Holy Schnitzel, with its first location in Staten Island, is bringing its heavenly dishes to Cedarhurst. Opened just last week, Holy Schnitzel offers something for everyone with an expansive menu. Owner Ofeer Benaltaba says that the concept of his restaurant is to offer “fun food” and have a wide selection so that every customer will find something they like from Buffalo Wings to the salad bar.
“We have paninis, wraps, wings, all types of finger foods,” Benaltaba said. “We’re called Holy Schnitzel, so our main item is schnitzels. We have seven different types of schnitzels where the breadcrumbs and the seasoning are all prepared in different ways. We also have about 20 different types of sauces that we make from scratch. We’re a little bit off location, but we believe our food and service will help us prevail.”
On display first, Benatalba brought out a Holy Toasty ($11.99), a cornflake battered schnitzel with a couple of toppings, sautéed onions, lettuce, tomato and pickles. It is also topped with grilled pastrami as well as a few different sauces.
Holy Schnitzel is located at 688 Central Avenue in Cedarhurst. You can reach them at (516) 374-4659 or check them out on their website at Holyschnitzel.com. They are Glatt Kosher under the VAAD of The Five Towns and Far Rockaway and are open Sunday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., Friday from 11:00 a.m. to one hour before Shabbat and on Saturday from one hour after Shabbat until 11:00 p.m.
