Streats combines "street" and "eats," bringing kosher fare in a casual setting to Cedarhurst.

It's the newest eatery from Boris and Edward Safaniev. They also own the kosher Doma Land + Sea, a three-star restaurant that was one of Newsday's top 10 fine dining spots in 2017; and Cork & Slice, a kosher union of Italian and New American dishes. They're also in Cedarhurst.

Streats is by far the most informal and least expensive of the three. You select your meal at the counter and it will be delivered to your table in one of the two streamlined dining areas, under strands of Edison lights. Streats also does a lot of takeout. The decor is highlighted by an image of street artist Banksy's "Life us Beautiful" with Billie Holliday.

Starters include hummus, a frank topped with housemade chili, chicken-filled tortillas, and honey-glazed "popcorn" chicken. The house's "signature sandwich" is a Cubano made with baby chicken, fried beef, pickles, mustard and vegan "cheese." Salads take in a kale-quinoa-cauliflower-bok choy production and a "tree and vine" with spinach, farro, grapes, and raisins. The price range is $10 to $16.

Dishes such as chicken shawarma, shakshooka with fried eggs, a chicken burrito, brisket sandwich, and "bowl of Seoul" with beef and kimchee slaw, are $13 to $17. "Market plates," with selections including chicken, roasted salmon, steak, and falafel, are $16 to $23, and come with a side dish and a salad.

Streats is open five days starting at noon. It is closed on Friday and Saturday.
