Boston’s Best Kosher Restaurants

Bagelsaurus, Exodus, Mamaleh’s and more: Bagel shops and Jewish-style delis are making a comeback. (Don’t believe me? I wrote an article about it!)

But, you ask, what about straight-up kosher spots? Here’s a list of Boston destinations. (I stuck to the immediate Boston area for conciseness, but feel free to recommend other places farther afield.) Did I miss anywhere? Is there a hidden gem you love? Tell me!

The Butcherie

OK, not a restaurant per se, but this kosher grocery runs a brisk to-go and catering business, and it’s a lifesaver for kosher wine. Need an elegantly designed smoked fish platter that would put any Pinterest curator to shame? Behold: This is your place.

Menu curiosity: An admirable beef jerky collection.

Café Eilat

Kosher pizza and sushi? Your wishes can come true in Brookline! This is a prime dining destination for the truly indecisive: There’s also fish and chips, jambalaya, burritos, quesadillas and nachos.

Menu curiosity: “Snake rolls” topped with barbecue sauce.

Jerusalem Pita & Grill

A nice Coolidge Corner option for the healthy diner, with an array of veggies (Moroccan carrots, Jerusalem eggplant), dips like baba ghanoush, shish kabobs and fluffy falafel.

Menu curiosity: If veggies don’t appeal, well, you can always order Buffalo wings.

Kupel’s Bakery

Nicely chewy bagels, egg salad, smoked salmon and sandwiches, each named after a Boston T stop, plus challah. In Brookline again, of course.

Menu curiosity: Green olive cream cheese on a jalapeño bagel. Don’t be scared.

Pure Cold Press

From Haim Cohen and family, the same folks who brought you Rami’s down the block, this clean-and-pristine Coolidge Corner juice bar calls to mind a college cafeteria, only with gourmet food and a bohemian vibe. The options are many: Smoked tempeh “TLT”? Grilled tofu awash in peanut sauce? Enough cold-pressed juices to put any detox fiend to shame? It’s all here.

Menu curiosity: “The Hulk” juice, made with kale, ginger and lemon. Grr!



Courtesy Rami’s

Your Coolidge Corner go-to for pitas of every persuasion, stuffed with falafel, grilled chicken or shawarma, with a side of hummus and baba ghanoush, plus some tongue-tingling hot sauce. An easy lunch option.

Menu curiosity: An expansive kids’ menu for well under $5.

Taam China

Your friendly Brookline staple for kosher Chinese. There’s a huge medley of veal and the usual array of teriyaki, dumplings, Kung Pao chicken and other recognizable dishes. Prices are reasonable, and it’s kid-tested and approved.

Menu curiosity: If you’re really tame, order the French fries.

Vittorio’s Grill

This Coolidge Corner newcomer touts a handsome kosher, grass-fed beef burger. They also lay claim to “mind-blowing” subs and onion rings.

Menu curiosity: Get your burger topped with up to 16 dressings (pesto, Thousand Island, a wealth of hot sauces).

The Boston area has one of the most vibrant Jewish communities in the United States, and its smorgasbord of Jewish food options reflects the city’s dynamism. From the neighborhoods of Boston proper to the nearby hubs of “Camberville,” Brookline, Newton, and beyond, the Bostonian Jewish food scene is vast, covering the many areas where Jews have settled in and around the city.

Highlights include classic Jewish delis, beloved bakeries, and serious falafel spots that have been feeding Boston residents for decades. But you can’t miss the innovators, like the new wave of bagel bakeries and delis that are introducing cocktail programs and Middle Eastern flavors to otherwise standard Eastern European Jewish menus. Heck, where else can you get a slivovitz cocktail with your pastrami sandwich?

Be sure to take advantage of the many ways Boston offers visitors and residents alike to learn from experts and get hands-on in the kitchen, from cooking classes and workshops to community gardens. And for the serious cooks out there, fill your grocery basket at any number of lively and exotic markets dotted around the city.
So, welcome to Boston, where you can’t help but leave with a head full of history and a belly full of Jewish eats.


On any given Sunday in Boston, you’ll want to grab a bagel and a coffee at one of the classic spots, like Katz Bagel Bakery in Chelsea, owned and operated by the Katz family since 1938. Founder Harry Katz is reportedly the first person to sell pizza bagels, which you can still buy at Katz today. Rosenfeld’s Bagels has been a Newton favorite for over 40 years. In addition to fresh bagels, it also bakes fresh challah and babka, and it’s kosher-certified. Kupel’s in Brookline, which is also kosher-certified, is another no frills spot for quality bagels made fresh daily. And Bagels’ Best Bakery Cafe is deeply beloved by Needham locals. Check out the creative array of schmears.

