Bagels N' Greens, Brooklyn

Who was it who said they had success using this location for an event? I have called five times, emailed three and left two facebook messages and noone responds or call me back.
Does anyone have a reliable bagel/ salad store to recommend? I will not contact them again.

Any vegan subs for creme freche?

I found this recipe that looks amazing and would like to make it, but I am dairy-free. Any ideas?

Brooklyn bridal shower

Affordability is key. We are hosting for 15 - 20 people between two of us, and we dont want to spend a fortune. Are there any other catering places we should be aware of that do a nice job?

thanks!

Brooklyn bridal shower

I am making a bridal shower for a friend; generally speaking, is it more cost-efficient to use a drop off catering service or a party is a restaurant? We are expecting about 15 people and want to do a breads, salads, soups menu... Any recommendations for a restaurant with a party room? As for catering, i have contacted this place: http://www.bunchobagels.com/catering/

Bagel/Coffee shop in Monsey?

yoffee coffee is brand new- never been but heard its very good. purple pear is, in my opinion, vastly overpriced.

Not an answer to your question, but I was super impressed with Evergreen in Monsey. Lots of parking, easy to find and really nice staff.

Found: Best kosher pizza in Brooklyn

Very close to Sheepshead Bay. There were many extremely chassidsh/ Yeshivish people eating in the restaurant, and FWIW, my LOR said that Rabbi Navarro is fine....

Found: Best kosher pizza in Brooklyn

We went to Pizza by the Bay on Jerome avenue. Does not say Kosher on the outside and its a very small store so easy to miss, although there is a car park really close by. The pizza was fantastic- easily best pizza in brooklyn and probably in the whole NYC area. Also, the french fries- omg the fries.. Home-made, home cut and proper belgian frites- a perfect crisp to them and beautifully seasoned with a salt/ paprika mix. They also do make your own salads, mozarella sticks etc. Highly recommend.

Quick, random question

Can anyone confirm if the Tivall veggie hot dogs are still sold in Tri-state area? We are leaving Israel on Thursday and I want to know if they are still available there or if i need to bring from here... Tivall only though- we really hate zoglos.
TIA!

Stamford Hill in London

Nope :) There are few restaurants in Stamford Hill, unless you want to try Tasti Pizza (colloquially called tasteless pizza).

Shippudim Restaurant food

We went here last night for a bat mitzvah. http://www.jerusalem-insiders-guide.c...

If anyone wants authentic food this is the place to go- really delicious salads, pita, fries.

We were served a rice dish that consisted of white rice on the bottom and small WHITE beans on top in a tomato sauce. It literally looked like rice had been made and a can of baked beans poured on top. But, it wasn't.

Any idea what it was? Recipes?

Shopping in London as a native

Public transport isn't bad at all from Hampstead to Golders Green. AFAIK, St Johns Wood is not on the northern line, but Hampstead is (not sure what/ if st.john woods line is); the GG (golders green) train station isn't far from the kosher eateries in GG nor from Hendon. Even Edgware is on the Northern Line if you want to go further afield!
That said, if you won't have car, and it is important to you to be near kosher restaurants and bakeries I highly recommend you perhaps look into living in a more Jewish area. If I was to move to the UK now I would be looking at Finchley. Lovely traditional/modern orthodox community, very friendly, affluent, lovely high road with a couple of kosher eateries, walkable to Hendon, Tesco on main road etc... Let me know if you want my email or any
more help.

Shopping in London as a native

I am english. To the best of my knowledge there are no bakeries/ kosher shops in the areas you mentioned but if you are ok eating stuff with a vegetarian logo on it (some people are, but id check before serving it) you wont have a problem in any of the local bakeries.
Also, excellent Indian vegan/ veggie places. The bakeries, btw, are amazing. Each one is actually different tasting unlike the bakeries in the USA and Israel which i find all taste the same. The bakeries are in GG, Hendon etc. I should also tell you that Hampstead really isn't far from Golders Green and the drive is very easy. Born and bred in London, so feel free to ask me any questions!

London recommendations?

If you want a standard cafe, Orlis is in Finchley, Hendon, Edgware and I think Borehamwood; It is not bad.
-There is a restaurant called Kanteen in Brent Cross Shopping Center, also decent.
-Metsuyan is in Golders Green- have heard good things.
-Isola Bella moved to Golders Green- nice location.
Heard good thinks about the formerly known Novellino, then Bistro now...?.. on GG Road.
White House in Hendon (Brent St) has good Israeli food (same owners as Isola Bella).
If you want interesting pizza/ mllkshakes- pizzaza in Hendon or Golders Green is the go-to place.
There is also SoYo- same owners as Pizzaza which serves salads, froyo, pastas etc. GG Road too.

Pomodori -Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY. Pizza Worth a Special Trip?

Google pomodori pizza crown heights and one should come up. Basil and pomodori are very different. pomodori= more family pizzeria style; basil more elegant.

URGENT need info NOW for Burger,org on Chestnut

This is a pretty moot point, but poodle your post makes no sense! You wanted them for dinner last night or tonight? If last night and it was too late to call, then how would they have taken your order? If tonight, why didn't you just call them when they opened? I am confused.
