Kenny & Ziggy’s presents Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur
For the first time in its 17-year history, Kenny & Ziggy New York Delicatessen Restaurants will keep the doors open during the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur holidays, offering special menus for evening and breaking fast meals.
These special holiday meals are part of a Harvey flood relief program Kenny & Ziggy’s launched September 1, in which 5 percent of all proceeds, including those from catering sales and from both restaurants, go to the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston. As much of these donations as possible will go to the hard-hit Meyerland and Bellaire areas.
For Rosh Hashanah, which begins at sundown Wednesday, September 20, both restaurant locations will be offering a three-course, multi-choice menu for $40 per person plus tax and gratuity (for children 12 and younger there is a special kids menu for $15 plus tax and gratuity). The menu’s first and main courses offer dozens of traditional new year dishes, including brisket, matzo balls, stuffed cabbage, Hungarian goulash, chopped liver, Roumanian steak and wild salmon. There are also an assortment of side dishes like noodle kugel, kasha varniska, carrot souffle and egg barley farfel. The third course offers a variety of the restaurant’s popular desserts.
There will be two seatings for the Rosh Hashanah dinner, one from 5-6:30 pm and the second from 7-9 pm. On Sept. 20, the two restaurants will open at regular hours in the morning but close at 2 pm then reopen for the 5 pm seating.
For Yom Kippur on Sunday, September 30, the restaurants will open at 5:30 pm with an extensive a la carte menu of traditional dishes, mostly dairy and vegetarian, for breaking the fast. This meal is open seating and reservations are not required.
