Who will have prepared foods for Pesach in Brooklyn?
We were not pleased with last year's order from Chap-a Nosh-any better suggestions would be welcome.
Pomegranate, Meisner's, Meal Mart. Nesher in Boro Park, maybe? I would definitely start with Pomegranate, though - they'll have the largest selection and I've only ever heard good things. Pomegranate offers gebrokts and non-gebrokts options. Meal Mart is great for your basics - kugels, salads, etc.
Update: Gourmet on J will not be cooking for Pesach this year. Neither will Meisner's on New Utrecht Avenue. I picked up a Pesach menu on Meisner's counter for a place called "The Holiday Chef". Never heard of it. I asked a worker in Meisner's, if this was their Passover menu, and he said it wasn't, and that they would be closed.
Has anyone here ever used "Holiday Chef" in the past? Any feedback, or reviews?
I got the menu from Pomegranate yesterday, also available on their website.
It looks really good (though note they make no mention of prices) and has a lot of the same items they sell through the rest of the year. If the quality is the same it should be good to excellent.
Pomegranate has the most exquisite menu, although you pay for quality. For instance, their tongue in a shiso sauce is $39.99 a pound year round, so for Pesach, expect thast to go up a few bucks.
Fischer Brothers and Leslie has a Pesach menu; they're the highest quality kosher butcher I've ever been to in my life in NYC, and is in the same league as Pomegranate.
