Video message from R’ Scholom Raskin:
It all boils down to kosher vs. non kosher…
One of the long-running Jewish-owned stores in Crown Heights has reached the final round in an online competition to be labeled as a Brooklyn favorite.
Raskin’s Fish Market on Kingston Avenue is currently tied with Junior’s restaurant as the 2 final competitors in the “Brooklyn Brackets: Favorite Neighborhood Institution” of the website, DNAinfo New York.
“This kosher fish market has been serving fresh seafood to customers since 1961 when its owner, Scholom Raskin, first opened for business,” the description reads. “Between ice beds full of fish and refrigerators stocked with prepared foods — including Raskin’s own brand of gefilte fish — customers line up to order, careful to avoid slipping on melting ice and fish slime. It’s part of the charm!”
In recent weeks, COLlive.com readers and Facebook fans have been keeping Raskin’s in the lead. Now, with final voting ending Wednesday night, Raskin’s is barely in the lead and needs your click.
