Earlier this week, a closing sign was posted in the window of My Most Favorite Food, a kosher restaurant and dessert destination located at 247 West 72nd Street, between Broadway and West End Avenue. Thanks to Jessica Stark for the tip.
“Lost our lease but not our existence. 40 plus years strong, we are still here for all your celebrations,” the sign reads, with an additional heads up for patrons to “Look for our new brick and mortar launch of My Most Favorite – Version 5.0.”
An employee we spoke with on Friday morning told us it would be the last day of indoor dining at the UWS restaurant. However, you can still (at least for now) order by phone and pick up from the 72nd Street location. Catering will also continue, and beginning next week, the restaurant will be doing deliveries around its Upper West Side delivery zone, still to be determined.
The person we spoke with was unsure when the lease actually ends, and as of writing, they do not have a new location locked down.
We reached out to the agent of the property, Aaron Sirulnick of Ditmas Management, who said he was “Very sorry to see them go. We worked very well with the family who owns the business and provided them with the relief they needed during the pandemic. It was a decision that they made and we’re sorry see them go.”
We’ll provide an update once we know more about My Most Favorite Food’s future. If you’re looking for some pick-up or delivery (starting next week), options we recommend include the Tuna Melt on Baguette, Grilled Salmon Caesar, the Homemade Gnocchi with handmade pesto, sun dried tomato relish with baby arugula and the Beer Battered Fish & Chips. For dessert, the White Chocolate Mousse Cake and Deep-Dish Apple Crumb are can’t miss. So is the Pecan Pie. mymostfavorite.com