In 2013, Bagelsaurus opened, ushering in a new wave of bagel craftsmanship in Boston. Bagelsaurus takes bagels seriously, slow fermenting sourdough culture to form a chewy, flavorful bagel with just enough crust. Owner Mary Ting Hyatt is particularly known for her less than traditional sea salt bagel with honey-rosemary cream cheese. Exodus Bagels began as a pop-up in 2015 and opened a shop in Jamaica Plain early in 2018 following a successful crowdfunding campaign. Exodus is known for numbering each batch of bagels it makes (they’re on Batch 611 at the time of writing this) and for its multi-layered bagel sandwiches like the Bubby, a sandwich of chopped liver, dill, and horseradish with roasted beets and greens. A bit west of the city is The Bagel Place, a new spot that hails from Vermont and apparently imports its bagel-boiling water from the Green Mountain State.

If you love a good Jewish pastry (and who doesn’t?) stop in for a nosh and some Hebrew lessons at Galit’s Treats, an Israeli-owned and family-focused bakery specializing in challah, bourekas, and lots of vegan and gluten-free options. Or check out Quicksilver Baking Co., a new addition to the scene that’s all about quality rugelach. Try the savory olive tapenade flavor or the more classic raspberry and walnut. You can pre-order for pick up every Tuesday at the Newton Center Farmers Market. Cheryl Ann’s challah and babka are some of Brookline’s favorites and have been since 1985. The bakery is kosher-certified and family-owned. And then there’s Blacker’s Bakeshop, also kosher-certified (as well as pareve and nut-free) and owned by a husband and wife team, Richard and Karen Blacker, who make all the Ashkenazi Jewish classic breads and desserts by hand.

Pro-tip: If you’re in nearby Sharon, MA, consider ordering any number of wacky flavored challahs from challah guru Mandylicious Challahs. She takes orders online, uses only kosher ingredients, and makes flavors like sticky bun challah and pulled brisket challah. Her Instagram says it all. You can also try your hand at making Mandylicious’ red velvet cake challah recipe.

Boston is no slouch when it comes to deli. Michael’s Deli (previously located in Marblehead, where Jeffrey’s grandpa Joe once made his famous chicken salad and coleslaw), is a favorite in the Jewish hub of Brookline. It’s been open for 40 years, and the corned beef has been winning awards just as long. Owner Steve Peljovich comes from a Cuban Jewish family and brings that spice and fire to everything he does, especially his weekly rotation of “Krazy Knishes” like the guava challah bread pudding knish. Zaftig’s has two branches (in Brookline and Natick) where you can enjoy breakfast all day, including matzah brei or potato pancakes with all the works. A bonus: They give you bagel chips and dip when you take your seat! For brunch, get there early and be prepared to wait. Barry’s Village Deli in Newton has been opened since 1970 and features all the deli classics, including a special Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur menu. And though it isn’t Jewish, per se, Sam Lagrassa’s is a downtown Boston sandwich shop famous for giant corned beef reubens and even a pastrami caprese salad. A few T stops away, in the Boston Public Market, you’ll find Beantown Pastrami, a cozy counter that offers what some say is the best pastrami around.

Boston is muscling its way to the top of the list of US cities with serious deli street cred. The crew behind Mamaleh’s Deli in Cambridge brings a deep devotion to chopped liver and smoked meat and fish. Located just across the Charles River from Harvard, this exciting restaurant built an award-winning cocktail program in a bright, airy space that feels new and timeless all at once. You can’t go wrong with your order, but definitely try their matzah ball soup, the Mushroom Rachel (a vegetarian Reuben), a housemade soda (celery, dill pickle, beet, etc.) and their inventive cocktails. When Our Father’s Deli opened in 2017, it was an instant hit. The new deli brings together the Eastern European legacy of hand-cut pastrami, corned beef, and gribenes (fried chicken skins) with a sprinkling of Middle Eastern flavors, such as its za’atar salmon, as well as its lamb meatballs with yogurt and harissa. A bit further afield, out in Waltham, you’ll find the celebrated Moody’s Deli, where chef Josh Smith serves his signature Katz sandwich (pastrami, mustard, and swiss on rye) with a side of classic coleslaw and potato salad in an upscale setting. Moody’s famously cures all of its own meats and sausages in-house and has become a serious destination for cured and smoked meat aficionados.

Bostonians are completely in love with Inna’s Kitchen, located in the trendy Boston Public Market and now in a second location in Newton as well. Part of the charm of Inna’s Kitchen is that it is unabashedly, globally Jewish. They’re known for “shakalatkes” (a shakshuka and latke combo), as well as hot, flaky knishes, soups, and pot pies. The owners are a mother-son team, Inna and Alex Khitrik, who are originally from the former Soviet Union and who emphasize gluten-free and nut-free recipes in their cooking. As a bonus, their space in Newton is obtaining Shtiebel Eco-Kosher Certification and is completely gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free.

