There’s a New Kosher Dairy Restaurant at the Sago Hotel on Orchard Street

Posted on: March 15th, 2018 at 5:02 am by

With the arrival of a new kosher restaurant on the block, Orchard Street is returning to its roots. Noga, as it’s called, debuted at the end of January on the ground level of the Sago Hotel, filling a vacancy left last year by The John Lamb.

Noga is a kosher dairy restaurant from the same owners behind Bison and Bourbon steakhouse in Crown Heights – Duddy Shagalov, Ariel Mangami, and Menachem Wolf. This is the trio’s second venture, which offers a menu of pastas alongside “upscale fish and dairy dishes.” Former Jean-Georges chef John Goullette is reportedly in the kitchen.

The restaurant is located in the basement of the hotel and is viewable from the street level; entrance is around the corner at 120 Allen Street. By offering Noga as its onsite food and beverage, Sago is seemingly targeting a more religious demographic to stay at its hotel.
