Why not ask him yourself?

When he and KFI approve something, its done after very extensive research by rabanim that have been paskening for years. He's not some kollel guy whos been studying Halacha for 2 years and thinks he knows everything.

No one is forcing you to eat there if you dont want to.

No problem. IINM he does not hold automatically of Machpud places.
The chidush with Lechem Basar is that it was vetted by the KFI standards and approved.

Why is that a chiddush? Not attacking, asking.

Read the WIKI or the first posts.
The KFI holds by Kasrus standards that not every Hechsher or restaurant measures up to.   
When the KFI evaluates a place and deems it worthy of the set standards, they certify it as such which gives people the peace of mind to eat there.

You heard this from R' Weiner yourself? R' Moshe says that Ashkenazim can eat it, why would they argue?
