The Moriah School, now entering its 52nd year,
is one of the nation’s premier Jewish day schools.
Located in Englewood, Moriah serves more
than 700 students from across Bergen County.
Their Early Childhood Department begins
with a 2-year-old class and continues through
Kindergarten. Students are immersed in the
Hebrew language with Israeli and American
teachers, while they are introduced to the
chaggim, Shabbat, seasons, the calendar, reading
readiness, math and so much more. Continuing
until the 8th grade, Moriah’s dual curriculum,
prepares students to be life-long learners – both
in general and Jewish studies. The goal for a
Moriah student is that they can connect the dots
between Torat Yisrael, Am Yisrael and Medinat
Yisrael (Torah, the people and the land of Israel.)
Students graduate from Moriah to the top
Yeshiva High Schools in the area and to the Ivy
League colleges.

the Frisch school
The Frisch School is a private, co-ed Jewish high school with a demanding dual
curriculum of Judaic and college preparatory studies. Frisch seeks to foster the
development of young men and women whose commitment to Torah and mitzvot
permeates every aspect of their lives. Whether engaged in serious Torah study
or researching DNA replication; working on Israel activism or playing basketball;
exploring great works of literature or immersed in medieval Jewish thought, Frisch’s
students learn there is an opportunity for personal and spiritual growth at every turn.
Rebbeim and teachers help students grow as complete and well-rounded people in
a warm and supportive environment. Frisch is home to the arts track, an innovative
program for yeshiva high schools that blends Torah learning, music and visual arts,
and which recently added a professional pottery kiln for students to create their own
ceramics. This past year also saw greater focus on Israel advocacy and awareness
with a new position directing Israel education. At its core, Frisch remains dedicated
to its bedrock values of intellectual inquiry, spiritual growth, community and
opportunities to explore one’s passion.

Stefanie aims to capture true emotion especially in her

The tradition of jewelry
repair for Palisade Jewelers
goes back to 1947. The
family business, said owner
Ron Lieberman, has been
in Englewood since 2005,
and before that in Fort Lee
for more than two decades.
Palisade Jewelers
That tradition goes handin-hand with trust, which
has given Palisade Jewelers its longevity of nearly 70 years. The store handles myriad repairs, from
restringing pearl necklaces to major overhauls on precious watches. “I think the main reason we have
been in business so long is because we are trusted,” Mr. Lieberman said. “People trust us with their
valuable possessions. And we take great care to treat them right.”

Historically shoes have been a favorite for women.
Marc Hausman, owner of Footnotes, knows that
very well. In fact, there is much history to the family
business. It opened in 1946 at its first location
in Montclair; launched a Millburn store in 1959;
unveiled one in Deal in 1974, and then came to
Englewood more than three decades ago. The store
sells such high-end fashion brands, which include
Rag & Bone, Loeffler Randall, Stuart Weitzman, and
its exclusive brand, 275 Central, among others.
Mr. Hausman said there is more to come. The
Englewood store is undergoing a renovation this
summer “to keep moving forward and stay current.”

Savvy Chic Consignment Boutique
At Savvy Chic Consignment Boutique, it’s easy
to see why it has been voted best in Bergen
County for the last seven years. Ranging
from Chanel to Tory Burch, Savvy Chic has
an amazing selection of women’s clothing,
shoes, handbags, jewelry, and accessories.
Owner Randi Morein says her customers
compare their shopping experience to
treasure hunting. “They love finding unique
and interesting items.” Everything that
comes in is in pristine condition. Each item
is inspected before it goes out on the floor
Savvy Chic Consignment Boutique
and most of the items are new or in near new
condition. It is not unusual to find items with
their tickets still on from the store where they were originally bought. At Savvy Chic, you can find a
Chanel handbag with the tags still on it, Christian Louboutin shoes never worn before, or a Carolina
Hererra gown for a third of what it retailed for. Names like Gucci, Dior, Tahari, Nanette Lepore, and
more are waiting for the smart woman who doesn’t want to spend a fortune to look like one. Highend purses are another big attraction.

At Noah’s Ark, the pastrami, cut from the fatty belly of the

hot on fresh rye bread. The fat melts away in the process,
leaving the flavor, says owner Noam Sokolow, adding the
pastrami is one of the most popular items on the menu.
“People come for our pastrami sandwiches from all over,” he
said. “People love a good pastrami sandwich.”

