Smoked fish

Hi Board,

My wife and I are hosting our first family event in our Jackson Heights apt and it is the after fast meal for Saturday night. I need find a place in the Queens where I can get smoked white fish, pickled herring is cream sauce and all the usually "Jewish" break fast supplies. I know I can go to Zabars or fairway in Manhattan, but rather give money to a neighborhood store.

thanks

    Your best bet is:
    Rego Smoked Fish Company
    69-80 75th Street
    Middle Village, Queens
    718-326-2170
    It's a little hole in the wall, but great quality, excellent prices. Check to see what their hours are, and expect it will be mobbed for the holiday.

      I jut finished writing a post in which I implored people to frequent their local eateries, so first let me say thank you for expressing the desire to do the same. :-}
      If we dont support them, they will not stay in business and we'll all lose out.

      As for your posting: I would recc you also post your request on the Kosher Board.
      If that doesn't work, contact a local synagogue to ask who they use for catering.
      Have a great meal!

        Check out Fantasy Foods - not sure if their fish kosher certified, but I'm pretty sure it is...

          Acme is a good recommendation however be prepared for a long wait for service as the holiday crowd will be lined up 10 deep..

          Well there's Acme, which is in Greenpoint, which is almost Queens. They are open only on Friday morning, which would work
