2004_09_food_honeycake.jpgWe know that Mayor Mike has already done his holiday shopping, but are you ready for Rosh Hashanah? If you haven't managed to pull together a meal that will make your family plotz, the New York Daily News notes that The Prime Grill, will serve a prix fixe kosher Rosh Hashanah dinner on Wednesday at 7:45 p.m. and Thursday at 8:45 p.m. For $95 per person ($175 for both nights), you and your family can enjoy some of the highest-Zagat-rated kosher cuisine in the city (none of that crappy, boxed honey cake nonsense that seems to pop up at Jewish holiday meals around this time of year, we hope). The service will be led by Rabbi Metzger of Chabad of Midtown Manhattan. Call (212) 692-9292 for reservations and information.

In other kosher eatery news, The Park East Grill is hosting a series of four course wine tasting dinners this fall, each course paired with a different wine. Cost is $75 per person, but if you attend three of the dinners, the fourth is free. The first dinner, on September 24th, is an Israeli wine tasting dinner with Royal Wines, the world's largest producer, importer and distributor of kosher wines.
