The most desirable Jewish cuisine is once again available in Crown Heights.
5 years after the closure of the Chinese eatery Esther’s Deli & Grill on Albany Avenue, a new kosher restaurant Prime Wok is opening this week and will serve staple Asian dishes.
The eatery is opening adjacent to Prime Sandwich in the former storefront of Hosanna Deli Grocery at 377-a Kingston Avenue which had been in operation for around 35 years.
“I had been trying for years to get the owner next door to move out and sell me his lease,” says Yossi Gershowitz, the Crown Heights resident who owns both Prime restaurants.
“It always bothered me that he sold non-kosher foods,” Gershowitz told COLlive.com. “I was always hoping to take the space over to offer kosher food for all.”
The store was fully renovated with an Oriental-inspired design and can seat up to 30 people, which will also be available for events. They will be offering catering service for small events and simches, as well as home delivery.
An Executive Chef has begun working and crafting a menu with the help of 3 assistant chefs. They are offering familiar Chinese food for the Jewish palate with an extensive chicken menu, beef menu, appetizers and diet menu.
The price ranges between $12 to $15 per meal. Small and large size portions are available.
Prime Wok is open for business and is having a soft opening on Thursday night from the Prime Sandwich entrance.
