New Kosher Drive-In Outdoor Restaurant on Long Island by RAM Caterers

Old Westbury Jewish Center

UPDATE: This pop-up has closed.

RAM Caterers of Long Island has turned its catering hall facility (the beautiful Old Westbury Hebrew Congregation) into a drive-in restaurant with tons of outdoor seating. This is a great initiative by an excellent caterer with a beautiful and spacious outdoor area. Old Westbury Jewish Center is host to many kosher affairs and events, but during COVID-19, it’s quite innovative for them to use their outdoor space to continue to host guests so they can bring in some income as well.

RAM’s Drive-In Restaurant provides ample seating and parking for dozens of families to all eat within safe “social distancing” distances from each other.

While RAM recently launched to-go meals that are meant to be stocked up in the freezer, this new outdoor restaurant will be serving freshly made food as meals, so the menu is set up to provide diners with a full meal: entree, salad, and sides under one price.

RAM has issued information and protocols regarding this new outdoor restaurant, which ensures the safety of their staff and guest, over here. This info included protocols in case of inclement weather (pick up is available), and requests that sick family members do not attend this restaurant, even in the outdoor space.

See the video below to showcase how much space they have and how their waiters deliver you food. Waiters are in golf carts and deliver to your picnic benches.

Open Sundays 12pm – 8pm, and Monday through Thursday 3pm – 8pm. No reservations required. This outdoor restaurant plans to be open throughout the summer; there is no clear end date as to when this will close. Stay tuned.

Ram Caterers  is under the supervision of the Star-K.

Can’t say how impressed I was tonight at the new @ramcaterers Drive-In outdoor restaurant on #LongIsland. [Note: I was invited by RAM to check out their restaurant and report back to you guys] The food was excellent: Burger may be a top 5 burger. It’s huge and flavorful, served with tons of sides. (Every “meal” comes with a ton of side options). My other two faves: the Lamb Chops and the Dino Ribs. The side fries, onion rings, and corn on the cob were great and the kids loved their food as well, including the desserts. Needless to say, this isn’t a typical restaurant. The prices are higher, but you get much more food and better quality food too. Also, they’ve figured out a great way to use a massive parking lot: set up about 100 picnic tables and have everyone park in between each other to naturally enforce social distancing. With that, people have been reserving many tables for Sheva brachot, birthdays, and other gatherings.
