Any suggestions for a restaurant?
PS...Not Kosher and Not for a Sadar.

    Maxxel's in Garden City Park is serving Passover style dinners from the 20th to the 24th. It's a $29.95 prix fix, and I am planning to go just to support the idea that they are doing it.

      Isn't Maxxel's Restaurant in Mineola?

      I think it is, and not in Garden City.

        The holiday lasts 8 days. Everyone has their own way of observing the holiday. The premise is not to eat bread or other leavened products. Also certain other things like pasta, rice, etc., are not eaten. Passover style are things that can be made kosher for Passover, that do not include the forbidden ingredients, but do not have kosher meat.

          As another blogger said. "Everyone has their own way of observing the holiday. The premise is not to eat bread or other leavened products. Also certain other things like pasta, rice, etc."
          It can be kosher for Passover STYLE without being kosher.
          For example, last year we went to Lattanzi Italian restaurant on Restaurant Row in Manhattan, during Passover. While the restaurant isn't kosher, the Passover menu was entirely appropriate, and very good. While the restaurant isn't kosher, the Passover menu was entirely appropriate. The matzah was just delicious, full of garlic and olive oil. We had soup, a fish course, lamb chops with artichokes, and almond cookies. It was served Passover. style, and absolutely not kosher.
