Anthony Rose is opening a Jewish “appetizing store” behind Fat Pasha

Anthony Rose is opening a Jewish "appetizing store" behind Fat Pasha

It’s funny how food trends happen. One day everyone’s happily eating tacos, the next they’re sipping Manischewitz cocktails and spending $14 on matzoh-ball soup. Traditional Jewish foods (potato latkes, chopped liver) have shown up on the menus at People’s Eatery in Chinatown, Essen on Dundas West and Anthony Rose’s Annex restaurant Fat Pasha, which serves schmaltz fried rice and babka bread pudding. Now, according to Post City, Rose is extending the Jewish theme with Schmaltz Appetizing, a food store tucked behind Fat Pasha in the little coach house that used to house the Indian Rice Factory’s Chai Bar. For those who don’t know, an “appetizing store” is a Jewish specialty shop that sells all the stuff you’d typically eat with bagels, like smoked salmon, whitefish and cream cheese. The new store is scheduled to open later this month, in the week following Thanksgiving.
