Dino For the High Holidays

Elyssa Sep 15, 2008 08:36 AM

Does anyone know if Dino does a special menu for the Jewish High Holidays?

I know that they do a special menu for Passover, but wasn't sure about the week between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

I was looking for a place to have dinner with my boyfriend and his Mom the night before Yom Kippur (for once I'm trying to avoid cooking if at all possible) and thought this might be a nice idea.

      Oh great! Thanks so much. For some reason I missed this when I was looking last night.

      Has anyone been before? Any reviews?

        We went there for Passover and it was terrific. We loved the food especially the matzo ball soup and the gefilte fish.

          I saw that Dino is doing Rosh Hashanah again this year. We're considering going on Friday night but I'm curious if anyone knows of any other restaurants offering a special menu for the holiday. We don't keep kosher or anything--just want to do something with some kind of traditional aspects.

            We did this last year and had a wonderful experience. The matzo ball soup was out of this world. Dean gave us a great explanation of how it was made. Everything was served family style---lots and lots of food. A nice relaxing atmosphere.

            I've never celebrated a holiday of any kind in a restaurant before but we decided to do Kol Nidre last year since it was just me, my bf, and his Mom. I was already cooking for break fast so I thought we would try something new.

            I can't recommend Dino enough for the High Holidays! L'Shana Tova!

              NB No matzho balls this year! More of a Sephardic tinge to the soup with rice.

                Elyssa (or Dean) -- I was just thinking about this for this year (the webpage does make it sound great, too, but it would probably only be two of us -- seems like that might be kind of sad for 'family style' -- but since it was only the three of you last year --I guess I'm just trying to picture how the servings/portions would work with two people.
