New York City: Kosher Steakhouse

on August 15, 2011

Le Marais Glatt Kosher Gourmet Butcher Shop @ 150 West 46th Street

Our team just recently finished the university web redesign project and decided on this kosher steakhouse to celebrate. I learned it took 4 years of politics and 2 years of planning and development to make it happen. Below are just some of the foods we had that night. Almost everyone ordered steak and a bottle of wine. :D

Le Marais - Waygu Beef Sliders

My first waygu beef experience. It taste like regular beef burgers to me >.< The bread was buttery and soft. The plate came with a side of frizzled leeks. They were so good, it was polished off the appetizer plate before people got to the sliders.

Le Marais - Chicken Noodle Soup

Hands down, the best bowl of chicken noodle soup I’ve ever had. Delicious, hearty, warm and delightful. I finished every drop of it. The noodles were even home made. Jewish folks really do know how to make the best simple foods!

Le Marais - Merguez, Couscous

Spicy lamb sausages and a side of couscous was one of the appetizers ordered. The lamb sausages were flavorful and didn’t leave any gamey aftertaste. Couscous rice was cooked right and seasoned well. This dish was a winner for its simplicity and flavors.

Le Marais - Steak au Poivre, Frites

My steak choice of the night was the black-crusted steak au poivre that came with pommes frites (shoe string fries). Amazingly juicy and tender. There wasn’t even a need for a steak knife. The butter knife on the table sufficed. I love shoe string fries! They came out crispy and salted right.

Le Marais - Poached Pear

Topped off a fabulous night with a poached pear dessert. Vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce accompanied this semi sweet dish. I didn’t want to eat anything too heavy after all that food and wine. The poached pear was cute (sat in its own little waffle cup), light and refreshing!

I wouldn’t have known to come to this restaurant had it not been recommended by my Jewish coworkers. Great service and location. We all left happy, since the department spotted the bill :P
