  The knish was most excellent. So many options what can you say. Me it's basic potato with mustard.
Only issue we had was place is still had full Covid in place. Sitting area was blocked off and it was February.
Kid allowed us to eat there in the front, it was cold outside.  Will do again but in warmer weather.

  One of the few legacy kosher jewish spots left in the lower east side.

The knishes here are the best you will ever have and have people coming back for more all the time. If you are in the area you have to stop by this historic spot and grab a knish.... Sooo good

  A piece of NYC history! These knishes are amazing. Flaky, tender crust on the outside with hearty, creamy filling on the inside. I tried the sweet potato, potato, and spinach. All excellent! It's no wonder they've been going strong since 1910.
