Skyview Glatt pulls off a feat that is often fatal for many restaurants: catering to a variety of palates by offering a culturally exotic and varied menu. Jewish deli, Persian, classic American staples - all are perfected, with just the right amount of seasoning on savory kabobs, a sprinkling of Persian spice on tasty rices, a fluffiness captured within a generous matza ball delicately floating in a slow-simmered broth.
The Persian fare competes - and tops - that of Skyview's closest rival, the chain of Colbehs scattered throughout Long Island and in Manhattan. For an after-dinner drink, enjoy a soothing Persian tea.
For lunch, the burger deluxe is a perfect prelude to a more lighter dinner at home: served with freshly grilled onions and European-style freshly-cut fries, it offers a healthy smattering of seasoned taste and packs a juicy bite.
For a grab-and-go bite, the deli selection includes classic Jewish stapes, cut thin as to promote the melt-in-your-mouth texture. The bread is fresh, and the sandwiches easily edge out against Riverdale's limited selection of Kosher deli.
The Middle Eastern/Israeli cuisine is not to be discounted, either: try a warm falafel in a pita, made with fresh vegetables and freshly prepared hummus; or try the schnitzel, crisp on the outside and delicately juicy with every bite of the white-meat sandwich.
Pros: diverse menu, excellent service, delicious recipes, warm env
Cons: none to be found - or tasted!