Israeli chefs are having a moment in the Boston area. With locations that bracket Beacon Street, Cafe Landwer opens early in the day for a well-brewed coffee and the famous Landwer’s Israeli style breakfast, featuring pita, feta, salad, eggs, and za’atar chickpeas. By night, locals love the shnitzel and the vegan shwarma. Bonapita, Israeli chef Ilan Barniv’s downtown spot, emphasizes healthy foods drawn from the Mediterranean diet with some of the top falafel in Boston. The restaurant has two locations, both featuring chickpea zucchini falafel and soft-serve frozen custard on the simple yet satisfying menu. Tatte Bakery and Cafe has 11 locations throughout the Boston area and features quality baked goods and a nice sprinkling of Israeli specials like shakshuka and spicy lamb kebabs, inspired by Israeli baker and founder, Tzurit Or. The Chubby Chickpea Truck can be found zipping around town and serving up laffa wraps filled with eggplant, chicken shwarma, and falafel. Chef Avi Shemtov, founder of the truck, just opened Simcha, a brick and mortar location in Sharon, MA. Another great mobile mouth-filler is ChikChak, which offers falafel, shwarma, hummus, and more. Rami’s, a tried-and-true, kosher-certified spot, claims to have the best falafel in town. However, the folks at Jerusalem Pita (another Israeli-owned spot) may beg to differ. Others are fiercely loyal to Jake’s Falafel Corner in Newton.

Pro-tip: Clover Food Lab has multiple locations around the city, serving up kosher-certified, global, vegetarian cuisine with a couple of Israeli-inspired dishes on the menu like sabich and chickpea fritters.

When you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and get cooking in your own kitchen (or just pick up some specialty foods to eat at home), Boston has a wide array of markets. For Ashkenazi comfort food and other provisions, visit The Butcherie in Brookline, a kosher grocery store with a variety of prepared foods to go, crunchy snacks, and frozen foods. If you’re an Israeli food enthusiast and love experimenting with Middle Eastern cuisine, Watertown, MA is home to some fabulous Armenian markets along Mt. Auburn Street that carry everything you’d need to whip up a Middle Eastern feast, from date syrup and rose water to specialty produce. Check out Arax, Massis Bakery, and Sevan Bakery. And for those who are interested in traditional Eastern European flavors, the four locations of the BaZaAr Supermarkets carry all of your Russian ingredient needs, such as caviar and buckwheat honey. Their slogan, “Royal Delicacies at Peasant Prices,” tells you everything you need to know.

There’s more to do than eat Jewish in Boston! Beantown Jewish Gardens offers you the chance to get hands-on and experience Jewish food from the roots, literally. Join the organization for programming at any of its gardens located at various Boston area synagogues and JCCs. The organization also plans the Boston Jewish Food Conference, which is held each spring, bringing together the community for a full day of learning about agriculture, food access, local history, and of course, noshing. The Boston Fermentation Festival is an annual event that takes place in August at the Boston Public Market and features tons of workshops about pickling and fermentation of all kinds. Boston Ferments, the organization behind the festival, also runs programs throughout the year, including a kraut mob (Google it) at the Boston Jewish Food Conference. The Jewish Arts Collaborative (JArts) hosts a regular kitchen exploration series of hands-on classes that tie together Boston’s Jewish neighborhoods and the Jewish foods that have been a part of their history. JArts also hosts a popular tasting event known as Beyond Bubbie’s Kitchen, which takes place each spring and features tastes from the best Jewish chefs in Boston and beyond. Kitchen Kibitz, a beloved Jewish food pop-up company, organizes sporadic collaborations with restaurants and chefs which offer fun, interactive opportunities to engage with (and eat!) the newest wave of Jewish food.

About Us

Larry Levine's Kosher Meats and Deli was founded nearly 40 years ago by Larry Levine on Central Avenue in Chelsea, Massachusetts. In 1986, Larry and his son Todd moved the business to Peabody, Massachusetts, where it is now located on Lowell Street. Levine's is the only kosher meat and deli business north of Boston and south of Montreal, Canada. Conveniently located near I-95 and Routes 1 and 128, customers flock to Levine's from throughout the Boston metropolitan area, from as far south as Connecticut and Rhode Island, and as far north as Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

Levine's provides the highest quality meats, kosher deli, prepared foods, smoked fishes, and cheeses. The store is well stocked with all kinds of kosher groceries, and the freezers contain scrumptious prepared foods ready for you to heat and eat in your own home. Levine's prepares meat or dairy platters for all occasions. Delivery is available, but many people enjoy coming in to Levine's personally to schmooze and see who they might meet there. Levine's also provides orders to kosher meat co-ops throughout the Boston area.

Fifteen years ago, Todd founded Catering by Tevya, expanding on the catering business started by Larry. Today Catering by Tevya provides elegant kosher catering for bar and bat mitzvahs, weddings, seders, shabbat dinners, graduation and confirmation parties, and all kinds of social functions.

Levine's founder, Larry Levine, along with his wife Mindy, can still be found kibbitizing at the store and offering friendly, helpful advice to customers new and old. Todd, who now owns Levine's, is always there to help with your kosher food needs. In fact, Todd is the 4th generation of his family to be in the kosher meat business. Todd's wife, Simone, and daughters Hillary and Allison, can often be spotted in the store helping provide service with a smile.

The motto of Levine's has always been, "We have it all!"
Come visit and see how Levine's can supply all your kosher needs.
