PHOTOS: Kosher Barbecue Opens Tuesday on North Broadway

The unique new restaurant Milt’s Barbeque for the Perplexed is serving up kosher dishes starting Tuesday night. And did we mention it’s also a nonprofit?

Lake View’s newest unique restaurant, Milt’s Barbeque for the Perplexed officially opens its doors for dinner Tuesday night.

Not only does the new eatery serve up kosher barbecue dishes, owners plan to donate 100 percent of profits to charity and local organizations. Manager Dan Weiss says based on the soft opening on Thursday, they’re anticipating a successful first donation.

“The first Community Gift of the Month, as we call it, will be given to Nettelhorst Elementary School,” Weiss said. “How much is donated will depend completely on sales, so we really encourage people to come in.”

The idea of a kosher barbecue restaurant forgoing profits is so perplexing, it actually inspired the business’ name, Weiss said.

Located at 3411 N. Broadway at the intersection with Roscoe Street, Milt’s will start serving dinner at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. Weiss encourages people to call ahead to schedule a reservation, as space is limited. Also, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page, the hot new barbecue joint won’t start allowing takeout orders until Feb. 7 or deliveries until March 1.

Hi, I'm Dan, the manager at Milt's. Andy is correct, and Milt's is under cRc supervision and will be strictly kosher.

Does a "non-profit" restaurant mean you don't have to tip then? I would have to assume that all the workers are compassionate volunteers as I'm supposed to be because I'm one of those hellish "9-5 suit and coat people".

It looks like Milts has Liquor at the bar? Really?

My girlfriend and I ate at this restaurant for the first time last week and it is awesome! The staff was super friendly, and the food reminded me of all the comforts of growing up in a kosher world. The restaurant has a very contemporary vibe, and we found out that 100% of the profits (outside of operating costs and payroll/tips) go to charity. A great dining experience for kosher and non-kosher diners alike!
