K Pacho is a modern restaurant and tequila bar that offers traditional Mexican dishes and a unique atmosphere for its guests.
The restaurant is decorated with pictures, candles and various decorations to give K Pacho an ambiance only found at their location. And the space itself is huge. K Pacho has two dining rooms, a lounge area, a bar, and a lower level for catered events. In just the lounge and dining areas alone, K Pacho seats about 350 people.
Owned by Jay Grossman and Ray Sidhom, K Pacho brings in guests of all ages, ranging from college students, to adults in their late 40s, according to restaurant manager David Lau.
Some of K Pacho’s most popular dishes include K Pacho Chicken and the Chicken Enchiladas. The Crispy Banana Nutella Torta, and the Churros are popular dessert orders.
K Pacho is a little bit different from a lot of other restaurants.
“We always try to do specials every weeks from dessert to drink to shot specials,” explained Lau. “We’re always trying to give back to guests.”
Happy hour is everyday from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., which includes $5 margaritas, $4 draft beers, $4 bottle beers, and more.
Since the restaurant is located right next to Long Island Jewish Medical Center, K Pacho receives a lot of regular customers who work at the hospital. On Wednesdays, K Pacho holds a “Scrub Club Night” where any hospital employee receives a 25 percent discount.
“We accommodate a lot of the hospital crowd,” said Lau. “They come here a lot for happy hour.”
Thursday night is Ladies Night, where all ladies receive $5 margaritas for the whole night, including at the bar, lounge and dining room.
Not a lot of people know that K Pacho is a tequila bar. “We carry a huge variety of tequilas that not a lot of restaurants carry,” said Lau.
The restaurant wants its customers to know that tequila has much more to offer than just a shot with salt and lime. “Tequila is a very interesting drink,” said Lau. “If people come to K Pacho for their first experience, they should ask the server and bartender what their favorite tequila is here.”
Lau recommends trying the tequila Riazaul Reposado on the rocks in a margarita. “In my opinion it makes the best traditional margarita out there,” he said. “It makes an amazing drink. It’s well-priced, worth the money, and a great product.”
From Tuesday to Thursday, K Pacho is open from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. On Friday and Saturday, K Pacho is open until 12. The restaurant serves brunch on Sunday and is closed on Mondays.
K Pacho is all about pleasing their customers and will stay open later if they see that a lot of guests are still at the restaurant and enjoying themselves. The restaurant looks to make sure that their customers keep having a good time, and keep coming back for a good time.
K Pacho is at 1270 Union Tpke. in New Hyde Park. The phone number is 516-358-2222.

Last year Manhasset Park District Commissioner Mark Sauvigne was thinking about running for the office of Manhasset-Lakeville Fire & Water District Commissioner, but he sensed the timing wasn’t right. The district covers Manhasset and parts of Great Neck and north New Hyde Park. Commissioner terms are for three years.
“About a year ago I was approached by various members of the Manhasset Lakeville Fire Department, asking me if I would be interested in running for the office of the Fire/ Water
Commissioner,” said Sauvigne. “Although I was honored to be considered, I wasn’t sure the timing was right, so I put the decision off for a year. In the meantime, when the communication tower controversy occurred in October of 2013, I knew it was time to get involved.”

The students of Herricks High School were treated to a “Blast from the Past” as the Herricks High School Class of 1964 during this year’s Homecoming celebration. Approximately 60 members of the class of 1964 arrived at the high school on homecoming day for a tour of their alma mater. Most of these alumni had not been back to the high school since graduating 50 years ago.
All were impressed with the changes that have taken place and with the friendly demeanor of our high school students. One alumnus became teary eyed when he ventured out into the courtyard.

Despite a disappointing playoff loss against the Wantagh Warriors, Sewanhaka Indians Head Coach George Kasimatis, is pleased with his football team’s season.
“I’m proud of my team,” he said. “But you are never satisfied unless you win the whole thing.”
The Indians faced a big challenge this year, moving up into Conference II left them as the new kids on the block, unfamiliar with the teams they would be going against.
Kasimatis will have a tall task next year replacing graduating seniors, which made up most of his starting lineup. Kasimatis said most of the offensive line, such as Danny Gianotti, Adrian Gonzalez and Louis Segarra III, and the defensive line, such as Justin Alexandre, Peter LaTorre and Peter Militano are seniors, many of which have started multiple years for him.
