a nyc kosher blog

i found this blog googling around;
http://www.thanksaglatt.com/
not sure if there are better ones,
but i found their weekly updates
worth a revisit. obviously the
standard of kosher discussed
varies widely, so due diligence.

        1. Koshertopia is a disaster. When the site was Kosher-NY and under the old ownership it was easy to use and always up to date. The new owners have never been able to keep the site updated. And then they decided to expand coverage outside of Manhattan so there is now even more information they don't keep up to date. Finally the new site design makes finding places even harder. And worst of all, there is no more google map. The site is a great example of how an ownership change can kill a product.

            I can't say I disagree. Kosher-NY was really good and had a real simple design. Koshertopia has a good blog with decent updates, but above that, well, let's just say I actually don't check them for new restaurant info anymore.

            It's a real bummer.

              I just took a look at it for the first time. I'm unimpressed with the immature writing; reminds me of the way I used to write when I wrote for my HS paper (not to mention the many misspellings and grammatical errors).

              1. re: queenscook

                It's not so much the writing style - it's the fact that there are updates :) But I agree; as a blogger myself, good writing is everything.

                1. re: queenscook

                  are you talking about Thanks a Glatt or Koshertopia in regards to the writing?

                The map was the major reason I used kosher-ny, and I don't understand why koshertopia doesn't put one up also. It should be at most one afternoon's work, given that they already have all of the relevant addresses in their system. Fortunately, Shamash now has a map version; it's not quite as easy to use as the old kosher-ny one, but it'll do.
