Kosher catering in Philadelphia

Can anyone recommended a Kosher caterer or restaurant in the Philadelphia area that could cater a smallish kiddush-type lunch for a baby naming? I have already contacted Betty the Caterer and they have a minimum dollar amount that I won't be able to meet.

(philadelphia) passover products

As far as I know (I did look into this several years ago, but I don't know if it's still true), Irene's does not have a physical location, they just supply local grocery stores with holiday baked goods. Considering the dearth of fresh Pesach baked goods in the Philadelphia area, I'd recommend anything you can find! :-) I've seen them in the Whole Foods, and I saw them once in the Wynnewood Genaurdi's (although I didn't see any on a trip there last week).

I also like the Genaurdi's in Wynnewood, and R&R Produce on City Line Avenue (same area). I think the ShopRites have better selections (and the one in Cherry Hill is nicer), but I tend to go out to the western suburbs for other things more often, so the Genaurdi's is convenient.

Also, if you just need basics, the grocery store at 18th and Spruce usually has an okay selection. Both Whole Foods have a limited selection, but usually have yummy KFP stuff from Irene's (a local kosher bakery).

Kosher L'Peshach Fox's U-Bet?

I saw it at the ShopRite in Cherry Hill, NJ last night. Maybe check another ShopRite?

Pesach in DC

I second that suggestion. It's called Katz's Kosher Supermarket.
4860 Boiling Brook Pky.

The first time I did my Pesach shopping there I nearly fainted from happiness at the selection. I think you can take the metro out there and then it's a bit of a hike/bus ride to the grocery store. I'm not sure how long it took, but I definitely did it via public transportation. Try using the trip planner on

Kosher for Passover Shopping in Brooklyn

My husband is going to be in NYC during Passover for work, and I'm planning on going up the weekend before to see him and buy him food for the week. I know there are plenty of places in Manhattan, but we'll be staying in the financial district, so I'm just as happy (and curious) to go to Brooklyn.

Any recommendations on places to buy baked goods and prepared food? We are vegetarians, so lunch meat won't cut it.

Also, do I really have to order kosher v'pesach food ahead of time? I keep seeing places online where you can, but I'm not sure I want to order the food sight unseen.
