Re: “East Coast Deli, Copper Kettle Brewing, Kangaroo Coffee

I thought I had made it clear I was talking about kosher delis in NYC. I did not think one could get matzoh ball soup or knishes anywhere else. However, since I left NYC many decades ago, a new category has popped up, called "kosher style" which is not really kosher but features many traditional Jewish dishes. Katz's Delicatessen is listed in Wikipedia as a "kosher style (not a kosher)" restaurant.

Before the emergence of "kosher style" delis, I am guessing, one would have had to go to a German deli to get a reuben sandwich (or a ham and cheese on rye, for that matter). I do not know for sure because I never did see one on any menu when I lived there (which may be only because I was never in the right place).

Re: “East Coast Deli, Copper Kettle Brewing, Kangaroo Coffee

I think you are confusing a NY Deli with a Kosher NY Deli. I too am from (upstate) NY, and grew up on Rubens at our NY Deli. A Kosher deli is where you get only Kosher Jewish foods. My mom is from Brooklyn and loved their Jewish bakeries along with their deli.

Re: “East Coast Deli, Copper Kettle Brewing, Kangaroo Coffee

I grew up in New York City, but I never heard of a Reuben Sandwich before I moved to Atlanta. No New York deli serving Matzoh Ball Soup and Knishes would ever serve a Reuben Sandwich, as the mixing of meat and dairy products in the same meal is not kosher.

Re: “Ivywild School as a whole exceeds expectations

Just got back from Ivywild on a Friday. Honestly, what they have here is a gold mine. Great food, great drinks, and an atmosphere that is welcoming, but not fabricated. Being that the school is old, and that the brewery fits in perfectly with the surroundings, the scene doesn't feel pushed on you. It feels very natural. From the bathrooms with the elementary writing on the walls to the brick walls and hardwood floors, to the shuffleboard table, we had one of the best times in years. While the other poster says they've gone away from their original base group, I believe that they've expanded from a small time lounge to a leading contender in the COS nightlife. They may have lost one or two hipsters who only enjoy the original "before it was cool" atmosphere, they have gained 10 other patrons looking for a bar that welcomes dogs on the porch and an amazingly welcoming staff. I feel conflicted in recommending this place as the go to in Colorado Springs, because I don't wanna see it grow into the next unobtainable "Golden Bee" of Colorado, but my experience was flawless, and I wish to see a place that deserves my business flourish.

A great burger and the best french fries I've had in years.

Re: “Ivywild School as a whole exceeds expectations

Bristol has basically abandoned and shunned a small but loyal portion of his customer base who patronized his business since the very beginning in the early 90's. There are too many quality craft beer establishments popping up in our community, who want our business. That is where my dollars will now go. I used to love to go to the old tasting room on Tejon, because it was more intimate and the relationship between customers and staff made it homey. Since the move to Ivywild, our group feels largely ignored, Bristol and the new staff just want the almighty dollar. Go luck, Mike, it was fun while it lasted. I wont be back, and other longtime loyal customers feel the same way.

Re: “The Pinery at the Hill opens and Woody P's new pizzeria

I'm all for The Pinery being a successful business. However, as a concerned neighbor of the business, I am concerned that each added business proposal will only lead to more infringements on our cozy little neighborhood. Already, though it was indicated at the initial meeting that parking lot lights would be established in such a way as to not infringe on the surrounding neighborhood, we spend the night with very bright lights beaming straight through our bedroom window. I hope the business is community-minded and wants to work with the community as a good neighbor and not just for the purpose of having higher revenues.

Re: “Dogtooth Coffee Co: The great good place

Lui,

So I came in on Saturday and it was wonderful.

We beat th crowd, but your system for keeping things coming and the line moving worked just fine.

The coffee was hands down the best in town...really really just right, flavorful without being acidic.

The food was fresh from the oven...the empanadas were wonderful, especially when topped with your salsa.

I will be back...maybe even tomorrow!

Thanks for your hard work...you deserve to succeed, and we all need to support you so we can have a fun and delicious first class place like this in town..

Good morning Kyndra, there is no minimum to use the Wi-Fi. The empanadas come out by 11 am everyday.

Hey Luis,

Great...I'll be in. I do like it there, and perhaps you have improved the coffee over the former guy. Good luck! We all want you to succeed!

Re: “Dogtooth Coffee Co: The great good place

I'm confused. Is Wi-Fi free or not? Can't wait to try the empanadas...and hoping for some Peruvian ceviche!

Re: “Dogtooth Coffee Co: The great good place

Hello TejonTech and thanks for your opinion, but I have to say that we are here for the customers, and the FREE Wi-Fi with a 5.00 purchase it's now free. We will strive everyday to fulfill our customer needs, and hopefully your next review will reflect our commitment with these wonderful community, thanks.

Re: “Dogtooth Coffee Co: The great good place

The funny thing about this place is that it is always different than it appears...it is run for the benefit and out of the fantasy of the owners, and not really for the customers, other than those who obediently fawn over what the owner has in mind.

It is cliquish and loaded with funny little rules...like FREE Wi-Fi (with a $5 purchase).

Somehow coffee has become a side product in a Latino cafe...it is not just right for anyone except perhaps Pagan.

Re: “Bella Panini, Rock House Ice Cream, Heart of Jerusalem Cafe

Been going to heart of Jerusalem for a year now. Always hot in there and the music drives me up the wall. Staff is not very friendly either, although I'd find it hard to be sociable in that swelter all day too. Great food though.

Re: “Brewer's Republic stumbles on new menu

It's a bar with pub food. It can be decent, but there is very little consistency. Burned one day but not the next. Stick with the pizza or a sandwich and a beer. The staff usually seems to have a "don't care" attitude.

Re: “Rico's, Heavenly Squeeze, Little Nepal

Ate at Little Nepal last week...terrific, and they are so lovely to their customers while letting you eat and talk without intrusion...my family left very happy about the food and the experience. What God intended in creating so many spices, textures, and options!

Re: “Brewer's Republic stumbles on new menu

Somehow these brew pubs like Trinity and the The Republic are so cliquish that craft beer lovers who have to attend to job and family don't seem devoted enough to warrant attention from the in-crowd servers at these places on their occasional night out with the guys.

I wouldn't trust food connected to the Underground to be much more than you describe.

For me...the Ivywild School rehab offers a much nicer and cleaner setting with proven food and beer for a cheaper price, nicer treatment, and a certainty that you won;t get food poisoning.
