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. http://www.jccpgh.org/page/mordys.

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

      This might be interesting, I don't know--I just discovered it. http://www.pittsburghkosher.com/

      And look, a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/KosherPittsb...

      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.
