Village Voice's Description
Channeling an ancient Catskills resort property, this Tribeca restaurant seeks to reconstruct the traditional Jewish deli menu along fine-dining lines. The house-smoked pastrami--provided in two permutations, the "deckle" and the "flat"--is superb, streaked with fat and intensely flavorful. So is the veal tongue, as soft as a down pillow. Gefilte fish has been resuscitated as fibrous puck of fish, without all the jelly and unfirmness, while French fries are cooked in mellow duck fat. Indeed, schmaltz is everywhere apparent, a paragon of alt-fat. For entrees, if you make it that far, go for the short ribs or chicken for two. The dining room at Kutsher's Tribeca is Danish Moderne, and the funny cocktail list will make you feel like you're steeling booze from your parents' alcohol cabinet.
Tips from foursquare
Part of the resurgence of Jewish food around the country. Here the latkes have caviar on top, the oily roe and sour cream the perfect foil for the crunchy potato cakes. More: http://tandl.me/S69icN
KT's got delicious potato & leek knishes with house-cured pastrami & Emmentaler, bringing the tastes of the Catskills resort of the same name down to TriBeCa.
Gussied up Jewish with fine house-cured pastrami and revamped matzo ball soup that includes farmers' market veggies. Winner of Critics' Choice of Best of NYC, Best Catskillian!
Latkes, latkes, latkes. That's all I have to say.
You thought nobody could beat your grandmother's matzo ball soup, right? Wrong. Be prepared to lick your bowl clean.
