Jewish Food Festival 2013

challah_congregation_gates_of_heaven.jpgThe annual Jewish Food Festival at Congregation Gates of Heaven in Schenectady is this Sunday (March 10). Blurbage:

Last year over 600 food lovers attend this annual festival to fest on all the Jewish food favorites (kosher style) they can eat including classics such as homemade matzo ball soup, knishes, kugel, and rugeluch, NYC-style bagels, bialys, and lox, whitefish, kosher hot dogs, beef brisket, and much more. Sample a variety of foods prepared by the Capital District's very best restaurants and caterers including Price Chopper's Ben and Bill's Deli, Glen Sanders Mansion, Schmaltz Brewing, Gershon's Deli, Homestyle Catering, Honest Weight Food Co-op, Phoenician's Restaurant, Saati's Catering, Different Drummers Kitchen, and many more.

We also hear that Daniel B. and Leah the Nosher will be there.

Admission is $15.00 for adults, $5.00 for kids 13-17, and free for kids 12 and under -- and it's unlimited samples with admission.

Recent Comments

Can they fill that much retail and office space in downtown Albany? I think they'll be able to fill the residential, but that much retail space requires the same kind of national chain stores that are in Latham or Wolf Road. 300,000 square feet would be more than 7 Marshall's stores. Unless downtown is in the running for the Costco (unlikely) or the Cabella's (still pretty unlikely but maybe less so), what stores would open in downtown Albany?
