So I am trying to plan a birthday for my friend who is kosher, loves opera and celebrates all cultures. We are going to the opera on Thursday, but then wanted to go somewhere we can also celebrate chinese new year...anyone know of any kosher chinese places that are not painfully far from the Met?

    The closest one I know of is Estihana on 79th, but I don't think the food is very good. (It's more of a pan Asian restaurant than a Chinese restaurant.) You might want to cross post on the kosher board for additional suggestions.

    I don't eat at kosher restaurants all that often, but in my experience, the best ones are either Middle Eastern or south Indian.

      Eden Wok is on 34th St., b/t Madison & Park. Not exactly close to the Met, but it is Glatt kosher. If you are willing to cab it, there is the additional question of whether they stay open late enough so that you can go there after the opera.

      If you have not already done so, you might want to post on the kosher board with specific reference to Manhattan.

      Edited to add: I see that while I was typing, cimui had the same idea about cross-posting on the kosher board.

        I haven't eaten there, but I walked by this place (inside the Sony Atrium) the other day and it looked nice enough...
