The Upper West Side’s only kosher pizza place, Mike’s Pizzeria, closed less than two months ago. But Chef Michael Gershkovich opened Manhattan’s first glatt kosher burger bar in its place on Amsterdam Avenue and West 91st Street. The Amsterdam Burger Co. menu includes beef burgers and chicken wings — no cheese allowed. Gershkovich, who also owns Mike’s Bistro on West 79th Street, partnered with restaurateur Marty Katz to renovate the joint. “Getting wings and a beer in kosher dining is so impossible,” Gershkovich told DNAinfo, until now.
