Check Out Yelp’s First Kosher Heat Map

Keeping strictly kosher often means making dinner plans in advance — picking a restaurant, price point and neighborhood. There’s little opportunity to wander through the streets on a warm summer evening and pick your dinner locale based on what you feel like eating at that very moment.

But Yelp, the massive peer review site, is helping change that. The site recently launched a series of “heat maps” — essentially maps of cities where a concentration of reviews mention key words like BYOB’s, cocktails and kosher.

So if you’re looking to meander your way to a kosher meal, you might want to follow the Yelp kosher map to Manhattan’s Midtown East, the Upper West Side and or the Midwood neighborhood of Brooklyn where loads of people are Yelping about kosher dining spots.

While the heat maps cover 14 cities including LA, London and Chicago, the kosher map is only available for New York City at the moment. We’re hoping ones for Miami, LA, Paris and other kosher hubs are coming soon.

Did your favorite kosher restaurant make the map? Tell us in the comments.
