ANCOUVER – Maple Grill, the West Coast Kosher Kitchen, has been open for business since Feb. 10 serving BC Kosher( meat and veggie) lunch and dinners every day of the week.
The menu includes yam wedges, Ima’s Hummus, Moroccan and ocean burgers, Street Wings, Mezurashii Ahi tuna, lamb chops, West Coast Quesadilla, and rib eye steak. There is also a varied selection of soups and salads, and of course a nice selection of parve deserts (like chocolate mousse, ice cream, crisps and strudels).
The price range for a kosher sit-down meal at Maple Grill is anywhere between $9.75 for a soup and salad, and $32 for a steak platter.
“We chose the name Maple Grill because it sounds neutral, so you can’t draw a conclusion by the name alone,” said Godeghesi.
Maple Grill is at 1967 West Broadway (the Kollel Building, at the corner of Maple, hence the eatery’s name).
It is open from Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday from 11 a.m. to sundown, and Saturday from sundown to midnight.

A sign in the window next door to Maccabee’s Deli at 1150 Polk Blvd. in Des Moines indicates a restaurant and catering service are coming soon. Rabbi Yossi Jacobson, director of the Judaic Resource Center that owns Maccabee’s, said the restaurant should be ready for business in about four to six months. The restaurant and catering will offer kosher, traditional Jewish foods. Those who prefer non-dairy and vegetarian foods will find many menu items amenable to their diets.
Maccabee’s Deli is a kosher deli near the corner of University Avenue. It has been in operation almost 17 years and is open for lunch Sundays and Tuesdays through Fridays. The addition of the restaurant means hours will be expanded, as the restaurant will serve a full dinner and Sunday morning breakfast which will include lox and bagels, among other options. Free Internet service will be available, plus the selection of foods and wines in the grocery section will be expanded.

The corner of Hamilton Town Center on Gunbarrel Road in East Brainerd just got a little sweeter with the opening of Abraham’s Kosher and Parve Bakery.
The new business gives the area a place to find pastries that are all kosher and dairy free.
Edith Martinez and husband, Eloy, opened the bakery in early February. They had once owned a kosher bakery in Florida.
The Martinezes pride themselves in the quality and prices of their baked goods, with big muffins selling at 55 cents, large cupcakes 75 cents and large cakes with a choice of icings and fillings going for $14.99. All are made from scratch.
Rabbi Meir Goldstein of B’nai Zion Congregation certified the bakery as kosher and said that though there are other bakeries in town preparing kosher foods with a couple of parve (dairy free) offerings, “What’s unique about Abraham’s is that everything that’s baked there is considered parve. And this is the only bakery doing it.”

American Airlines: On flights of two hours or longer, of the snacks offered, the Chocolate Chunk cookie (which is OU-Dairy) and 3 Musketeers candy bar are kosher certified. American provides kosher meals to first and business class passengers on transcontinental flights.

JetBlue Airways: Most of their complimentary snacks offered in-flight are kosher.

Southwest Airlines: The airline offers kosher peanuts and pretzels on its flights, and in mid-March will begin offering Ritz cheese crackers, which also are OU Kosher certified.
United Airlines: Some of their 'Buy on Board' snacks are kosher. They plan to ask their vendors to submit kosher certified products for inclusion in their refreshed snackboxes later this year.
US Airways: Within the In-Flight Café Snack Box they offer five items, four which are kosher (mint chip cookies, strawberry fruit bar, fruit and nut mix, and garlic and rosemary all natural wisecrackers ).
Read the complete article on ou.org.
Kosher Traveler Adds: Travelers should also note that depending on the airline there may be a charge for some or all of the snacks. In addition at both JFK and LaGuardia, the Cibo shops carry packaged parve sandwiches certified by the Star-K.

The drought is over reports Chicago's abc7:
...it's no surprise that up until recently, the only good kosher options were in West Rogers Park or Skokie. But now, kosher diners have two new options downtown, one of which is partnering with a well-known celebrity chef.
It's lunch hour at the brand new Spertus Institute for Jewish Studies in the South Loop, but unlike other options in the area, everything here is completely kosher. The result of a unique partnership with Wolfgang Puck....
...."The twist in this building is its under rabbinical supervision with the Chicago Rabbinical Council, but the food is the same bright, natural flavors that the chef is known for," Frankel said.
Anything from a grilled steak sandwich, to mini potato latkes; even a moist, spiced pumpkin sponge cake with a cranberry-apricot jelly. She says it will come as a relief to kosher eaters who previously had to bring their own lunch everyday...
...Over in Greektown, the Crowne Plaza Hotel has a sprawling restaurant -- Dine -- but within that restaurant, a gourmet kosher lunch-only option has been carved out. It's called the Metro Klub, and offers a fairly wide range of kosher options such as grilled chicken with vegetables, a buffalo chicken sandwich, even a vegan-friendly turtle cheesecake....
....Another bonus at Metro Klub is the free valet parking. Both restaurants are fleishig, which means they offer meat, but no dairy products.

