Feel Right at Home at Ditmas Kitchen & Cocktail

A new take on American classics

The thought of hosting family dinner at your place got you schvitzing?

Then say “kvell, yeah” to Ditmas Kitchen & Cocktail.

Chef Alex Reznik (Perch, La Seine) conjures the all-are-welcome atmosphere of his bubbe’s Brooklyn kitchen with a certified kosher menu of American classics. Restrictions give way to inventive substitutions: bone marrow in lieu of butter, coconut milk replaces cream.

The resident rabbi supervises food prep, but you don’t have to be a member of the tribe to eat a bowl of Jerusalem artichoke soup, a veggie-friendly kale Caesar, or any of seven steaks.


Plant your tuchis at the bar — or in the more formal dining room — and nosh on white fish rillettes (everything bagel, pickled mustard seed, capers), lamb sliders, or handmade pastas. Cap off the meal with an expertly mixed cocktail or a nip of infused-on-site vodka. Boozy Sunday brunch arrives later this year.

Until then, the weeknight happy hour ($4 beers, $5 wine, $6 cocktails) should tide you over.

Welcome to the mishpacha.
