Well, not all Jewish people observe the kosher rules.

About a year ago I went to dinner with four Jewish people.  Since I am not expert on kosher rules, I ordered the same food as my Jewish buddy, so as to not offend anyone.  Two of the guests were foreigners and did not speak English real well, so my buddy ordered for them too.

When they brought out the appetizers (shrimp cocktail, roasted shrimp, and fried calimari) the two foreigners (Orthodox Jewish at that!) got up and walked out on us because the food was not kosher.

I later learned that if you want to eat kosher, an Italian restaurants is probably not going to be a good idea.  ;D

Even so, this is a bad idea.  The fact that this is in New York City is worse, what kind of a vacuum are these guys living in?  The next quote from the owners will probably  be "some of best friends are..."

My dad sent me a link to this story. I was going to post it but it seems someone has beaten me to the punch.  ;)  I can't say that my family is kosher. I remember hearing stories about either my grandfather or great-grandfather (or both) who was supposed to be orthodox, every Sunday going to a Chinese restaurant and order sweet & sour pork.  :o :o  A few years ago, we took my grandmother out for lunch. She lives in a Jewish retirement community and yes, she ordered a ham sandwich. I made a comment to her about that. She said that many of the people in the community often get treife (non-kosher) because they get tired of eating kosher ALL THE TIME!!


This funniest thing happened a few years ago (and I know I told this story before). I was out in Tulsa visiting my sister and it was during Passover. The community where my grandmother lives, was having a sader dinner and most of my family who lives there-plus me & my dad who was also visiting, joined. For those of you are not familiar with the sader-it starts off with this ritual, half way through, you eat dinner, and then finish the ceremony. When it came time for dinner, my sister said, "So, what is dinner? Pork?" Oh man, I almost died. I thought she knew more about our Jewish heritage than that. Dad set her straight.

I agree, I know not every Jewish person is kosher but I would think a store would want to air on the side of caution...after all its probably more offensive to offer ham than to not. I would think...

Even someone not of the faith understands what a faux pas that was!
