Best knish in Manhattan, 2006

NewYorkDave | Aug 21, 2006 10:02 PM

If a friend were coming in from out of town and you wanted to turn him/her on to a classic NYC knish, where would you go (in Manhattan)? I know this has been hashed out before, but an update seems in order since the NYC knish scene is in quite a state of flux in recent years. I live a little ways upstate and don't get into the city often enough to be really up on what's going on.

FWIW, my first instinct would be to head for Schimmel's if only for the historical value. (Knishes were decent there last time I visited, but not transcendent).

Actually, I'm interested in the current state of knish-kind in the outer boroughs as well, if only for my own reference. (I doubt I'd succeed in dragging any visitors out to Brooklyn, Queens or wherever).