It’s in the juicy

up at Gotham Burger.
The first thing in
making a great patty,
said chef-owner Avi
Gotham Burger
Roth, is to use the best
blend of the freshest,
finest, proprietary meats. And at Gotham Burger you’ll find
burgers to satisfy all cravings. Most popular is the classic
Gotham Burger served on a toasted brioche bun, topped
with Gotham sauce, shredded lettuce, sliced tomato, pickle
chips and caramelized red onions, followed by the Brisket
Burger, made from ground brisket. But don’t stop there.
There are a plethora of others, including a Breakfast Burger
Bonaza, featuring egg, beef fry and pareve cheese; a Lasso

“This is what makes our pizza the best, the

Chopstix

Teaneck Doghouse

Sammy’s

There was a time when
Chinese food wasn’t kosher.
That has changed with
establishments like Chopstix
in Teaneck, a takeout eatery.
“We work hard to make sure
our customers are getting
the best,” said Elie Katz, coowner with Uri Herzog and
chef Peter. Of course, there
are accommodations. The
restaurant substitutes veal
for pork, for instance. But
Katz said some 40 percent
Chopstix
of his customers do not
keep kosher — they come
for the quality. A best seller is General Tso’s chicken. Because
every dish is made fresh for the customer, almost every order
can be customized for different diets from gluten-free to sugarfree or to include no oil. Mr. Katz said that the restaurant has
added Asian-fusion dishes such as Pad Thai and Mango Chicken
to its offerings. Its Nine-Day Menu, Mr. Katz said, has even been
written about in The New York Times.

The Teaneck Doghouse is a one-of-a-kind eatery in Bergen
County where you can catch as much sports as you like on
28 screens and grab a hot dog or juicy kosher hamburger
and wash it down with a kosher beer. The multiple screens
allow for viewing all games all the time. The menu is classic
sports bar – hot dogs, burger, wings chicken, nachos, spicy
all-beef chili, fried pickles, pulled BBQ brisket, sliders, fries and
more. The restaurant also does some work for you pairing its
extensive selection of brews with its hot dogs, burgers, and
salads. You can also bring the family in, anytime.

The bagel, the most quintessential of Jewish delicacies, also
seems to be the most simple. Not so fast, said Yossi Niazoff,
owner of Sammy’s New York Bagels, Pizza and Coffee. There’s
more to the bagel than meets the eye. You have to start with
the best ingredients and the bagels must be rolled by hand,
boiled in a kettle, and then baked, “the old-fashioned way,” he
said, which is just what Sammy’s has been doing for years to
create the tastiest and chewiest bagel around. “We don’t cut
any corners to make our famous best round bagels,” he said.

It’s been called Jewish penicillin and Ashkenazi ambrosia. Matzo
ball soup is an all-time favorite – whether you are Jewish or
not. The folks at Kosher Nosh Deli Restaurant in Glen Rock have
perfected the fluffy matzo balls that float in a golden broth
redolent with herbs and vegetables. It is one of the most popular
items on the menu, said owner Haim Peer. Perhaps the airiness of
the matzo balls has to do with a special cooking technique that
helps them become so light. “The matzo balls are always nice and
fluffy and always good,” Mr. Peer said.

mouthwatering, fresh-baked goods in Cedar Market’s

“Our motto is ‘Fine Foods. Great Savings,’ and we really
try to stick to that,” says owner Jeff Hollander. “The
relationships we build with our suppliers enable us to translate that into more affordable pricing for the consumer.” The store, which
offers free delivery to many locations in North Jersey, dishes customers their very own loyalty card, which leads to cash-back rewards
for its shoppers. “We are here to give to the growing community,” Hollander said. “Each week, we are focused on providing great savings
in every department, so shoppers can get more out of their weekly shopping.” In 2016, Cedar Market had a 1st Place finish in multiple
READERS’ CHOICE categories, including Kosher Market, Butcher and Gourmet Market. “These awards are a testament to our staff ’s
commitment to give 110% each and every day,” said Hollander. “Our employees’ strive to ensure each shopper has a wonderful shopping
experience is the true secret behind Cedar Market.”

Ida Martin has created a sanctuary for the gluten-free diner. She
and her staff take such diligent pains to keep gluten away from
those with sensitivities, that the restaurant is even equipped with
a separate gluten-free oven. Other separation precautions are
strictly adhered to. But the absence of gluten in no way means
the absence of taste or creativity in the dishes that are served up
in this restaurant. From soups to appetizers, such as tiny lamb
meatballs, and sesame crusted tuna, to entrees, including grilled
wild mahi mahi, duo of duck and rack of lamb, just to name a few,
these menu items could inspire the uninitiated to eat gluten-free.

hudson Water Club

axia Taverna

Among the highlights of the Hudson Water Club are its
sweeping views of the Hudson River. Combine that vista
with its elegant inside, snazzy terrazzo tile, vaulted ceilings,
and floor to ceiling windows, and coming to the Hudson
Water Club is a great experience – even before ordering a
meal. “It’s a little like being on a tropical vacation with the
gorgeous views of the water and mountains,” said manager
Monica Keeperman. Then you order the meal – contemporary
American cuisine with a strong emphasis on seafood by CIA
trained executive chef Michael Dobias, who focuses on local
ingredients and features seasonal items at their peak – and
Hudson Water Club is a true winner.

