  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.

  The reference knish. I picked up four in person last November and heated them up at home for a little longer than their website suggests. It's the standard against which I measure all knishes.

  I had never had a knish before, so figured this NY institution was the best place to try it first. With nothing to compare it to, I thought it was pretty good! The potato could have used a little seasoning (of which there was none), but it was a substantial snack and the mushroom variety I had was a nice compliment to the base knish. If looking for a quick snack nearby, worth giving it a try!
