New Brooklyn Steakhouse, Bison and Bourbon, Is Set to Revolutionize the Kosher Restaurant Scene

Brooklyn NY - The new age of kosher restaurants is no longer about décor in a storefront location. The soon to be opened Bison and Bourbon is an example of just how much the kosher restaurant scene has changed. For Andrea Luca Rossi, General Manager, uniting the hospitality staff with the culinary team at the back of house is the ultimate key to a restaurant’s success. Located in the industrial-turned-hip Brooklyn neighborhood of Gowanus, the new kosher steakhouse is all about providing a five-star, high-end cuisine in an urban environment. The new establishment provides a dining experience unique to the kosher restaurant scene, featuring a “European-inspired” outdoor seating area, and a rustic, red-brick interior complete with a fully outfitted bar. The second floor features an overhanging balcony that the Crown Heights owners are hoping will be used for private parties and celebrations.

Executive Chef of “Hell’s Kitchen” fame, Cindy Stanimirov, has worked with Rossi previously and he can’t sing her praises enough. At a recent menu sampling event, Chef Cindy dished up delights such as Bourbon Pulled Beef Flatbread with Red Onion, Cilantro & Bourbon BBQ Glaze and Cast Iron Chicken Breast with a Celery Root Purée & Mache Radish Salad, which were all met with rave reviews. Also served were specially crafted cocktails such as their special whiskey, coffee and orange ginger honey mix, aptly named The Bison. “All our cocktails, as well as our dishes are prepared with the most natural, freshest ingredients,” says Rossi, a professionally trained chef. “In fact, we have a green house on the roof of our kitchen where we will grow a selection of herbs including basil, oregano, dill, and tarragon, so we can really bring the outside in. We are really looking forward to setting a new standard in kosher cuisine.”
