food during shiva week

Any recommendations for sending platters to someone sitting shiva in the Brooklyn area. I'm looking for real food: -It can be deli, chicken, mediteranian salads, wraps, bagels and salads, or any other suggestions. I'm not looking to send a fruit assortment.

  1. I'm bumping up this old thread. I have to send something TODAY or TOMORROW at the latest for shiva. They live in Park Slope. Many thanks in advance.

      You have a wealth of options in Brooklyn. What are you interested in sending?

        Something very easy for the family like a deli platter or maybe Israeli food. Thank you. They are in Park Slope.

          Try Blue Dish Cafe on 13th ave. Dairy place, heard they do nice platters.

          I sat shiva a few months ago for my dad. I was very appreciative of thevfood platters, especially the lighter fare like salads and pasta.

            I sat shiva for my dad about 2 years ago, Spoons sent over a very nice platter of wraps . The food was very good, the sandwiches were varied, so everyone could have what they wanted. They sent over great muffins also. Gmar Chasima Tova, may we not have to talk about shiva platters anymore.

        Call Chagall Bistro at 718 832 9777 and tell them that it's for a shiva, the owners are very nice and very generous, and will deliver something appropriate and good. They're right in the neighbourhood, so delivery will be no problem at all.

        I was at a shiva house in the Slope a few weeks ago and Chagall sent over some meals of their own accord, just because they knew about it.

          Thank you both for the information. Greatly appreciated.

          Some of the Midwood places would deliver if you arranged for a car service to pick up and drop off.

            Point being you have to arrange it. Calling a local place means one less thing to arrange (and pay for).

              Yes, true. But I was putting it out there in case what the poster wanted wasn't avail locally....
