Shopping for Rosh Hashanah...

What are the best places to shop for Rosh Hashanah in the greater Westchester/Fairfield area...you know...for those traditional items you use to cook at home, or for exceptional whole dishes you want fully prepared from appetizers to desserts.

    Hey Gut
    Do you want Kosher provisions, or is that optional? It makes a difference in the lists. There is a brad new K supermarket in New Rochelle in the same spot where Boston Market was. I took a quick look and it seems clean and bright, but i didn't try any prepared foods.

      lucyis, sorry I did not make that clear...Kosher or kosher-style works for me.
      I also heard that Renaissance Bakery in Scarsdale Village is putting out a Rosh Hashanah menu including pastries and cakes. This is probably kosher-style.

        Gaerlick and Herbs has many locations in Fairfield County _ Greenwich, New Cannan, Westport and they have excellent food for Rosh Hashanah. Also Golds Deli in Westport.

        Try Church Avenue Poultry Market in Scarsdale. I think it's exactly what you're looking for. I eat there for lunch a lot (and take dinner home too!) and the owner was telling me that they are setting up a special menu for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The food is excellent - restaurant quality prepared food at very reasonable prices.

        Good luck! :)

          Poultry Time in New Rochelle has many traditional foods such as chicken soup with or without matzoh balls, stuffed cabbage, kasha, etc. Mount Kisco deli in White Plains, near the Westchester, makes good Israeli dishes such as; chopped salad and hummous. Morton's on Central Avenue is touting their holiday menu and although I rarely buy prepared Yom Tov foods their Italian take home stuff is good so I would make a leap of faith no pun intended) and try some of their takes on Jewish foods.
