The Jewish Museum London has relaunched its café (above), making it the first new kosher café to have opened in London since Deli West One. Traditional Jewish specialities, made on the premises, cover both Ashkenazi (East European) dishes such as fish balls to Sephardic (North African/Middle Eastern) dishes, the more familiar houmous and falafel wraps. What with Hanukkah starting today, this a perfect time to visit the café, or indeed the Jewish Museum, with family or friends. The café is open Sunday-Thursdays daytime only (10am-4.30pm). Although we don’t hold the view that Jewish food is the latest trend, we do make that four new, Jewish-oriented eateries in a matter of weeks – and that’s not even counting The Delaunay, which might seem to be populated with the North London Jewish Social Club most evenings, but serves seafood and pork.
