344 Lexington Avenue
The newest restaurant to throw its name into Murray Hill’s boundless South Asian mix is catering to a somewhat specific niche: It’s also kosher. Shalom Bombay, currently of Teaneck, N.J., will soon open its second location on Lexington Avenue.
“This is an ideal spot for a restaurant that caters to a wide variety of eaters,” said ZE Realty‘s Joshua Roth, who brokered the deal. Among the restaurant’s likely patrons, Mr. Roth said, are vegetarians and the health conscious. Unlike much ghee-infused Hindustani fare, Shalom Bombay prefers olive oil.
The restaurant will take up 1,100 square feet, plus an ample basement. It plans to open in April.
