Lat­tes are off the menu

The Jewish Chronicle - - CommunityNews -

CHIT CHAT, the Gold­ers Green, North-West Lon­don restau­rant where Is­raelis meet over a burger and a latte, is to be­come kosher, su­per­vised by the Sephardi Kashrut Author­ity, writes Nathan Jeffay.

Since it opened 10 years ago, it has proved a pop­u­lar hang­out for the area’s He­brew-speak­ing pop­u­la­tion, largely be­cause it opens on Shab­bat and caters to the Is­raelis who want kosher meat and a dairy dessert, said owner Stepha- nie Ben-Yair. “We were serv­ing kosher meat but also milk. We are closed for the changeover. When we re­open there will be meaty and parev items only.”

The Chit Chat Kosher Diner, as it will be called, will close on Shab­bat, but as Ms Ben-Yair ex­plained, with the in­creas­ingly Ortho­dox lo­cal de­mo­graphic, this should not harm busi­ness. She said the menu will have fewer Is­raeli dishes and more Amer­i­can fare, with burg­ers, steaks and salt beef.
