Local restaurants prepare for Passover season

The holiday of Passover is approaching, Rare Steakhouse and Shemtov’s Pizza are getting ready for the busy season of the holiday.

Brian Sandhous is the owner of Shemtov’s Pizza and Rare Steakhouse located on Miami Beach, the restaurants are a block away from each other.

Before Sandhaus bought Shemtov’s Pizza (located at 514 Arthur Godfrey Road, Miami Beach), the restaurant was a fast food pizza store. Now it's been transformed by Sandhous and his staff, into a first class pizza restaurant with fast results and fantastic food.

Sandhaus also opened Rare Steakhouse which is a first class Kosher meat restaurant located at 468 Arthur Godfrey, Miami Beach.

Rare Steakhause is hosting Chometz Ball sponsored by L'Chaim Kosher Vodka and hosted by Miami Magazine on April 16 at 9:00 p.m. through April 17, at 3:00 a.m.

On Passover, one can’t eat Chometz (leavened) foods for eight days. This event is meant for one to come and eat all the Chemetz they want and have fun with friends in a party atmosphere.

Rare Steakhause is offering a deal of 2 for 1 drinks until 10 p.m., appetizers are available.

For this years Passover Chol Hamoed (intermediate days) Shemtov’s Pizza is creating “Beyond” which will be next door, they will serve a full menu of Kosher for Passover dishes made by selected chiefs.

"Beyond" by Shemtovs, hosted a Passover tasting on April 12, where they gave a chance for customers to try their new Passover menu such as pizza, crepes, deserts and milkshakes.

Jason Morgan (a taster at the Beyond Passover tasting) said, “I guess they keep coming out every year with newer and newer ingredients and stuff that you can use, because this tasted and felt like Chometz to me! (But it wasn't!)”
