Bala Cynwyd’s Dairy Café is the Latest Standout Six Points Restaurant Group
Leading Montgomery County’s kosher culinary empire is an unlikely role for David Magerman. A self-proclaimed non-foodie, the former hedge-fund software developer left his life in Long Island, N.Y., and moved to Gladwyne, where he adopted Modern Orthodox Judaism and devoted his fortune to boosting the growth of regional Jewish schools.
Once here, Magerman decided he’d dabble in restaurant ownership. His first idea, a kosher Subway franchise, was quickly supplanted by something a little more inventive: an original glatt kosher collaboration with Philly heavyweights Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook (Zahav, Federal Donuts). The trio’s gourmet kosher kitchen, Citron + Rose, underwent a series of changes in a few short years, from tweaks to its name and concept, to new chefs, to the departure of Solomonov and Cook.
