The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

Commack Kosher Meats, a kosher market, deli and caterer, has closed. The shop in the Mayfair Shopping Center on Jericho Turnpike was Suffolk Countys only kosher butcher.

Kathy DeMott, a receptionist at the nearby Commack Jewish Center, confirmed that the store had closed. She noted that Commacks ShopRite sells a line of kosher meats but that, otherwise, observant Jews in the congregation had no choice but to drive to Nassau County.
