Turns out the chef/co-owner Jason Marcus has a blog & loves food and I sort of quote here from his blog " Traif is a restaurant that celebrates the foods that I love most, which just so happens to be the foods that I am not supposed to eat. At Traif, we will feature pork and shellfish. Do you like bacon in everything,"
Well I do and my family background is Jewish and Italian and I was not raised with any food restrictions (thank goodness)!
The food is far from perfect but I would recommend it and I will go back. What I enjoyed most was the interesting combination of ingredients and that there's bacon in a lot of the dishes including dessert! Yes we had doughnuts with bacon and they were a great end to the meal. Not too sweet and fried to order.
