In Jezebel’s version, the role of Jesus will be played by Woody Allen. (Photo credit: Chana Blumes)Having only opened its doors a few weeks ago, a new addition to SoHo’s nightlife/culinary scene has already made quite a splash.

What is surprising, and comes as music to our ears, is that the food and drink are strictly kosher. But the one-of-a-kind experience that is an evening at Jezebel, begins well before you take your first bite.

Jezebel, you see, is almost as much an art gallery as it is a
