Just throwing in what else I know: possibly Mr gold is gonna leave, or as my cousin who works there says ‘he won’t have a choice’

A partial investor I know is getting more involved to try and not have them close down- some of the stores which really are making a profit will stay while others (like Lakewood ) may go
Rubashkin is the meat supplier so that’s how his name is involved. (Q tho: didn’t some guy in Toronto buy out his co. when he went to jail? :o not sure really)
So that’s that

Various people who clearly know the situation. My sources would like to remain anonymous and I respect that.

Is that why their meat section has been so shvach recently and why they haven't produced any flyers in the past few weeks? I was there last night, and the meat section was almost empty! I thought that they had a good day, but now I see it's probably the opposite. Sad to see them go after investing in their renovation a few years back.

its not so pashut they’re done. Possibly Lakewood and/or Baltimore is but not necessarily 5towns or queens. Supposedly these stores are making profits just working things out now with debt etc so they’re not on their game right now

Not on their game when referring to Lakewood is an understatement. Management consistently changing and a meat department which was the only reason I stepped in there now empty

Yup, it's called Five Fifty. I haven't been there yet, but it's always packed if that says anything (although most new restuarants have a succesful initial period). I did look at their menu, and it was limited but looked interesting. That was one of their first days open so it may have changed since then.
I just moved in and this place (five fifty) was walking distance so we went with the family. seems like its not busy anymore since DOMA took over five towns. was told the old chef from chagall is there (i didnt like chagall, but liked this place). high class with prices comparable to the Loft (i.e. one notch below reserve cut/mike's but higher than abigaels). we got like 7 apps and loved em all (except the salmon carpaccio wasnt amazing/reminded me of a lox restaurant flavor though the mrs liked it and the seared sesame tuna was a bit boring). lamb belly was ridic, and the duck with figs was special but a small portion for $22. tuna tartare was good but its always good everywhere.
i got the veal chop for $58 which was perfect (though that was really a mike's bistro price). kids got huge burgers with fries for $24. they also had chicken fingers. too stuffed for desert.
If u have money to burn :) and want a really nice quiet dinner in the five towns, this place is pretty good and definitely better than the Loft imho, though not sure how long it will last not full on a sunday night...
menu is here without prices. http://www.greatkosherrestaurants.com/kosher_images/uploads/1784236095menu_550.pdf

I stopped reading at "nitch"

There’s a store in Great Neck called Best Market that just opened kosher meat/fish Dept. inside a regular grocery store. All the Seasons meat guys from Queens are there.