AXIA is an experience in elevated Greek dining. Launched
in 2006 in Tenafly, the restaurant give diners a sublime
experience in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Executive
Chef Alex Gorant modernizes the dining experience by
grouping dishes into Small Plates and Big Plates. Traditional
Greek meze, seafood bites, meatballs traditional Greek
spreads with pita bread are great starters for sharing, along
with a family style Greek salad. Big Plates include standout
fish dishes, either grilled or pan roasted, incredibly tender
roasted free-range chicken, pastichio, moussaka and the
nightly specials from Chef Alex. General Manager Tim
Vlahopoulos makes sure everything runs smoothly at the
restaurant and customers have come to expect his warm
presence as they are greeted with a smile and a handshake.
Axia features a full bar and sommelier-chosen wines. Tim
takes great pride in the Greek varietals, which are one-third
of the 360 bottles offered. Two dozen wines are offered by
the glass. Tim handles all requests for parties on Axia’s upper
level, as well as off-site catered parties. AXIA Taverna is open
for lunch Monday through Friday, and open for dinner every
night of the week. In Greek, AXIA means “worthy” and this
Tenafly restaurant certainly lives up to the name.

Blue Moon Mexican Café

Kailish indian Cuisine

“I’ll put our guacamole up against anybody’s,”
said Howie Felixbrod of the Blue Moon
Mexican Café in Englewood, and apparently
readers agree. Of course, there’s more to
Mexican food than guacamole. Felixbrod
cited as a favorite the steak fajita, which
gains its zest from a “secret” marinade passed
down from chef to chef. The Englewood café
is one of four Blue Moons — the others are

Peter’s Fish Market

Coach house

For nearly 40 years, Peter’s Fish Market has provided a
wide variety of fresh seafood, for both retail and wholesale
customers. Small enough to care, large enough to compete,
Peter’s Fish Market provides a fresh product, at a competitive
price. Quality and service continue to provide the foundation
for success, said the owner Steven Sclafani who works with
his father, also Steven. “We try to get our fish from the water
to the showcase,” with daily shipments of fresh fish. The
owners said that anything a customer purchased in their
store they would serve in their own homes.
86 Godwin Ave., Midland Park · 201-444-3331
www.petersfishmarket.com

Take warm decor, add top-notch ingredients, solid
portions, and reasonable prices, and you have a
delicious place to dine. That’s how owners George
and Vivien Pappas sum up their success at the Coach
House in Hackensack. With delicious omelets and
other breakfast favorites served all day, and comfort
foods such as pot roast and brisket, as well as fresh
seafood such as salmon and sole, Coach House has
something for everyone. A fully loaded salad bar
featuring more than 30 items comes complimentary
with most dinner entrees, and the New York
cheesecake is “second to none.” George Papas said
that in an age of frozen, processed, mass-produced
food, it’s good to come to his restaurant for some good
authentic and wholesome dishes.

lillian lee salon
Beauty outside and beauty inside is the motto of salon
owner and stylist Lillian Lee whose eponymous Teaneck
salon is constantly abuzz with women having their hair, or
their wigs, styled, shaped, cut, colored and pampered. “We
genuinely care how our clients feel,” said Ms. Lee. “Our clients
will definitely look great when they leave here, but we also
want them to leave feeling very good about themselves.”
Ms. Lee has been in the hairstyling business for a quarter of
century, and she has been at her present Teaneck location
for 12 years. One of her crowning glories is her non-for-profit
charity that she founded, Do Wonders. Do Wonders donates
free wigs to women and girls who are in chemotherapy. “I
am very grateful for the support that I’ve received from the
community,” Ms. Lee said. “If not for the support from the
community, and the Orthodox community, I would not have
been able to start Do Wonders.”

Pumpkin & Bean
How do you get little ones, who may be squirming and
crying, to get their hair trimmed? You put them in little cars
that double as chairs, give them some screen distraction and
make sure that the person with the scissors is kind, patient
and skillful. That formula has worked at Pumpkin & Bean
since it opened in 2006, said owner Claire Bader. “Our hair
stylists have a lot of patience and are very good with kids,”
she said. In addition to haircuts for boys and girls, stylists will
also do braiding and up-dos, and even will style an American
Girl doll that might accompany a young client. For first-time
haircuts, Ms. Bader said, the youngsters leave with their new
‘do, a certificate and a lock of their hair.

said Dr. Harvey Gross of Englewood, “and you
have to enjoy dealing with people.” A family
doctor must have a perspective on the makeup

since 1984. From complicated car woes, to mundane fixes,
and routine maintenance work, the community continues
to trust owner Jimmy Moutafis and son, John, with their
domestic and foreign, new and old cars. “People come to us
and they trust us,” said John Moutafis. “We are thankful for
all the support that we have gotten from the community.”

great!” said Lydia. “He is happy to share his ideas with
both buyers and sellers.” Most recently Robert was
honored with EBCBOR’s Good Neighbor Award for
his work with the Ed Lucas Foundation for the Blind
