Fantastic Kosher (or Kosher Style) Appetizing or Deli? (Nassau)
My husband and I recently moved to Floral Park and have yet discover a place that satisfies our cravings for old time Jewish cuisine. We've been to Deli King & Dairy King and were extremely disappointed. (Don't order the stuffed cabbage! Yikes!)
We're planning a party and want to cater it with bagels and "appy". We think we'll get the bagels from "Hand-Rolled Bagels" in New Hyde Park. Maybe some whitefish, too. But where to get the rest??? Maybe some place in Great Neck?
The delis are thick in the Plainview area. Regal on Old County Road, corner with Manetto Hill (north-east corner), and Rueven's and Boomy's on South Oyster Bay Road, both on either side of Woodbury Road (eastern side), about 1/4 south of the Northern State.
Deli on Rye in the Waldbaum's shopping center on Willis Ave. in Roslyn/Albertson is very good. There is always Ben's in Wheatley Plaza in Greenvale too. However, they only have meat. Bagel Boss in the Peninsula Shopping Center in Hewlitt has delicious appetizing.
Fairway in Plainview has a good selection of lox, whitefish, sturgeon, pickled herring, etc. However, I don't like their baked salmon or whitefish salads. My mother buys hers from a bagel place somewhere in western Suffolk and it's delicious. I can ask where the shop is.
She also swears by the Shoprite at 444 Woodbury Road (in the shopping center right past the corner of Woodbury and South Oyster Bay roads.) Since there's a large Jewish population in the area they tend to have a good appy selection. I believe the same person (Greenfield?) also owns the one in Morten Village.
