I got to eat in a few new ones.
The night I landed I met up with my sister-in-law and family who hosted me, and they took me to a new dairy place, perfect for the culinary restrictions of the "nine days."
A week later, I insisted on treating my hosts to a restaurant meal of their choice, and they chose Murray's on First Avenue and 15th Street, if I remember the address correctly.
It was after Tisha B'Av, so we could have meat, which we did. I had a very low carb meal, meat and lamb burgers sans roll, plus lots of grilled vegetables and salad.
My next culinary adventure was L'Bella Restaurant on Main Street in Flushing, Queens, not far from JFK Airport. That's because it was the meal before the flight home .
Kosher eating in New York doesn't take too much effort.
More and more restaurants offer very Israeli-style salads which is great for Israelis like myself.
