Ole Gourmet in Florida

I was just on the Chabad of South Florida's website and it said that Ole Gourmet was no longer kosher. Does anyone have any information on that? I am hoping it is just a matter of them switching hashgachot, not that they are actually trief.

    Unfortunately, they are no longer in business at all. :( It's a real shame!

          I drove by at about 6pm on Thursday night and the lights were off. You may want to call before you go.

            My sister went by last week and I went by aroiund 6pm tonight (Sunday) and it was dark. We heard they went out of business. Check out Cohen's Deli in Clermont. It's not too far from Disney and has Chabad certification.

              I spoke to the daughter of the person who owned it last, they said it was hard keeping the restaurant open, so they had to close down.

      Following up: They did have certification with Chabad and Gobor. I checked with my rabbi on Friday and he said he would check with Gobor.

        okay. Ole did go not kosher. They are rekashering the kichen and going back under Gobor supervison. Not sure if they are planning on Chabad or not.

            Gobor - Greater Orlando Board of Rabbi's. I'm not sure who is doing the certifying.

        No idea. I tried to do an order on the Sunday Oct 18th and they were closed. I can try and stop by there next week and report back.
