If you walked into this dim steakhouse not realizing it was kosher, you probably wouldn’t notice the lack of milk products. That’s because Park East Grill’s executive chef, Gerry Rozelle, brings deft touches to the menu with traditional twentieth-century Jewish staples and kosher meats. Wild mushroom blintzes are the only dish that actually fuse the Jewish and Asian culinary worlds, but because the restaurant is an offshoot of Park East Kosher Butchers and Fine Foods—a mainstay UES butcher that delivers throughout the country—meats outshine all else. Herb-roasted hen, wild salmon teriyaki, hanger steak, lamb chops, and a T-bone for two are all good choices. A too-big-to-finish twelve-ounce burger consists of ground prime rib done exactly to order and literally bleeding freshness. Sliced fillet steak is fork-tender and accompanied by vegetables soaked in the steak’s juices, and horseradish-spiked mashed potatoes. The only downside is the restaurant’s slightly gloomy interior, with gray brick walls, and muted autumnal colors in the banquettes, menus, and several paintings. Style aside, Park East Grill delivers top-notch kosher beef that warrants a trip.

Shabbat Dinner

On Friday nights, four-course, prepaid Shabbat dinners are available; hours change based on sundown. Every meal purchased from Sunday through Thursday scores you a free ticket to the famous Comic Strip Live, down the block.
