    By Rob Eshman

    August 22, 2012 | 2:17 pm

    More than Jews have kept delis, the deli has kept the Jews.

    Yes, that’s a direct ripoff of Abraham Joshua Heschel’s famous dictum about the Sabbath.

    I didn’t know Heschel, but I bet if I could have gotten him alone over a cup of cold beet borscht at Rattner’s, he would have...

  • From which seeps the essence of Jeff’s Gourmet

    By Louis Keene

    June 29, 2012 | 12:04 pm

    College is about learning how to fit in, or—if you’re talented enough—finding out you don’t have to. As someone who fails to make the latter group, I often find myself ordering black bean cheeseburgers and pattyless patty melts to keep up with friends who eat traif with aplomb. When...

    By Julia Bendis

    Yesterday was the last day of my children’s freedom, and incidentally the last day of my imprisonment.  As I counted down the dwindling hours of winter break, I was also counting down the hours till my head was going to stop throbbing and my voice would sound human again (oppose to a...

  • Rack ‘em up

    November 18, 2011 | 4:04 pm

    A mural of shadowy black silhouettes covers the wall with just one splash of color: a solitary red man. As the jazz-era-style mural stretches along the length of the restaurant, it follows the red man as he meets a lone red woman, and they end up sharing a table ... and a drink. The...

    The Rabbi of Chelm was teaching a class,

    "Rabbi," a student asked. "Why is the sea so salty?"

  • Kosher Stylin’

    By Jessica Ravitz

    June 2, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    If we are what we eat, then at this moment I'm a big fat Gordo's burrito with extra cheese. But I'm a veggie burrito because for the past several years, I've been cultivating my own brand of kosher. I like to call myself "kosher style."
