The food was EXCELLENT! My husband and I had never been to Kutsher's before and wanted to try it. We found a Groupon and it was the perfect opportunity. So we went for brunch. The restaurant manager on Sunday morning, August 10th, (I wish I'd gotten her name) would not honor our groupon. We were supposed to receive two soups, one appetizer, two entrees & two drinks each for the $69 Groupon. She told us that we purchased a dinner Groupon and it really was not to be used for brunch, but she would be nice and honor it, but she would have to charge us extra for the soup (which we had already eaten by this time). We agreed and apologized for our error with the whole brunch/dinner thing it was not stated on the groupon. We got the check, not only did she charge us $21.00 for the soup, she charged us $12.00 for each of 4 drinks which were to be included (not to mention that those drinks are normally $9). All she did for us was put our $69.00 toward a bill of $137.00. If we had known she was going to do that, we would have ordered much differently. We would not have had drinks, we would not have ordered soup. We were completely ripped off and when we tried to explain that these things were included in the Groupon, she told us they were not. Not wanting to make a scene, we left. We were so angry, we will never go back to Kutsher's again. I intend to tell everyone that I know how unfortunate our experience was there. I hope that someone who works for Groupon will read this.
Who knew Jewish Food Could be So Good?

Who knew, and this is coming from a Christian girl with a Jewish husband! My husband and I love this place. Great neighborhood vibe (we live in Tribeca,) great drinks and food (a few dishes are average but many quite delicious, I'll get into this,) fast service, and you feel like you are supporting a family run operation....you kind of are. We met the owner the first time we came in, he greeted us warmly and now comes by to say hi every time we've been back. Our favorite dishes are the Borscht soup, the trout, organic salmon and brussels sprouts. This place is low key enough for a casual dinner, or perfect for a double date night out with friends.
Oy! The Noise!

Latkes are okay, not the best I ever had, but the three-caviar toppings definitely enhanced the dish. Duck schmaltz fries a limp disappointment. What made the night, though, was the grilled Rumanian skirt steak. No finer or more flavorful piece of meat has crossed my lips since the closing of Moskowitz & Lupowitz. But the owners desperately need to put in some soundproofing. The din is so loud that you can't hear what your companion is saying. If it's JDate central, this might be deliberate.

I checked out Kutsher's after hearing about all of the buzz and it exceeded all of my expectations. The house made pastrami is the best in NYC and the roast chicken and romanian skirt steak are awesome. Come with friends so you can sample the menu. The house made cocktails and sodas are much better than they need to be. Service was very friendly and attentive.
Jewish food with a modern twist
By lmichelle23 on 2/23/2012
A beautiful atmosphere with high ceilings and warm color hues, Kutcher's is certainly not your average Jewish deli. Very creative menu that combines Eastern European or Mediterranean ingredients in unusual ways---falafel-encrusted salmon, "borscht" salad with goat cheese. Unfortunately, not all of it as good as it sounds on paper. Further, the price-per-portion left me feeling like I wanted more food. The service has improved over the short period the restaurant has been open. I went once during one of its first weeks and again last night. The waiters were accommodating and very friendly. The borscht salad was tiny and there were hardly any beets..borscht salad should have tons of beets. Highlights: the brussels sprouts were delicious as were the other sides. Overall, a good place to have in the neighborhood.
