its not so pashut they’re done. Possibly Lakewood and/or Baltimore is but not necessarily 5towns or queens. Supposedly these stores are making profits just working things out now with debt etc so they’re not on their game right now
Not on their game when referring to Lakewood is an understatement. Management consistently changing and a meat department which was the only reason I stepped in there now empty

Yup, it's called Five Fifty. I haven't been there yet, but it's always packed if that says anything (although most new restuarants have a succesful initial period). I did look at their menu, and it was limited but looked interesting. That was one of their first days open so it may have changed since then.
I just moved in and this place (five fifty) was walking distance so we went with the family. seems like its not busy anymore since DOMA took over five towns. was told the old chef from chagall is there (i didnt like chagall, but liked this place). high class with prices comparable to the Loft (i.e. one notch below reserve cut/mike's but higher than abigaels). we got like 7 apps and loved em all (except the salmon carpaccio wasnt amazing/reminded me of a lox restaurant flavor though the mrs liked it and the seared sesame tuna was a bit boring). lamb belly was ridic, and the duck with figs was special but a small portion for $22. tuna tartare was good but its always good everywhere.
i got the veal chop for $58 which was perfect (though that was really a mike's bistro price). kids got huge burgers with fries for $24. they also had chicken fingers. too stuffed for desert.
If u have money to burn :) and want a really nice quiet dinner in the five towns, this place is pretty good and definitely better than the Loft imho, though not sure how long it will last not full on a sunday night...
menu is here without prices. http://www.greatkosherrestaurants.com/kosher_images/uploads/1784236095menu_550.pdf

There’s a store in Great Neck called Best Market that just opened kosher meat/fish Dept. inside a regular grocery store. All the Seasons meat guys from Queens are there.

Also, anyone know of like a shwarma place in five towns open late (like midnight)? whats my best bet for after 11?

I think it's the entrance next door. The only thing I had from there was a smoked fish platter which was really good if you like that kind of thing .

Just got pulled over by a Nassau County anti-semitic police offer and received seat belt ticket.

But I was wearing a seat belt!

I was wearing the seat belt, with the strap behind my back. He said since there is no code for wearing a seat belt improperly, he just has to write "no seat belt". And that's what I was ticketed for.

Does anybody know if there is a law how I need to wear my seat-belt? And if he is allowed to write "no seat-belt" if I really was?

The cops name is M. Witter

In all seriousness, I once got pulled for "not wearing my seatbelt" when I was wearing it, so I feel your pain. This was in Brooklyn on coney island ave and got it off after hiring a lawyer.

as an aside, you should never wear your seat belt like that (sorry for preaching)
