In a rather surprising move, chef Eric Greenspan’s Midcourse Hospitality Group has partnered with Avi Heyman and Daniel Uretsky to open Fleishik’s Sandwiches, Nosh & Whiskey, a new kosher Jewish restaurant along Beverly Boulevard. And even more eye-opening: It’s slated to start serving next week.
Fleishik (Yiddish for meat) lands in the former Urban Garden space right along that dense stretch of Beverly not far from The Grove, and next door to Sweet Rose Creamery. The spot will serve traditional Jewish fare that expands beyond the traditional deli, from brisket to grilled salami to more composed sandwiches you’d never find at Jerry’s Deli. You can also find throwbacks like a Waldorf salad and miniature bites of kugel, and all with a full underlying liquor license to boot.
Perhaps most interestingly, Fleishik’s will operate completely under kosher food laws, making it a fantastic Jewish option for the neighborhood. Beyond the cooking process and menu, the restaurant will also observe shabbat on Saturdays, and include a hand-washing sink in the dining area (used in a custom called “netilat yadayinm”) for anyone who participates.
Midcourse’s Jim Hustead has designed the place to include herringbone wood and ample tile. He’s also the one behind the new Mare in Silver Lake, and many of the group’s other design works.
If all goes according to plan, Fleishik’s will open on Monday, March 13, serving from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday. On Fridays they will close a little over an hour before sundown, and reopen Saturday an hour after sundown in observance of shabbat.
