    Any chance of THIS Izzy's serving any CHK Chicken?

    Any chance of THIS Izzy's serving any CHK Chicken?

    I get it and understand that at the BBQ IZZY’s, and maybe even also at the Mexican-menu IZZY’s, not all cuts of beef, veal, lamb, etc. are always consistently available with the CHK. But this is a CHICKEN restaurant. CHK chicken IS consistently available, baruch Hashem. While the other G-d-fearing shochtim are surely fine ones, how about a little Lubavitcher pride, and a tip of the hat to this Lubavitcher community’s own shechitah of glatt kosher chicken, which many if not most frum locals also prefer? OR at least use SOME kind of Lubavitcher shechitah for at least SOME of… Read more »

    but just wanted to point out there is no such thing as glatt chicken, the concept of glatt doesn’t apply to chicken

    Any chance they will consider those people that have to watch their diet and serve lowfat/sugar free chicken and side dishes. Plenty of people have high cholesterol and diabetes in this community.

    I highly doubt this restaurant is intended for those people. This is fried chicken….

    Make Izzy's BBQ Lubavitch Shechita

    Make Izzy's BBQ Lubavitch Shechita

    It’s a shame to put it kindly that most of the meat at Izzy’s BBQ is not Lubavitch Shechita. Maybe they can improve this to upgrade the kedusha and do what the Rebbe would want in his shechuna. Or at least maybe they can have a few items on the menu such as a BBQ brisket sandwich that are always Lubavitch Shechita. Good luck with the new chicken place. I’m glad to see someone wrote in the comments here that all the chicken will be Lubavitch. B”H. I don’t go to Izzy’s BBQ because it’s not Lubavitch but i’m looking… Read more »

    Looks good

    Looks like it will be good. No problem to request certain shchita, healthier options etc. nicely- no need to be negative to try to “convince” others of anything- that’s just a good rule for life. Anyway whining, complaining, being negative is highly unlikely to get you what you want, ever. Another note- while it’s great that the chicken is Lubavitch, I don’t know many people who won’t eat other good hechsherim when eating out. If that is your derech, wonderful, but knowing that so many don’t follow that could help you understand why it’s not so common to find, and… Read more »

    If someone does something new, people should try to be positive before going into the “ok but it’s not this and that…”

    The chicken discussion, above, isn't "whining"

    If, as you say, eating other “good hechsherim” is fine, then pointing out the shechita is just that, pointing it out as a point of info. It sounds like you feel a bit of a twinge that someone else has a different shechita preference than yours; otherwise why would you exaggerate the above expressed preferences as anything less than humble and polite? (Unless you feel that if it’s a request, it’s already something less than humble and polite.) I don’t know if you noticed, but a lot of people have clicked “up” at the news that the chicken will be… Read more »

    It’s great that Izzy’s fried chicken has lubavitch chicken but Izzy’s bbq is also great. It brought many Jews from all stripes to come to Crown Heights and gave them a very positive impression, many for the first time…the word ‘shame’ should not have been used.
