Kohn’s Kosher food stand back at Busch Stadium for Cards home opener



Ellen Futterman, Editor-in-Chief

There are few sure things in Cardinals baseball, but one thing you can count on this season: Kohn’s kosher food stand will be operating at its usual Busch Stadium location, behind section 147.

That will start with the team’s home opener April 7, at 3:15 p.m.

“We’ll have all the standard stuff,” said Lenny Kohn, owner of Kohn’s Kosher Meat & Deli. Meaning kosher stadium dogs, killer pastrami sandwiches and of course the Pastrami Hot Dog. In a bun dressed in spicy mustard and filled with grilled onions and sauerkraut, this classic kosher dog comes topped with a heaping pile of Kohn’s pastrami.

Kohn said he also will continue to operate a kosher stand in front of his deli near Creve Coeur Wednesdays through Sundays, though the store is closed Saturdays for Shabbat and closes at 1:30 p.m. Fridays and Sundays. There, visitors can enjoy food similar to what Kohn’s serves at the ballpark.
