New Kosher restaurant to open at Bevis Marks synagogue

Zest, which has operated the restaurant at the JW3 community centre since 2013, said its new venture will open on Tuesday.

    A daytime “pop-up meaty restaurant” will open next week within the historic Bevis Marks synagogue in the City of London.

    Zest, which has operated the restaurant at the JW3 community centre since 2013, said its new venture will open on Tuesday.

    Open Monday to Thursday from 11 until three, it will be signing up to the Deliveroo takeaway service, meaning that City workers can order deliveries to their offices.

    Raymond Simonson, the JW3 chief executive, announced the opening on social media today, describing it as “big news for kosher keepers who live or work in the City of London.

    “It's also Zest's first meaty restaurant, following up on the huge success of our meaty pop-up Syrian cafe last year.”

    There has never been a wide variety of kosher restaurants in the City.

    In 2003, Bevis Marks: The Restaurant opened on the synagogue’s premises, operating for almost a decade before moving a few streets away in 2012. In 2013, another restaurant opened at the shul – Restaurant 1701 (a reference to the founding year of Bevis Marks). However, despite moving out of the synagogue, Bevis Marks: The Restaurant restaurant kept its name, leading to confusion among diners who would turn up at the one restaurant when they had really intended to go to the other. 1701 closed down in early 2015, with Bevis Marks: The Restaurant following suit later that same year.
