I just drove there, and they are closed. I then called there number and it said that they were closing, I was surprised. I was just there a week ago, and they didn't say anything. Does anyone know anymore? I will miss it, I liked it much better than a lot of other butchers in the area.

        Did you ever find out what happened, and where David is?

          After I read the article in the Jewish Journal, it didn't seem that I neede to verify the truth. The story is that thay were outside the Jewish area, and people preferred to walk to stores, or at least not drive even short distances out of the way, especially during the recession. Evidently, if the produce section were better, it would have drawn customers, but bottom line is that they were losing money and closed. A few years ago, I approached them to do Smokin'! in a corner of their store with a couple of tables, but they decided to enlarge their cheese selction there instead. I think having the restaurant there would have benefitted both of us, but now we're both closed. Anyway, I never asked David what he was doing these days, but I assume he's coping pretty well.

            Thanks, I read the article too. However, I would love to know where David is. I would appreciate it if you would ask him. TIA

              If I run into him at Shaarey Zedek, I'll be happy to do so. Problem is that I don't daven there Shabbos mornings, and he doesn't daven where I daven. MAybe I can get his home phone (which I obviousl don't currently have).

          Kosher Club is now Western Kosher. It has been fully redone.
