There is no question, that one thing you'll miss when you leave NY is Kosher food. It is unbelievable how many kosher restaurants exist, especially in Brooklyn. There seems to be a kosher pizza store on every other block in Brooklyn and many are excellent. Granted there are a lot of religious Jews that live there and it would seem they love to eat out more than Jews of other states. There of course can only be so many eateries that can survive, even more so in this horrible economy. It should come as no surprise that stores like Sushi Station in Brooklyn close before their web site even gets up and running. A long standing traif diner closes (Caraville) in the midwood section of Brooklyn and who takes it over? Essex on Coney then moves it's location there and calls it Caraville Glatt. This establishment then closes probably due to the unimpressive reviews and what people really thought of the place. There are many lousy restaurants in NY and with the stiff competition and a lackluster economy few will stay above water long, unless they have something to offer in the way of price and/or excellent product. The rising costs of kosher meats and kosher cheese makes getting a cheap kosher meal on-the-go a very daunting task.