Apracticing Catholic who attends church each Sunday, Mary Ellen Newbury hardly seems a sure bet to know the ins and outs of keeping a kosher diet....
The bed-and-breakfast has separate ovens and microwaves for warming up meat and dairy dishes, so milk and meat don't mix, and food brought into the house from the outside requires the approval of the Orthodox rabbi at nearby Touro Synagogue. Hot food that guests plan to eat over the weekend must be placed in the oven before sundown on Friday since traditional Judaism prohibits the use of electricity on the Sabbath...Click here for the The Admiral Weaver Inn's website.

In a survey of some of the largest hotels in the country, KosherToday found that virtually all of the hotels had some program in place to supply the glatt kosher meals. Most appeared anxious to court the kosher traveler. The Palmer House Hilton said that with advanced notice, they can prepare a kosher meal from one of the frozen meals they stock. The airline type meals can be heated while sealed and delivered to the room. New York's Waldorf Astoria and Ritz Carlton Central Park order in any food that guests want. If guests specify the restaurant and the food they want, both hotels said that they would gladly make the arrangements. The Four Seasons orders its meals from Levana's
Restaurant on Manhattan's West Side. Boston's Seaport Hotel orders its kosher meals from Catering by Andrew. The Hyatt Harborside at Boston's Logan International Airport orders food from local kosher restaurants. In Los Angeles, the Beverly Hilton gets its meals from Kosher on Wheels from California Kosher Catering. Most of the hotels were anxious to accommodate kosher travelers, but strongly urge that arrangements be made well in advance.

Rabbi Ari Sytner certified the inn as Glatt kosher, under the "Palmetto K" symbol, which he created. Rabbi Sytner is the head rabbi of Charleston's Orthodox synagogue, Congregation Brith Sholom Beth Israel (BSBI to the locals), the oldest Orthodox Jewish synagogue in the Southern United States. Rabbi Sytner says he constantly is working with the Charleston community to obtain kosher certification. The Broad Street Guest House has guest suites with sunlit sitting rooms in the main house, each with luxurious, comfortable furnishings. Additionally, The Guest House Suite is located behind the main house and has easy access to the spacious outdoor piazza. All suites have private baths and kosher kitchenettes, and the upper-level suites are accessible by stairs or an elevator. The Broad Street Guest House is within walking distance of two Charleston synagogues, enabling guests to attend religious services, which is attractive for visiting Orthodox Jews who do not drive cars during the Sabbath."

The Berkshires offers beautiful country for hiking, walking, biking, fishing, boating, and golf (plus skating and skiing in the winter). It is also one of the most art & culture saturated areas of the country, with numerous theatre, music, dance, opera and museums, along with more ceramic, glass, craft and antique shops in all price categories than one could visit in a lifetime. There are many activities for children, both cultural and recreational. In addition to many specialty shops featuring locally produced items, there are more conventional shopping centers and malls, including several outlet malls with major bargains.
There are many options for the kosher traveler. Accommodations range from motels to resorts, plus many fine inns and B&Bs. However, we chose to stay at the Ponds at Foxhollow. The Ponds offers 1 bedroom condos that sleep up to 4 and 2 bedrooms sleeping up to 8, with deck and fireplace and a full electric kitchen in each unit. It is located right on Route 7 near Lenox. When we arrived, the oven was still warm from the self clean cycle--ready to use as kosher! There is no eruv, but the rooms and clubhouse were spacious and we were able to enjoy a peaceful and active Shabbat. Ponds units rent by the weekend, or week (Fri-Fri) or day during off season.
The nearby Super Stop and Shop on Dan Fox Drive stocks fresh chicken and glatt beef, along with a large selection of cheese, frozen prepared foods and everything you could possibly need to cook or reheat meals--no need to shlep food with you. Price Chopper also has a good selection of foods. The Berkshires do not have an orthodox community, although a Chabad House just opened in Pittsfield.
