Milt's BBQ for the Perplexed - A Rabbi's Ribs?

Yes, the name of this restaurant really is "Milt's BBQ for the Perplexed."  And yes, it's a weird, wonderful concept:  a fully cRc-supervised KOSHER barbecue joint that smokes ribs, fries up okra, bakes cornbread and simmers brisket chilli in strict accordance with Jewish dietary laws.  But there's more.  According to its website, Milt's BBQ for the Perplexed seeks to make the world a better place by donating all of its profits to charity. 


Join a lively table of fellow foodies for a fascinating, delicious delve into the melting-pot menu at Milt's -- we'll feast on their smoked-on-site barbecued beef ribs, pulled chicken, juicy burgers and classic brisket sandwiches with all the traditional fixin's: potato salad, barbecued beans and coleslaw.  One word of caution, though, Milt's ain't cheap: a full slab of beef ribs can set you back more than 40 bucks (other menu items are more affordable).  But you can gnaw those bones happily anyway, safe in the knowledge that your hard-earned dinner dollars are being put to good use in your community.  To find out more about Milt's "giving" philosophy, check out the menu in advance, get directions and learn just who the heck "Milt" is, visit their website at

Reservations have been made for 6pm sharp under the name "Litereati" -- please be on time so we can all eat together!  Group size for this event is strictly limited, so we're requiring a small deposit to hold your spot.  When you arrive at dinner, you'll receive your $5 back, in cash, to spend as you like.  If you cancel or no-show, your deposit will be donated to Milt's charity fund.  If you have any questions, comments, recommendations or even suggestions for future adventures for us intelligent foodies, please email me at [masked] (NOTE: THIS IS OUR GROUP'S NEW EMAIL ADDRESS.)

I'm looking forward to feasting with you on August 19th, and in the meantime, here's some gourmet reading to whet your appetite:
