by the same israelis.

(that said, I live 5 minutes away and I <3 Pita Joe)

Thanks! That might work.

Oh, gosh, I remember 12 years ago I used to go to Cafe 18... I bet it's not around anymore.

When I go to NYC, I find this list that organizes the restaurants geographically clusters them by location to be very helpful:

Oh wow! I remember that list... I used to live off it. Didn't know it was still around.

Here is what it looked like in 2000: http://web.archive.o...uda/kosher.html

Cafe 18 was there back then...

A word of caution, it's not always 100% updated or accurate (so call to confirm beforehand) - I had some interesting dates because of that!

True Fact.

A Kosher Krispy Kreme had just opened up in the World Trade Center in July 2001 as listed here:

Definitely the best Shwarma I've had in NY, don't let the dilapidated look fool you....

True fact. I went in there just a few days before 9/11. My only Krispy Kreme donut ever.

I think that should be the answer to everything on H.com. It was God's plan that these kids should end up in prison in Japan, just as it was God's plan that certain 8th graders shouldn't be accepted to either of the two schools they applied to. And also that a thirteen-year old should have a kid and that certain people should dream of sex with the president. It solves all problems with no need for discussion. - Xi

University Pita (Star K) or a few places on 1st Ave near Beth Israel, unless you want to eat at the NYU kosher cafeteria.
So little room, so much to say!

Not worth it. It's funny when you're kosher you think nonkosher things (or the kosher versions of them!) have magical powers. They don't.

It's a puffed air oily sugary glazed donut. It tastes exactly as you'd expect that to taste. Greasy sugary air. I'm not saying they don't taste good, but don't cry over missing your chance.

What're you talking about? KK's are amaaaazing. Best donuts I ever had. :dreaming:

They're still just donuts. So there are two kinds of donuts mostly (before you start dealing with fillings). Cakey donuts and the lighter air-filled donuts.

Let him imagine the best air-filled fried/glazed donut he's ever had, and then imagine it was a little better than that. Ok, he knows what a KK donut is.
Done. He'll survive.
