Potato Pancakes for the Whole Class!

Potato Pancakes for the Whole Class!

Fourth-grader Hannah Bird of Ayres Elementary read Fat Men From Space by Daniel Pinkwater, where it turns out the hero of the book favored potato pancakes.  That inspired Hannah to bring the book to Kate Schulte, assistant manager of the Anderson Izzy's.  Kate was so impressed with Hannah's grasp of the book that she arranged for potato pancakes and drinks to be catered to Hannah's entire class, of course including her teacher, Mrs. Kirstein. 

Izzy's is proud to reinforce the importance of good literacy skills.  Congratulations to Hannah and Mrs. Kirstein's entire class! We hope you enjoyed the potato pancakes!

  • “We love this place. So glad it came to Ft. Wright. My 2-yr. old loves the pickles and almost makes a meal on them alone. The reubens are great but you owe it to yourself to experiment. The Spicy Delight is awesome and worth a try. ”

  • “Had some quests from Columbus area and Andrian, MI and wanted to take them to a "local" restaurant. My grandson and I decided Izzy's in Forest Park was the choice. They LOVED it. First the delicious pickles and then the famous Ruben and potato pancake. The waitress was great, very friendly and we enjoyed her conversation with our questions. They were very impressed with the food and her. I wish I knew her name but she was the only waitress there. Then even bought a jar of pickles to take home.”
