Celebrate Chanukah at Reserve Cut, the kosher steakhouse located in the heart of the financial district. This modern restaurant, perched on the second floor of the Setai Hotel, sources its meat from the family butcher shop, Prime Cut. Pair your steak dinner with a wine from Israel or Australia or order one of their tasty side dishes like the spicy tater tots or the tamari glazed green beans with Thai roasted garlic. Splurge on one of their signature RC sushi rolls or try one of their varieties of sashimi. Top off your holiday meal with the chocolate cremeux, beignets, or the peanut butter crunch bar (a la mode, of course).

Brooklyn, NY

Stop into Brooklyn’s Mason & Mug in Prospect Heights and enjoy a farm-to-table lunch or dinner. Start your meal out with a glass of kosher wine or check out their grocery section where you can find everything from boutique mustard to Shabbat tea lights. This casual spot is perfect for the whole family with its affordable prices and fun atmosphere (look out for all the mason jars filled with pickles along the wall). The menu doesn’t disappoint either with cheese and smoked fish boards and exotic dishes like the Banh Mi sandwich and deviled kale salad with miso-horseradish sauce.
