Kosher shrink wrapped meals in Manhattan

Yes I'm very nervous about something like that happening. It is at a Reform place that is not familiar with kosher and from what I hear, even pretty anti-kosher. Supposedly they won't allow kosher catering

Kosher shrink wrapped meals in Manhattan

It is at a Reform Temple. Not sure if they are using an inhouse caterer or someone else, but they are totally unfamiliar with kosher. I need to make my own arrangments to make sure that there is wrapped sealed actually kosher food.
The last time I relied on a treif caterer to subcontract out a kosher meal for me at a bar mitzvah they did not give me kosher and it wasn't totally their fault, they were just in over their head and didn't understand.

Kosher shrink wrapped meals in Manhattan

I don't want the item reheating since it will be Shabbos. I am looking for something that can be good cold, like grilled chicken or something similar

Kosher shrink wrapped meals in Manhattan

I will be going to a treif Bar Mitzvah in Manhattan.
Can anyone recommend a take out place that makes shrink wrapped prepared meals with a hashcagah sticker on them?

Anything new and exciting in South Florida?

Anything new and exciting in South Florida?

It seems odd that on their menu they list both kosher and non-kosher wines with notations specifying which are the kosher wines. To me personally, if a place serves non-kosher wine, that means they are not kosher

Large Jewish communities WITHOUT a kosher restaurant

Since at least one of those establishments serves treif liquors then no.

You are right it looks like Indianapolis has a bakery only.

Large Jewish communities WITHOUT a kosher restaurant

Can you same some large Jewish communities that DON'T have a kosher restaurant. Are there any places that surprise you don't have one? Like they seem like a big enough community that you would think they should be able to support one but they don't have one.
For me both Allentown, PA and Providence, RI come to mind.

Did I make a faux pas?

If you are in Morris County, NJ I can personally attest that kashrut there can be confusing. I was once at an event there at which I was supposed to receive a kosher meal and I did not. A non-kosher caterer was supposed to subcontract from a kosher caterer to get some packaged kosher meals for those in attendance that kept kosher and instead they made the "kosher meals" themself. Sounds like in your case your guest was simply confused.

Did I make a faux pas?

That was my thinking also, that somewhere along the line somebody was mistaken.
I've never heard someone who keeps kosher actually use the term "not kosher enough." That is often something that people who don't keep kosher say

Did I make a faux pas?

I have to admit I'm VERY curious as to who this caterer is and what bakery this is that this guy would have a problem with but everybody else including an Orthodox Rabbi would eat from?

New Kosher BBQ place in North Bethesda / Rockville, Maryland

I called them and I think it is crazy that a kosher restaurant would not have a children's menu!
Their prices overall seem reasonable, but for a family it could really start to add up after getting every kid a $10 hamburger. They should offer kids smaller burgers for for 6 or 7 dollars.

Kosher British Food

Does anyone know of any kosher restuarants in either the UK or US that serve any traditional British food other than fish and chips (ie meat pies, bangers and mash, bubble and squeak, Yorkshire pudding, etc) Doesn't need to be a place that exlusively serves that kind of cuisine but at least has some options.
Thanks.

Help needed in Deal, NJ area for tonight

I reccomend Stingers next door to 656 Ocean in Long Branch. Great burgers and sandwiches, full kosher bar, and very nice atmosphere. Not dirt cheap, but reasonable prices by kosher standards. Very dependable food. Service is a a little slow, but nice and they try to be accomodating. They also offer free fresh popped popcorn.

Kosher Ice Cream on the Jersey Shore

I meant the Deal/Long Branch/Ocean/Elberon area. I wasn't aware of there being kosher options in the more southerly areas of the Jersey Shore. I was specifically looking for reviews of the places I listed but if someone knows of any other kosher ice cream available in Bradley Beach, Avon, Neptune, Asbury Park, etc, I'd love to know.

Fran's Chicken Haven in Boca Raton, FL now KOSHER!

I heard they kept the same recipes; just got rid of the fried shrimp, etc.
I'm sure the prices went up!

Fran's Chicken Haven in Boca Raton, FL now KOSHER!

Fran's Chicken Haven, a Boca Raton landmark for 45+ years, recently became kosher under the ORB!
I highly reccomend! How rare is it for a long established meat-oriented place to go kosher!
