Jezebel - An Amazing Dining Experience

Thursday, November 15, 2012

The week before that nasty hurricane hit us, when life was semi-normal, my husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Jezebel, an exciting new kosher venue in SoHo. Now, to me,  just saying the words "kosher venue in SoHo" gives me the tingles...let me explain. I've always been one to love the energy of New York City. It is truly one of the most resilient cities in the world, and I enjoy exploring its beautifully designed spaces for inspiration.

About a year ago, my designer friend and I we're on one of our 'tours' checking out some hotel lobbies, retail spaces and dining venues in lower Manhattan when we both decided that it was a shame that there were no kosher places that we could fully experience in the hip neighborhoods south of midtown.

Well, I guess Henry Stimler and Menachem Senderowicz owners of Jezebel, had been feeling the same frustration, because just a few months later they opened the doors to their super chic venue right in the heart of SoHo. Jezebel is so much more than just about the food; it offers a feast for all of the senses, an experience that will awaken your appetite in every 'sense' of the word.
The first thing I noticed when I walked into Jezebel was the awesome vibe. The lighting and music were warm and inviting and the decor was visually inspiring. Everything from the the art on the walls to the light fixtures (made of real shofars) on the ceiling was chosen with painstaking detail, to bring you the most enjoyable and relaxing experience. It was part art gallery, part lounge and part restaurant...all joined together in a most provocative way, and perfect for a venue of its caliber in the heart of SoHo.
The Lounge

The Custom Shofar Chandelier
We were greeted by a most cordial (and beautiful) hostess who showed us to our table, and that was only the beginning of the impeccable service we received. I noticed there was a high ratio of staff to diners and we never had to wait too long to get exactly what we needed. The wine, brought to us by Jezebel's own in house Rabbi sommelier, was the perfect beginning for our meal. The menu, although limited, was gourmet and easy to order from. The appetizers, I found, were a bit small in portion, but I was thankful afterward when my steak came and I actually still had an appetite (after all, the point of an appetizer is to whet your appetite, not fill you up). We ordered our meat medium rare and it came out perfectly medium rare...and it was divine.  Dessert was decadent, and we even got an extra one thrown in due to a small wait (which I didn't even notice).

We left feeling giddy with satisfaction...we had a great time and really enjoyed our dinner at Jezebel. If you're looking for the ultimate kosher dining experience that will satisfy all of your senses you must visit Jezebel!
