Don’t Pass Over Ben’s Catered Holiday Dinner

The Ben’s Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant & Caterers’ motto has long been that holidays should be a time to kick-back and relax with family, rather than spending long hours cooking and cleaning. Celebrate freedom, and the story of the exodus from Egypt, with the company’s famous Catered Holiday Dinner for 10, featuring mouthwatering gefilte fish, delicious matzo ball soup, fresh-cut coleslaw and more.

According to Jewish tradition, it is forbidden to eat leavened food products, such as bread, because, in their rush to escape from Egypt, the Jews were unable to wait for bread to rise. Instead, they ate matzo, a non-leavening cracker-like food, which has become synonymous with Jewish culture, and its holidays.

In recognition of this custom, Ben’s Complete Holiday Dinner for 10 features 12 matzo balls, along with 10 pieces of gefilte fish, one-quart of chopped liver, four quarts of chicken soup, and macaroons for dessert. The package, which costs $349.90, also includes a choice of three entrées — five roast chickens, a whole roast turkey or four pounds of sliced brisket —and two side dishes, such as broccoli almandine, sweet potato pudding and much more.

Ben’s Friends Preferred Patrons who purchase this complete Holiday Dinner by Sunday, March 25, 2018 will also receive four “Buy-One-Get-One-Free” on-app coupons; a total savings of over $100.

All seven locations are also offering “Holiday Dinner Extra Goodies,” which can be pre-ordered to ensure that every table is full. For those looking to bring a dish – whether it’s an appetizer, dessert, or another signature dish, Ben’s takeout counter has everything you need to complement a  holiday dinner.

In observance of the holiday, all Ben’s Kosher Deli locations will close at 3 p.m. on Friday, March 30, and will re-open Sunday, April 8 for normal business hours.

Ben’s Store-Cured Corned Beef Has its Patrons Feeling Lucky this St. Patrick’s Day

You don’t need to be Irish to feel lucky this St. Patrick’s Day! From March 1 until St. Patrick’s Day, on Saturday, March 17, all seven of Ben’s Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant & Caterers locations, will be reveling in the company’s annual March corned beef celebration. With special combos including sandwiches and traditional corned beef, cabbage and potato platters, it’s really Ben’s proprietary corned beef curing process that truly sets the company apart from other restaurants and delis.

“Unlike many other restaurants, we use only fresh, Kosher USDA choice briskets,” Ben’s founder/owner Ronnie Dragoon states. “We pickle the briskets in each store using an exclusive Ben’s pickling blend and an old-fashioned two-week curing process.” Once curing is complete, Ben’s highly skilled chefs cook the corned beef daily as needed, ensuring a fresh and delicious experience for Ben’s guests.

Initially chosen as a more affordable substitute for bacon, corned beef and cabbage became a tradition among Irish-American immigrants. Its connection to St. Patrick’s Day is the result of Irish-Americans having commonly served the meal during various family and holiday celebrations. Interestingly, what Americans today know as traditional corned beef actually stems from Jewish culture, as Irish immigrants once primarily purchased their meat from Kosher butchers.

It is that traditional eastern European style that Ben’s aims to emulate in its cooking process. “Yes, we cure our own corned beef,” Dragoon adds, “but, don’t forget, our chicken soup cures everything else!”

While Ben’s Corned Beef Celebration Specials only run from March 1 through St. Patrick’s Day, its tasty store-cured, freshly-prepared corned beef is available all year long. In addition to sandwiches and platters, guests can enjoy fresh corned beef in salads, omelets or sliced by the pound to take home.

Pick up some perfectly-seasoned wings, juicy hot dogs or famous cold-cut sandwiches so all you have to focus on is who’s scoring the next touchdown.

In celebration of playoff season, and the impending “Big Game” on Sunday, February 4, Ben’s has put together several ways to celebrate, with options for parties of all sizes. From party rooms and big screen televisions available in various locations, to a full array of delicious catering and mouthwatering grab-and-go takeout at every location, Ben’s is bound to make this playoff season easy to digest.
