Cedarhurst Changes

What's going on in Cedarhurst? Ruthie's is for sale and Schwartz's Appetizing is moving into Gourmet Glatt. Are there any other changes occuring (closings or openings)?

  1. Hopefully Grill Point will be opening. I just called the Queens location and they said "soon" - problem is that in December when I called they said "soon" too. Come to think of it, Grill Point would do better if they were at Ruthie's location.

      Grillpoint will do fine in its present location (if it opens). A place like Smokey Joe's would do really well in Ruthie's location.

    2. I heard Occassions is opening as a dairy restaurant

      1. There's also a kosher counter with pizza, fries, etc opening soon inside the bowling alley in Woodmere (in addition to the treif place that's already there, not instead).

          Please keep us posted when it opens.

            Smokey Joe's would be nice. Perhaps an Indian restaurant or a better Mexican place in the 5 towns. I think we have enough Israeli, pizza , and sushi options.

              Why does Cedarhurst need another dairy restaurant (Occasions). I would like to see a restaurant like Abigael's in Cedarhurst again.

                There are many meat places in the 5 Towns already (I count at least 15, 16 if you include Off the Grill) already. Excluding pizza/bagel places there are not many dairy places around. I would like a dairy restaurant that is open for breakfast as well - a good hearty breakfast special with toasted rye and home fries.

                In Woodmere there is an excellent place called Bistro Grill French Steakhouse, a few minute ride from Cedarhurst with plenty of free parkng in back.

                  Yes, the 5 Towns can use a GOOD dairy restaurant, and I'm not even a dairy type of guy
