The bad news is that you have to wait until the end of the video to find out. The good news is that, in the meantime, you get to learn about famed New York ess-ery Barney Greengrass — “the Sturgeon King” — which is celebrating its 100th birthday.

Although I am Jewish I like Jewish food I could not eat there because now a days the food they described would make me ill even though I am sure it is good, I wonder why they can't have more healthy Jewish food in these times where good health is needed? What about fresh greens,fish, fruits,herbs,seeds and bottled water over the fair served in many Jewish eateries?
