Talia’s Steakhouse & Bar, the premier Glatt Kosher restaurant located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, NYC, is offering pre-paid, prix fixe, Glatt Kosher Rosh Hashanah lunch and dinner menu options – all inclusive. The energy, romantic ambiance, and Glatt Kosher gourmet cuisine at Talia’s Steakhouse & Bar make it the ideal spot to celebrate Rosh Hashanah. It is non-communal dinner with private tables for you and your family and friends.

Please be advised, according to current NYC mandate, you must show proof of vaccination to sit indoors. If you do not plan on carrying your proof  with you on the holiday, please email us a copy of each member of your table’s (over 12 years of age) vaccine card and photo ID (you can block any sensitive info) to, or you may text it to 917-217-3680. Otherwise, we will have to seat you outside.

To avoid all of these procedures, we highly recommend that, weather permitting, you should choose to sit outside. This way, you are not obligated to present your vaccine card.

Bring your friends and family and enjoy Talia’s Yom Tov meals. Since Jewish law allows cooking on Yom Tov, which doesn’t fall on Shabbat, you can indulge in a sizzling steak right off the grill while sipping mixed drinks from Talia’s full bar such as vodka cranberry, apple or chocolate martinis, cosmopolitans, etc.  When dining at Talia’s, Rosh Hashanah dinner includes challah roll, apple and honey, grape juice for kiddush and unlimited soda, coffee or tea. Deliveries will include challah and grape juice.

What is Rosh Hashanah?

Rosh Hashanah (Hebrew: ראש השנה, literally “head of the year”), is the Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashanah is a two-day celebration which begins on the first day of Tishrei, the first month of the Jewish calendar. It is the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, and their first actions toward the realization of mankind’s role in G d’s world.

Rosh Hashanah emphasizes the special relationship between G d and humanity. Each year on Rosh Hashanah, “all inhabitants of the world pass before G d like a flock of sheep,” and it is decreed in the heavenly court “who shall live, and who shall die . . .
who shall be impoverished, and who shall be enriched; who shall fall and who shall rise.”

Rosh Hashanah is the day we proclaim G d King of the Universe. The central observance of Rosh Hashanah is the sounding of the shofar, the ram’s horn, which also represents the trumpet blast of a people’s coronation of their king. The cry of the shofar is also a call to repentance, for Rosh Hashanah is also the anniversary of man’s first sin and his repentance thereof, and serves as the first of the “Ten Days of Repentance” which culminate in Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

Rosh Hashanah customs include sounding the shofar and eating symbolic foods such as apples dipped in honey to symbolize our desire for a sweet year. The common greeting on Rosh Hashanah is “Shanah Tovah”, which, in Hebrew, means “Have a good year”. Rosh Hashanah occurs 163 days after the first day of Passover (Pesach).
