Kosher Caterers Now Have to Schlep to Fontainebleau
Oh, Page Six. Not only can we always come to you for the dirtiest gossip, but we know we can always count on you for the classiest ledes. Like this one, kicking off a story about the newly renovated Fontainebleau in Miami: "Miami Beach has changed a lot from the days when so many thousands of elderly Jews retired there, it was called "God's waiting room."
Delicate wording aside, Page Six in today's NY Post does raise a pretty good question: where did the kosher kitchen go? Apparently, the property closed for the massive renovations and reopened minus the separate, entirely kosher kitchen. Oh noes!
From the Post:
Not that there won't be Orthodox bar (or bat) mitzvahs or Jewish weddings anymore - the hotel will use kosher caterers for those events. A spokeswoman informed us, "Fontainebleau will provide kosher meals for holidays upon special request and for private events."
See, super rich kids? You can still have your over-the-top bat mitzvah at the Fontainebleau; no need to throw a fit.
