in a higher end restaurant ya gotta expect to wait on the food as most people want a dinner that costed that much to be a longer experience (but 45 minutes does sound excessive)

What did you order? i have found some of their stuff to be amazing and some stuff not very good at all...

I usually eat in the city so I may be a bit spoiled but my experience with 656 has been the same. Long long wait and I like my steak rare rare with a cool inside.

You're better off eating next door at Stingers, you can get pretty much the same food for half the price.

Actually the owner told me that originally he was planning on opening a carlos and gabbe's but they wanted an exhorbitant fee, so he figured he'll do it on his own. We won't know what it is really like til they open the full menu. At the moment they basically only have tacos and appetizers

Just picked up food in kosher taco, the menu is basically limited to snacks right now no dishes. Someone commented about the wait time but that wasn't my experience I was in and out. The food we tried was good. Once they expand their menu I can see them being succesful as they are well located.

Does anyone know if the Bagels at DD in Todd Plaza are kosher parve?

What other items can be bought there that are kosher (not chalav stam) ?

Taco place interesting food very good ( agree its prob a fad ) very well priced but you don't get full
656 has got to be one of the worst higher end restaurants around ( haven't been there in 3 yrs could have changed )

Sure,
I don't know if this has changed but approximately 3 years  i spoke to the mashkiach tmidi at 656 about stingers, he told me that although the food is made in the same kitchen it is not under the hechsher and there is no way of enforcing that nothing gets messed with after it leaves their side.

I will contact the JSOR, but I have seen recently that they take things from stingers into the other restaurant, so it could be it changed.
