Yes.  I haven't had Izzy's yet, but I'm certain that there is way better nonkosher brisket. 

For example, is Izzy's even using a wood burning offset smoker? I assume they're probably using gas, seeing as how they're in the middle of CH.

There's also way better nonkosher beef to start with.

Also, my own smoked brisket is probably better, but I'll let you know once I hopefully make it in in a couple weeks.



First, please invite me to the tasting.

Second, he uses wood.

The food there (every day) isn't worth the bad service.

In this specific instance, we had an experience there (with the food!), for which I wouldn't go back. But the aforementioned manager enticed me to give them another shot, and this time the bad Israeli service and the co-owner backpedaling on the manager's promises of freebies and making me feel like a loser for claiming what I was promised, confirmed my initial gut-feeling that we shouldn't give them another shot.

Koshering, for one.
One thing i can say blind about yourself, that you don't know what good food is , no matter the service,  there is not left too many good kosher restaurants in nyc , so called new fancy restaurants with high end prices ,selling rubbish for high prices ....sad

I love this post

Stating facts when he is assuming his toughts in one sentence

Btw i am not a fan of smoked meat

But as far as i know and heard is izzys food made as the highest possibility poosible to do smoked meats ,its wood and the whole 9 yards

Hos food is the best quality in kosher industry, and he has a hard time getting enough

Might be yours is better,  you should have confidence in yourself...

I just never had a bad experience. Definitely not with the food.

It wasn't intentional, but it's also something after which most people won't return to the restaurant. I'm not going to say anymore.

The added salt can be an advantage.

Lol

There is always lines there , and doing tons of catering, the store can't do more business what they doing now

I wish he opens up soon another branch

In fact it have opened a few other so called kosher smokehouses in ny and no one even picked up to be getting to his toe nail

I have tried all , i would rather eat fast food then eating their spoiled food

There is no tricks , if izzys has customers from all over the world coming and trying him out ,there is something to it , you can't fool people when it comes to food

I highly disagree. Dan is a foodie* and doesn't always praise fad/fancy restaurants just because they are popular.

I was told by some who would. IIRC I've seen it in some cookbooks as well. On the other hand the meat itself is lower quality.

I edited my quote to reflect what I'm responding to. I completely disagree when you say "there are no tricks" or that "you can't fool people". A big part of the restaurant business is about brand/image/perception. We see it all the time, a restaurant gets popular, the food/service quality goes down, and they go out of business. A perfect example would be what's going on recently at Reserve Cut (I'm saying that based on multiple negative reviews on DDF), if things continue this way it'll hurt their business.
