Passover in New York

Our family will be travelling to New York and will be in the the area during the first sedar night. We are hoping to find a restaurant that provides for Passover dinner without too much detailed traditon. My father-in-law is too old at this point to sit for a good old fashioned 4 hour sedar. I guess the key words for us are 'homey' and 'casual'. Any suggestions would be truly appreciated.

Bagels in MD

Another New Yorker here & we all seem to have strong opinions on this one.

Izzy is just the old Manhattan Bagel franchise. They seem to really try hard and have a trivia contest when you shop there. A nice local spot. Goldberg's is a wasteland and the bagels seem hard and dry and without any real flavor. Bethesda Bagel is owned by a guy who learned his craft in NYC and still makes them by hand, unlike anyone else on this side of DC to be sure. Next time you're in there, just tell them why you think they have fallen off quality wise and I am sure they will appreciate hearing it.

Have not tried Virginia bagels @ all. Where is Brooklyn Bagel located please?

Great pastry in Alexandria, Virginia?

A little further off but Pastries by Randolph ... many years back he was the pastry chef @ the Watergate and he has not lost it ... expensive but I come from Maryland as it is well worth it. Over off of Spout Run & Glebe
