Keys were handed over to the owners of what will be a new kosher restaurant on Sixth Street in San Francisco, a half-block from the kosher bakery Frena.
Rabbi Yosef Langer reported that the casual restaurant, located at the corner of Howard Street, will have falafel, shwarma and other grilled kosher meats.
“It’s very exciting to have a Jewish thoroughfare in the making,” said Langer, including his nearby SoMa Shul in the mix. “It’s important for the city, the Jewish community and civic community at large.”
The owners are Arik Sharabi and Roni Rotholz, investors in previous food ventures, according to Langer. He said he hoped the new restaurant would be open within the next six months.
