Kosher Brunch Site: Off N. Y. Thruway?
STill hoping for a Kosher brunch site halfway between Philadelphia and Hartford, Conn.
Anyplace in the Newburg/Tarrytown/Nyack/ Airdale areas or closeby?
Big family event; family coming from as far away as Boston, but they could sleep over in
Teaneck isn't far enough North.
Thanks in advance!
I did'nt know how to spell Airmont. That is a possibility. What Kosher places along route 59
should I consider?
How we get there isn't the issue; we could go many ways. What we need is a nice place
to have a pleasant brunch for our family group of 11. Seven of us are coming from Philadelphia,
so Connecticut is too far for us to travel.
As for what's in Airmont/Monsey, there's a very large variety of places. Unfortunately, I haven't been to what I'd consider a kosher brunch place in that area. Rocklanders, a little help please? This location is an ideal meeting spot, as it is just over 2 hours from Philly and a little under 2 hours from Hartford.
It seems a lot of people are unaware of Shamash.org's Kosher Database. It is an attempt to list almost every kosher establishment in the world(!), and does the best job of any site on the web in my opinion. It has information on type of place, supervision, and usually reviews for most popular restaurants. Best of all, there is Google Maps interface, which even the geographically challenged should be able to navigate. Here's the link
Again, I haven't been, but this place looks like it might fit the bill
Anyone have an opinion? Please give us your review. It looks like if you choose this place, reservations would be highly advisable.
Duh. This is embarrassing. I tried to find "Rocklanders Restaurant"!!!
Using your links, dk, I was able to locate The Purple Pear, in Monsey, which is upscale
dairy, and open for brunch at 11am. they are sending me a menu by email, and I will
ask our daughter to check out the supervision part. If it works out, I will let you all know.
But, is anyone on the Board familiar with this place?
The supervision is excellent. The food, IMO, leave something to be desired, but if you are desperate it is ok. It is pretty expensive as well. Another option, also close by, is Bubba's Bagels.
The Challah Fairy Cafe in New City is EXCELLENT and I would choose to go there over Purple Pear.
