Kibbitz & Nosh: When We All Met at Dubrow’s Cafeteria unfolds in the mid 1970s as a photographic essay about a unique dining establishment that was more than just a place to eat for a generation of Jewish New Yorkers.

Gossip, lipstick, powder puffs, cigars, kerchiefs, fedoras, and leopard pattern coats—all the cafeteria denizens’ accoutrements for dining on gefilte fish, kasha varnishkes, rice pudding, or blintzes are here.

“...Halperin's photos capture the essence of old New York”

                                             Debi Mazar, actress

"Hand­some­ly designed and print­ed, KIBBITZ & NOSH draws read­ers into this rich, for­got­ten world, explor­ing a notable peri­od and insti­tu­tion in Jew­ish life in America."
