Mocha Red Brings a Kosher Miami/Mexican Riviera Vibe to Union Square in New York

June 9, 2021 – There has never been a Kosher steakhouse like Mocha Red. Mocha Red in Manhattan’s Union Square, is expected to open at the end of June. Owner Naftali Abenaim, the brainchild of Mocha Burger in Soho and on the Upper East Side, and Mocha Bleu, a gourmet dairy restaurant in Teaneck, New Jersey, said Mocha Red will have the best of American and MediterrAsian fusion cuisine and an extensive selection of wine, spirits, beer on tap and artisanal craft cocktails.

July 6, 2021 – This kosher steakhouse was inspired by the vibrant mural-splashed Wynwood district of Miami and beachfront Tulum, Mexico, an unusual pairing, and especially so if you add kosher steaks. Not only that, Naftali Abenaim, one of the restaurant’s owners, says the cooking is a fusion of Mediterranean and Asian fare.
