I & D Glatt (butcher) of Brooklyn fame is opening in J & M Glatt's location in West Hempstead (Long Island, NY). There is great news for people, who live in the West Hempstead area. Hopefully, this will reduce the shopping trips to Gourmet Glatt & Brach's that the Jeterfans have been making for the last number of years.
I went to I & D today. They have a much better selection of food than their predecessor. The takeout food looked good. I & D has some takeout Mideastern food in addition to the usual kosher takeout fare. From what I understand, I & D has an excellent reputation in Brooklyn, where its original store is located.
I live in West Hempstead and have been getting my meat delivered from I&D's Brooklyn shop for a few years (the owner is a WH resident and delivers to WH, the 5 towns and I think even the city). David Yizhaky, the owner is a very nice man and offers a great selection of fresh meat and fish. I understand that he is very open to suggestions from patrons on the grocery end since he is new to that area. This is wonderful news for the community and I hope he is well received.
