The owners of the recently opened 613 Grill in North Central Phoenix invited a friend to come sample the food two weeks before the restaurant’s official grand opening, scheduled for mid-February. The invitation, intended as a gustatory “trial run” for one person, snowballed when the guest told others about the new glatt kosher restaurant. The result was a surprise “invasion.” Almost immediately, the place was packed, said Angelika Borochov.
Borochov and her husband, Sefi, co-own the restaurant with friends Jenny and Itzhak Rafael.
