    This is absolutely heavenly … pure genius, and I am not even sure the word “scrumptious” could begin to describe what this menu is all about! OMG!!!! Get in my belly!

    YUM!!! My mom had her post-wedding dinner here tonight, and it was amaaaazing. Definitely wins best dinner of the year award 🙂 – will be dreaming of the pork cheeks, foie, and sliders for a looong time. A wonderful experience and we’ll definitely be back soon!

    Just wanted you to know that I had two wonderful meals at Traif last month, and I plan to go back in the near future. Crispy pork belly, tuna tartare and meatballs were just delectable. Dulce de leche bacon doughnuts were just wonderful. Keep up the good work! More power to you Jason!

    Since we are talking food, you are personally invited to eat a meal (sorry, not traif) at my home with my family and kids on shabbes or yontif (next month lots of holidays) and say lechaim. You could say my home, and certainly during the holidays, has a name, ‘Leibedig’ (Lively!) I live local.
