Kosher or "Kosher style" catering in Pgh for Passover

Could you suggest a caterer or restaurant in Pittsburgh that a sedar meal can be ordered from? It doesn't have to be kosher, but the food has to be excellent. Some of the guests will be vegetarians, so hopefully a place that is known for doing interesting vegetarian selections, too. I'll be staying in Shadyside. I just wanted this to be as hassle free as possible for the family. Thank you for any suggestions.

  1. Have you checked out the Smallman Street Deli?

    1. I think if you call the JCC, they would be able to help you, or help you find someone if they're not what you're looking for.

      Smallman Street is good. It's kosher style rather than kosher (it's on Murray Avenue in Squirrel Hill, too): Talk to Jeff.

      This might be interesting, I don't know--I just discovered it.

      And look, a Facebook page:

      Hope this helps.

      1. Jay F, you certainly provided helpful suggestion for the poster.

        As a huge fan of good Jewish Deli I am supposing that Kosher-like, but not Kosher, just means the fare that one would find in a good Jewish Deli minus the required Rabbi interaction,is that correct or is there another level (Kosher-like) of which I am unfamiliar?

          Thanks, everyone. Family plans have changed and we're meeting in Key West. (I'll be schlepping the matzoh!). I'll keep these suggestions for the next trip to PGH> Thank you!

            Bacchus, when I am talking about "Kosher style," I mean just what you're talking about, yes.

            Do you get to the Smallman Street Deli? It's my favorite deli now in Pittsburgh--the one in Squirrel Hill, that is; I've never actually been to the one on Smallman Street.

            Oh, and Daisy, have fun in Key West.
