New Kosher Restaurant in the Five Towns

I saw an ad in the Five Towns (New York) Jewish Times that a new Israeli restaurant is opening at the site of a former Kosher Pizza place (Central Kosher Pizza and Pizza Professor before that) on Central Avenue in Cedarhurst. It is scheduled to open this Sunday.

I was happy to see that they will be serving Yemenite soup as well as other Israeli specialties.

It is good to see a new Kosher restaurant open in the Five Towns. I heard that the Villages of Lawrence and Cedarhurst will only allow a new restaurant in their villages to only open if an existing restaurant closes (due to the present over capacity in their municipal sewage facility).

        I've looked for the place near the Woodmere Fire Dept. Does anyone know if it ever opened and what is it name and address?

            Carlos and Gabby's Cantina is the name of the new Mexican Restaurant. Food was pretty good, had the 5 alarm chili (which was maybe 2 alarms but they have a wide variety of hot sauces to add in, chile came with a bowl of nachos) and the spicy chicken bits (fried pieces of white meat in a hot sauce). You place order at the counter and they call your # for pickup when ready (which wasn't long at all and they were busy while I was there). Food was good, prices are reasonable, seating is somewhat limited

            it's under the Five Towns Vaad. It's on Rockaway Tpk a block North of the LIRR tracks (don't know the cross-street name)
