Manhattan, NY – Jets Order ‘Prime KO Kosher Restaurant’ To Stop Serving Gang Green Dishes


    Manhattan, NY – Seems not everyone with the Jets has Rex Ryan’s appetite — or sense of humor.

    A team official discovered that a popular kosher steakhouse on the Upper West Side was serving “green on green Jets salad” and “Jets dragon roll” and ordered them pulled off the menu.

    Jets spokeswoman Jessica Ciccone called Prime KO Japanese Steakhouse at 217 W. 85th St. a few weeks ago to complain the gourmet Gang Green fare wasn’t authorized by the team.

    “We were really shocked,” said restaurant spokesman Steven Traube. “I think she was just being spiteful.”

    It didn’t matter to the team that the dishes were created by a rabid Jets fan, restaurant chef Makoto Kameyama, 49.

    Kameyama grew up in Tokyo playing football on his high-school team, the Mean Elephants. On Sundays, he’d watch NFL games on a big screen at the Sony Building in Ginza.

    He came to New York in 1980 after his older brother took over his father’s sushi restaurant.

    “I wanted to see football with my eyes,” he said.

    In April he was named the executive chef at the restaurant.

    The steakhouse hopes the team backs down, at least until the end of the season. It even added a Jets latke, a potato pancake topped with basil, to celebrate Hanukkah.

    Either way, Kameyama said he’ll be rooting on his team in its showdown tomorrow night with the New England Patriots.

    Ciccone did not respond to a request for comment.

    1. Aha!
      So this is why the Jets can’t win a Super Bowl! A sushi roll?!?! Hopefully Prime Korban Olah can take the curse off of the menu and we can finally win!!!

    2. We can use a nice fancy Kosher restaurant in New england, and the Krafts’s are huge Baalei Tzedaka, so they’d be welcome up here.

      Of course they’d have to change allegiances to the Pats.
