Kosher or Kosher style catering in Bayside area

lucyis Oct 6, 2008 05:35 AM

My family will be getting together at Dad's house after Mom's Unveiling service. We'll be about twenty people on a Sunday afternoon in late October. I'd like to get something a little more substantial than the usual bagel and fish spread.Suggestions please.

    If all you need is "kosher style," there's a Ben's Deli in the Bay Terrace section of Bayside (http://www.bensdeli.net/). It's kosher but not glatt kosher (they serve Hebrew National hot dogs), and they're open on Saturdays, which is a problem for strictly observant Jews but should be acceptable for others.

    There are plenty of kosher options near but not in Bayside, such as Mazur's in Little Neck (http://www.MazursMarketplace.com), and many places in Great Neck (http://www.queensvaad.org/estab/index.cfm?EstabCity=Great%20Neck) and Fresh Meadows (http://www.queensvaad.org/estab/index...). I don't think all of them can do catering but many probably can. Call which ever places sound like the kind of cuisine you're looking for.

        I think we will go with meat and enough vegetables to make our two vegetarians happy.

          If you wanted to do a step nicer than ben's you could do patoug on horace harding at springfield.

          It's a persian restaurant, but they've done small catering jobs for me many times
