The GOAT reopened with a new menu (seems about the same as the old one) and No TV's.

With that being said, the new competition from "STREATS" https://yeahthatskosher.com/2018/04/breaking-kosher-gourmet-street-food-restaurant-coming-to-5towns-streats/

I don't see them lasting.....sad.

only if it's really as competitively priced as they claim it will be
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

Has anybody noticed any changes in KolSave since Pesach? Are they keeping the prices low, or notching it up?

Was there Friday. American cheese was 15.99. It used to be 10 something.

I noticed the Welch's grape juice shot up, but wasn't sure about the rest of store. Eggs also used to be cheaper. Both Milk and eggs were cheaper at Frankels this week.

The Vaad is blasting all over the web how they are so proud of their new camera policy.

Rumor has it that this is in response to a horrible violation which occurred locally over Pesach. Did anybody else hear and verify that a local eatery was caught serving chometz on Pesach?

There werent too many places open so I feel like this kind of rumor is dangerous. Although if true I think we have a right to know.

i can't imagine the vaad would allow a place with such an egregious violation to stay open

1 . I'd be shocked if they'd allow something like that pass. Probably just another 5t's juicy rumor

There's definitely something going on.  Not just rumors. Read story with comments. https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/general/1509476/vaad-hakashrus-five-towns-now-requires-food-establishments-to-install-cameras-with-full-access-to-mashgichim.html
The comments just point to rumors, there is no evidence that such a thing happened. Also, the comments make it sound like a chinese store was involved. I dont think wok tov or the stop chop and roll chinese was open so it would be chosen. If not true then spreading this rumor is really bad. Again, if it is true I would think that the hashgacha would be pulled and the vaad would publicize the event

I have heard of a specific restaurant that was caught with chometz on pesach. I did not hear about it from a rabbi on the vaad, but did hear about it from my Rabbi. I will ask him whether i can publicize.

You are obviously not familiar with Vaad policy. There have been quite a few violations by establishments under their supervisions. Some recently. Confirmed. None lost their certification. All they get is a little "potch", until next time...

will our food prices reflect the new cost of the cameras?

How can they not publicize which establishments have had chametz on pesach?

The same way they have never publicized any other violations in the past. Losing a client translates into losing $$

Can you provide a specific example of your implications here?
