Shabbat Dinner at the NYC Wine and Food Festival

I doubt this is kosher, but it looks very appetizing.

      Before I sent it, I was being thrown off my computer for a network reset, so I didn't look that hard. I find it interesting how it is phrased: " Please note: dietary restrictions will strictly NOT be followed." Will they try their hardest to avoid kashrut rules (gefilte shellfish?)

      Regardless, I'm sure it'd be a delicious experience for those interested.

        Gotta keep the network people happy and get off when they say too:)

          The menu includes sturgeon, the kosher-ness of which is controversial, but it otherwise seems to avoid non-kosher species. Not sure what 'custard cookies' are, or if they're unavoidably dairy.

            I think they meant to say "Not strictly be followed." The placement of the NOT changes the meaning of the sentence, and that's where it gets funny. It's all about emphasis.

              Yeah, Looks to me like they were trying to be funny, and succeeded.

                My husband has told me that on the train, they sometimes mistakenly announce: "All doors will not open," instead of "Not all doors will open." It's good it's a mistake; otherwise the passengers would be trapped! Grammar does actually make a difference sometimes.
