Ezra Mishkin is the fabled founder of E.Mishkin (colloquially known as Mishkin’s) and allegedly established the restaurant on Catherine Street in 1931.
The current restaurant has actually been in existence since November 2011.
The boundaries in Mishkin’s origins are as ambiguous as the menu’s influences. Mishkin’s is not Kosher (and neither, incidentally, is Katz’s Deli in New York - perhaps the most famous Jewish restaurant in the world) and the dishes are based very loosely on the sort of Jewish comfort food we all love eating. Where possible we have used amazing local producers (the Big Apple Pork Hot Dog is lovingly made in East London) and where appropriate we have lightened recipes, refined traditional stodginess and, most of all, been playful.
