Broadway Cafe has closed, but the end of the venerable Toco Hills dairy restaurant does not mean Jewish Atlanta will be lacking a kosher option there for long.
Businessman Scott Italiaander, a part of the Toco Hills Orthodox community who was no stranger to Broadway, announced on Facebook that he and partners Julie Meni, an executive chef, and Rose Lurie, a physician and businesswoman, bought the assets and lease of the cafe and plan to open a new kosher dairy restaurant at the intersection of LaVista and Briarcliff roads as soon as the third week of July.
“We intend to create the finest dining experience in the Jewish community; indeed in any community,” Italiaander wrote. “The new restaurant will be a re-designed, comfortable and vibrant meeting place, with food and prices that will appeal to you and your families.”
Jewish Atlanta also has a new kosher dining option in Chamblee, Cafe Bello.
In other Jewish dining news, The Canteen, the long-awaited “micro food hall” combining stalls for TGM Bagel, Fred’s Meat & Bread and Yalla with Square Bar — all under the ownership of the General Muir team of Todd Ginsberg, Shelley Sweet, and Jennifer and Ben Johnson — opened Monday, June 12, at 75 Fifth St. in Midtown.
The Canteen is not kosher, but Jewish Atlanta Favorites voters attest to the quality of Ginsberg’s food.
