Kosher restaurants, meant primarily for a Jewish clientele, can be found all over the world, especially in locations with a high Jewish population, such as New York City. Many of these restaurants serve traditional Jewish cuisine, while others serve Kosher ethnic cuisine such as Chinese food. These menus collected by Claire Cohen contain a small example of the many types of restaurants where traditional and ethnic foods are created with Kosher principles in mind.
