This sounds really interesting. An event on May 5th on the UWS will introduce foodies to giraffe, locusts ... or not. But perhaps they are.

Marissa, I'm not so sure - the only Marissas in the group don't have J as a last initial! ;)

Gino's pizza Brooklyn (near Boro Park)

They don't advertise the hechsher on the website, but according to an ad in some Jewish paper in Brooklyn, it is certified by Babad. Someone called him and he confirmed he does certify it, but he didn't want to provide their physical location either.

It's really weird.

It's on a private mom's group, so I can't provide the link here. It's delivery only. They refuse to disclose a physical location. As a result, people find it very shady.

People on Facebook are up in arms about it. They refuse to give patrons their address, but yet, it has a hechsher from a hasid named Babad...

Chef Katsuji at Pitopia

We had a similar issue. I couldn't go because hauling 3 kids under 6 from Westchester is an impossibility, but my husband went straight there after work. By the time he arrived, only the chicken and lamb were left (and the salsas were long gone)--apparently the brisket was still there but the Pitopia staff seemed to have butchered it, changing the flavor. Katsuji didn't want to serve it, so alas, I never got to experience it.

I happen to love lamb but I actually thought the chicken was pretty amazing, moreso (perhaps) than the lamb.

I really hope Katsuji establishes shop in NYC. I'd definitely make the trek in more often.

I remember that. This is a bigger spread of sandwich/salad offerings.

Interesting - seems that 7-11 is getting into the kosher game.

Reminds me of the days when I lived on the UWS and there were kosher sandwiches (carried by a company called Yummy Kosher Sandwiches) at the nearby bodega, Sing & Sing. They had this great cranberry wrap that I bought all the time. I miss those days...

Best dairy in nyc

Noi Due has the most amazing Dulce de Leche cake that's to die for. I would go there over Va Bene almost any day -- I feel like Noi Due has better pasta dishes, which is my preference (usually).

When you and I first met at Pizza da Solo 2 years ago, I vaguely recall that we struggled to find a seat in the atrium seating since the few tiny tables there are available to everyone in the venue, not just patrons of the restaurant. That took some time. It's not the best place for a meeting of many.

Try Soosh in Stamford for some amazing Sushi :) Great place, not really well known (yet - they're new!), delicious food.

Best dairy in nyc

Yup, it's not dairy. It's a fish place that serves meat platters if you don't do fish.

When I think dairy, I think pasta/pizza and fish as an afterthought, and would never put Butterfish in that category. It's got great inventive dishes, but I'd never put it in consideration of a place to replace Noi Due.

Great Food @ Badly Planned Event: Kosher Food & Wine Experience (KFWE) 2015

Echoing the same sentiment. It was so crowded that I inadvertently missed some tables. I was really disappointed about that.

Oh but it is. And vegan.

They used to have fish oil but eliminated it in order to become accessible to everyone.

kosher suplements

I ordered soylent (soylent.me) and am waiting for that. It's not a shake though, it's more of a replacement of your meals all day, everyday.

Muscle Milk is kosher in certain flavors (prepared drink only, if I recall) but it has a super sweet aftertaste for hours. It's the weirdest thing you'll ever encounter, assuming you get the aftertaste.

She told me they don't restock those because they must go really quickly. Trust me, that was the first thing I asked!

Petite Shell

Agreed on the table-hogging concern!

I went last night. Had a delicious brie on a plain croissant with apple, honey, and walnut. Husband had a multigrain goat cheese with beet horseradish, avocado, and tomato. Both were excellent. The nutella croissant was our dessert and it was also quite good.

I also loved the Nutella hot chocolate. My only reservation is the cost relative to the portion size - $7.50 seems a bit much. Also, with three people behind the counter, I couldn't understand why it took so long for the food to come out. We got the nutella croissant within 5 minutes, and waited another 10 minutes or so for the brie croissant, followed by another 7-8 minutes or so for the horseradish one (or so it seemed).

Also, when I got there, most of the sweet rugelach were already gone and we finished up the farmer cheese/strawberry and chocolate ones, while the savory ones remained in larger quantities. I'd have liked if they made more for the after Shabbos crowd, but the cashier told me they're usually sold out by 3pm.

Westchester help

Actually, I admit, the confusion is mine alone (sorry!) - Epsteins/Central Ave were as far as I read. I was referring to the kosher style "unsupervised" one in Yonkers, which is not he supervised one in Hartsdale. I can't speak for the Hartsdale location, but I've never heard of the kosher supervision.

Course, I just discussed this with you off list, bagelman, but I figured I'd set the record here too and confirm with everyone else. Plus, I'll bet I'm not the first person who got confused by this.

Fair, but you misconstrued my comment as a judgment of their Kashrut, when my comment referred specifically to the mere presence of a hechsher.

I don't see a link in your post and I've never heard of an Orthodox or Kosher supervision at all for them. I've checked it out more than once and haven't seen any teudah or validation of kashrut. If there's a certificate at all, it's news to me.

Westchester help

Yup, and the OP meant Elmsford, right?

Swirl is by far the best kosher restaurant in Westchester. I go there several times a month. They have good soups, a pretty good veggie burger, make your own salads, a pasta bar, and nice drinks, among others.

Prime Time Cafe is just a few doors down and has good pastas, but I'm not a fan of the pizza.

Eden Wok isn't dairy but is also a few doors down. They have an all you can eat buffet on Monday nights that is widely popular. They serve good sushi too.

Sammys in New Rochelle has closed. Sammys in Scarsdale is still open but my understanding is the hecsher is questionable. Epsteins on Central Park Avenue is more kosher style than kosher.

Hope this helps. I live here so I've pretty much exhausted all my Westchester resources. Wish we had more eateries out here.

Kosher Delivery for Non-Kosher Holdiay Party at a Resturaunt?

I would look into the My Most Favorite Food holiday meals. I had a holiday dinner for my company downtown last year. The food was packaged wonderfully and was delicious. Picture: http://instagram.com/p/iFXkbtiMlR/?mo...

Assuming they order you a full meal, they should deliver to you. Hopefully!

Eating Out in Ft. Lauderdale

Lots of stuff in Hollywood/Ft Laud border on Stirling Road near 441 - but lots more stuff all over the place. There are a few threads on this here as well, so check for "South Florida."

Assuming you want to branch out north, you can look at places in Boca, and if you want to go south, you can look at places in the Miami area. But otherwise, Hollywood, FL is your best bet.
