THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Broadway Cafe Restaurant Review

: Atlanta doesn't offer many strictly kosher restaurants, but Broadway Café meets the specifications required by strictly observant Jewish patrons. All the cooking is done under the supervision of the Atlanta Kashruth Commission. While we've enjoyed many dishes here in the past, we feel that lately the quality, and the creativity, have slipped. Popular pizzas may be made with whole-wheat dough and gluten-free dough, and come by the slice and in personal pan and larger sizes. The Mediterranean platter, with grilled vegetables, was woefully under seasoned, but feta cheese and balsamic vinegar dressing perked it up. Although the restaurant is largely vegetarian, fish is served, typically salmon and tilapia in tacos. Pasta is a mainstay as well. Desserts are made in-house; try the carrot cake. Beer and wine no longer are served. Atmosphere is utilitarian, and service is frenetic. The restaurant closes at 3 p.m. on Fridays for Sabbath, and is closed on all Jewish holidays.
